Postdoctoral researcher in bacterial evolutionary epidemiology, CNRS Paris (starting Sep 2019, 2 years) with @FrancoisJB #AMR #Evolution

Postdoc position in bacterial evolutionary epidemiology in Paris (France)

A postdoc position, funded by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique ("Momentum" grant), is available to work with François Blanquart in Paris.

The postdoc will join the two research groups in which I am based : one in Quartier Latin in the center of Paris (Centre Interdisciplinaire de Recherche en Biologie, UMR CNRS 7241, Collège de France) specialised in mathematical models to study evolution, the other on the Bichat Medical School campus in the North of Paris (Infection, Antimicrobials, Modelling, Evolution, UMR INSERM 1137) specialised in infectious diseases ecology & evolution. These groups offer opportunities for collaborations with mathematical modellers, bioinformaticians, medical doctors, and biologists.

I am looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher, interested in understanding the evolution of the commensal bacterial species Escherichia coli in the human population over the last 40 years, with a particular focus on the evolution of antibiotic resistance and virulence. The postdoc will develop mathematical and computational models of evolution and/or analyse epidemiological and genomic data depending on his/her interests. Strong quantitative skills are required for the position, as well as some background or interest in either evolutionary biology, infectious disease epidemiology, or bioinformatics.

The position start in September 2019 and is for two years. Salary depends on experience (see table below).
