Machine Learning and Structural Bioinformatics

CNRS-LORIA and Inria Nancy Grand-Est
France Nancy


The CAPSID* team at the LORIA (Inria-CNRS-University of Lorraine, Nancy) is developing computational methods for the classification and modeling of proteins and their interactions with various ligands (RNA, proteins, drugs). The multidisciplinary CAPSID team brings together researchers and teacher-researchers from a variety of backgrounds such as biology, computer science and chemistry. Affected by the death of Dave Ritchie in 2019, the team wishes to strengthen its structural bioinformatics axis by recruiting on a machine learning/deep learning/AI - oriented IT profile applied in this field.
We therefore wish to support candidates (French-speaking or English-speaking) for the 2021 competitions as CNRS researcher (section 6) or INRIA Starting research position**, as well as applications (French-speaking) for a teacher-researcher position (section 27) in 2022.
