Post-doc in Systems Biology: Modeling of Carbon metabolism in E. Coli
Helix, the bioinformatics and biological modeling group at INRIA
Grenoble-Rhône-Alpes (France), is looking for a post-doctoral 
to work on the modeling of the regulation of carbon metabolism in the
enterobacterium Escherichia coli.

We are offering a two-year position, starting as soon as possible. The
post-doc will participate in the project "MetaGenoReg: Towards an
understanding of the interrelations between metabolic and gene
regulation - E. coli carbon metabolism as a test case", which is 
funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR). The objective of
MetaGenoReg is to develop new, scalable methods for the modeling and
analysis of integrated genetic and metabolic networks, and applying
these methods to enhance our understanding of a bacterial model 
The post-doc will develop mathematical models of the regulatory  network
of E. coli, and use these models to simulate the glucose-acetate
diauxie. The predictions obtained from the models will be compared  with
expression data obtained by the experimental partners in the  project, in
order to validate the models and suggest possible revisions of the
underlying hypotheses.

We are looking for a researcher in experimental or theoretical biology,
biophysics, bioinformatics, or mathematical biology with a strong
interest in the modelling of biological networks. The candidate should
be able to function in a multidisciplinary research environment. The
post-doc will have his or her base in the part of the Helix group
located at the Université Claude Bernard in Lyon, while closely
collaborating with Helix members in Grenoble, experimental 
biologists at the Université Joseph Fourier (Grenoble), and other participating
laboratories in MetaGenoReg. Candidates are invited to send a CV  and the
address of two references to:
