Call for candidates for a teacher-researcher position in 2022

(Obsolete)The multidisciplinary CAPSID team brings together researchers and teacher-researchers from a variety of backgrounds such as biology, computer science and chemistry. Affected by the death of Dave Ritchie in 2019, the team wishes to strengthen its structural bioinformatics axis by recruiting on a machine learning/deep learning/AI – oriented IT profile applied in this field.

We therefore wish to support applications (French-speaking) for a teacher-researcher position at the Université de Lorraine (section 27) in 2022.
