A 2-year postdoc position between the group of U. Ferrari (stat. phys. and
neuroscience) and D. Dalkara (gene therapy and animal models) will open
at the Vision Institute in Paris.
The position can start as soon as November
2020, but it will be open until we will find a suitable candidate.
Project: develop next generation protein-engineering strategies using directed
evolution guided by machine learning and statistical inference. The aim is to
engineer new viral vectors for more efficient gene delivery to primate neural tissue.
Skills: We are looking for a candidate with a background in either statistical physics,
bioinformatics, or machine learning. Some coding skills are required, basic
knowledge in molecular biology is not mandatory, but highly valuable. The ability
to work in interdisciplinary contexts and to interact with experimentalists would
be much appreciated.
