2) Winter School "Physics and Mathematics of Turbulent Flows at Different Scales" - February 24 -March 1 2019, Les Houches, France

from  Valerio Lucarini <[log in para visualizar]>

 

Dear colleague,

 

We would like to invite you to apply for the Winter School entitled “Physics and Mathematics of Turbulent Flows at Different Scales”, taking place on February 24th-March 1st 2019 at the Les Houches Physics center (https://houches.univ-grenoble-alpes.fr/en/) based in Les Houches, France.

 

The school will bring together experts in physics, mathematics, and (geo)physical fluid dynamics providing participants with scientific knowledge across disciplinary boundaries, leading them towards the many open problems in geophysical fluid dynamics, where new tools, theories and ideas are needed in order to advance substantially our understanding of weather, ocean and climate as a whole on different spatial and temporal scales.

 

We will have a total of 14 lectures lasting each 75 mins. The lectures will focus on advances on the mathematics and physics of fluid flows at different scales, ranging from laboratory to geophysical systems. Four main streams of activities will be explored, based on the paradigm of deterministic chaotic systems, stochastic dynamics, theory of turbulence, and statistical mechanics. The lectures will cover simultaneously theoretical analytic advances in these areas as well as computational techniques. The need for a fruitful interplay between analytical understanding and data-driven approaches will be highlighted.

 

The Physics School of Les Houches is located in the French Alps (Savoy) and has been hosting worldwide renowned training and scientific events since 1951. Lodging and food are provided on site. Ample time will be reserved for discussions as well as individual and joint social activities. Arrival of participants is possible after 3 pm on Sunday February 24th.

POST-DOC POSITIONS


1) Postdoctoral position in mathematical modeling of biological networks

 

There is an opening of a postdoctoral position at University Grenoble-Alpes ([log in para visualizar]) for a talented young scientist

that will develop an interdisciplinary activity on the modeling of biological networks. More details are given below and in the attached document.

Please forward this opportunity to the attention of any suitable candidates.

 

Title Dynamic modeling of iron-linked redox perturbations in Acute Myeloid Leukemia

 

Context Acute Myeloid Leukemia are a class of deadly hematopoietic diseases with an astonishing large variety of driver mutations. Diagnosis usually occurs during a blast crisis whereby leukemic clones escape the bone marrow and invade peripheral blood. The general objective of the project, funded by the french Plan Cancer (Cancer Systems Biology program), is to sort out the main molecular differences between normal and leukemic cells so as to identify new and innovative therapeutic targets.

 

Project The successful candidate will be in charge of developing models of energy-related networks involved in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). Several modules are envisioned, such as iron homeostasis, control of cell cycle, hypoxia responsive network.

 

New computational methods to perform set-based simulations will be developed in collaboration with one of the partners of the project (Verimag lab). We use these techniques to cope with the large uncertainties in model parameters. Recent methods for model reduction will be assessed, and possibly new ones developped. He/she will also interact with biologists to integrate experimental data generated in the frame of the project, and extract biological knowledge from the models.

 

Profile Good knowledge in at least some of the following topics: numerical methods, optimization, modeling methods (sensitivity analysis, parameter inference), bayesian statistics.

 

Good programming skills (in e.g. python, julia). Basic knowledge of molecular biology is desirable. A previous interdisciplinary experience in connection with biology would be a plus.

 

Scientific environment The successful candidate will be part of an interdisciplinary consortium called ‘Dynamical Modeling of LAMs’ involving four labs and gathering biologists, physicians, modellers, computer scientists, and physicists.

 

She/He will also benefit from the excellent scientific environment of the TIMC-IMAG laboratory (CNRS & UGA) which gathers scientists and clinicians towards the use of computer science and applied mathematics for understanding and controlling normal and pathological processes in biology and healthcare. The TIMC-IMAG laboratory is located in Grenoble, one of the biggest academic cities in France, with the French Alps nearby.

 

Duration 21 months

2) Postdoctoral position on statistical-physics models for spatial localization in cell biology,

in our group at Institut Curie (Paris)

From [log in para visualizar]

 

We are seeking a candidate for a postdoctoral position on statistical-physics

models for spatial-localization mechanisms in cell biology.

 

The aim of the project is to study the physical processes by which a large of

number of molecules, e.g., proteins, form localization patterns in space,

such as multiple protein clusters within a cell. In particular, we aim at

understanding the physical mechanisms which are responsible for the formation

of clusters on a specific length and time scale. A notable example of such a

mechanism is the assembly pathway—the sequence of binding events which lead

to the formation of large multi-molecule clusters. For example, two

prototypic pathways that can lead to clustering are either a single binding

of two large complexes, or a large number of single-molecule bindings. As a

result, we will aim at characterizing, altering and controlling the assembly

pathways in order to obtain cluster formation on a desired time scale, and

thus potentially achieve specific biological functions.

 

The project involves a variety of topics, including:

 

- numerical solution of reaction-diffusion equations, that describe the

formation of multi-molecule clusters on a cellular scale

- molecular-dynamics simulations, that describe binding and assembly of a

handful of molecules on a molecular scale.

 

The candidate should have a strong background in theoretical and statistical

physics and strong technical skills, both from the analytical and numerical

standpoint.

 

This study will be combined with an ongoing experimental project at Institut

Curie, which is focused on the spatial localization of guanine

nucleotide-binding protein subunit alpha (GNAQ) in uveal melanoma (UM)—a

cancer for which no systemic treatment has improved survival for the last

decades. Our colleagues M. H. Stern and M. Coppey are assessing

experimentally the localization of GNAQ protein, providing data which would

allow us to construct a sensible model for GNAQ clustering. Given that GNAQ

clustering is correlated with UM proliferation, such model would allow us to

understand and leverage the GNAQ assembly mechanisms in an effort to enhance,

inhibit and ultimately control UM growth according to clinical needs.

 

The project is part of a French ‘National Agency for Research’ (ANR) grant,

and the two-year postdoctoral appointment will start in the Fall of 2019 or

earlier. Please send your CV to [log in para visualizar] if you are

interested.
