Inria Junior Professor Chair (CPJ) opened for recruitment in 2022 at Nancy Grand-Est in connexion with CAPSID research activities

This chair is part of the Inria Digital Biology theme and focuses on « AI for the simulation of molecular interactions towards the design of inhibitors for therapeutic usage » (IA-SIMIT). It is linked to the work carried out in the CAPSID team.

The highly competitive CPJ Inria positions are offered under public-law fixed-term contracts (CDD) (3 to 6 years) with a view to tenure in the corps of research directors at Inria*.

Read the full announcement , and check the conditions and the calendar to apply.
IMPORTANT. The application deadline is July 3rd, 2022 with auditions scheduled for the second half of July and taking office on September 1st, 2022.
The candidates sought must present recognized expertise in structural bioinformatics and/or AI methods, and teaching experience.
If you are interested, please send us your CV and contact us:
– Marie-Dominique Devignes (Responsable de l’équipe CAPSID)
– Isaure Chauvot de Beauchêne (Responsable de l’axe Bionformatique Structurale dans l’équipe CAPSID)
as well as:
– Bruno Lévy (Directeur du Centre de Recherche Nancy Grand-Est)
as soon as possible to discuss your project.

*: The CPJs benefit from a favorable research environment including teaching activities in an Inria partner higher education institution (up to 28 hours of classes or 42 hours of practical or supervised work per year) and dedicated funding. Recruited scientists can join an existing Inria team or propose the creation of a new project-team.

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.
