Offer Description

We are looking for 3 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) to join our project at multiple sites in EU with a master degree in a relevant discipline (chemical engineering / food process engineering / microbiology / bioinformatics / mathematical / computational / data / applied physics sciences) interested to develop innovative modelling techniques aiming to reconstruct the dynamics of complex multiscale biological systems.

The E-MUSE training programme aims at developing young researchers' skills at the interface between artificial intelligence and life sciences. The challenge is to acquire a shared language bridging life science questions and original modelling approaches. The research programme of the E-MUSE network is to develop innovative modelling methodologies to understand a complex microbial ecosystem and identify levers to control and/or predict its evolution. To deal with biological complexity, biologists, mathematicians, and computer scientists have to work together to develop innovative methodologies. An important complexity of this domain originates from scales and dynamics issues, ranging from local kinetics at the level of the cell to emerging macroscopic properties of the biological system. The development of high throughput techniques provides more and more large datasets, but knowledge is not easily inferred from this huge amount of data and multiscale dynamics are still incompletely characterised and predicted. E-MUSE's transdisciplinary network gathers academic and industrial partners to equip Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with scientific, research and transferable skills to become leaders in academic research or industry. They will be at the cutting edge of the modelling methodologies that we apply to model structural and dynamic features of microbial communities, to identify key processes and biomarkers for specific applications.

The EU eligibility criteria state that the applicant needs to be in the first four years of their research careers at the date of recruitment by the host organisation, and have not been awarded a doctoral degree and have not resided or carried out main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organisation ≤ 12 months (in this case France) in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment.
