Post-doctoral position available to collaborate with Simoma Cocco, Remi Monasson, Thierry Mora and and Aleksandra Walczak to work on modelling the interactions between the immune system and neoantigens.

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated post-doctoral candidates to work on a theoretical biophysics project aimed at understanding the interactions between the immune system and neoantigens - mutated sequences in cancer cells. The aim of the study will be to investigate the ability of the immune system to control the evolution of cancers, depending on the patient antibody repertoire developed in response to previously encountered infections.

The post doc will be working in the Physics Departement at the Ecole Normale Superieure-Paris, under the supervision of S. Cocco (LPS-ENS), T. Mora (LPS-ENS), R. Monasson (LPT-ENS) and A. Walczak (LPT-ENS), and will be funded by a Stand Up To Cancer grant, in collaboration with B. Greenbaum (Tisch Cancer Institute, Mount Sinai, New York) and Vinod Balachandran (Memorial Sloan-Kettering).

Post-doc candidates are expected to have solid experience in statistical physics, inference methods and data analysis, and both analytical and computer programming skills. Moreover he/she should have a deep interest and possibly a previous experience in biology. His/her work will be fully interdisciplinary, including both elaboration of models and inference methods, sequence-data analysis and experimental data analysis in direct interaction with experimentalists.

Interested candidates, please send a CV with list of publications with a short email motivating your interest in the position by May 15th 2018 to Simona Cocco, Remi Monasson, Thierry Mora and Aleksandra Walczak.
