Open position in Visualization & Simulation Analysis - Postdoc@CNRS, Paris, France

 

** Exa-scalable visual analysis for life & materials sciences **

* Project description *
(see also http://exaviz.simlab.ibpc.fr)
We are seeking a highly motivated candidate to design and implement a next
generation visualization platform for analysis of large-scale molecular
simulations. In particular, we target two grand challenge applications:
modeling a complete influenza virus and analyzing extensive simulations of
the GLIC receptor that we recently published in Nature and PNAS, two leading
journals. Project foundations were previously established, providing a well
defined framework to get started (FvNano). Using visual analytics approaches
and high performance interactive graphics, you will implement readily usable
state-of-art tools scaling up to the next generation of simulations. This
position is a unique training opportunity in a multi-disciplinary environment
in collaboration with four leading teams in France and two international
partners in the U.K. and in Germany.

* Research facilities *
The host laboratory participates in Equipex and Labex excellence in science
programs. As part of the CACSICE Equipex, the candidate will be involved in
building a large high-resolution display wall to boost the ExaViz project and
will have access to a state-of-art VR CAVE with 2-user adaptive stereoscopy
for immersion.

* About the host institute *
The "Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique" was created in 1930 by the
Foundation Edmond de Rothschild. It is associated with the CNRS (Centre National
de la Recherche Scientifique), a leading international scientific institution
offering an exceptional environment to scientists early in their carreer, with
a dynamic international exposure animated by regular seminars and meetings.

Funding is available immediately.

* Qualification and experience *
A PhD or engineer degree in relevant fields (Computer Science, Chemistry/
Bioinformatics,..) and at least one publication in a peer reviewed journal or
at a leading conference are required. The successful applicant should have a
strong background in software development (visualization & graphics, shader
programming, virtual reality, real time applications) and be proficient with
latest hardware technologies. An extensive expertise in computer simulations,
in particular molecular dynamics is highly desirable. The candidate should
also be familiar with at least one modern programming language. Evidence of
the ability to undertake internationally competitive research generating
high quality publications is essential, as are good communication and
organisational skills.

When? 24 months starting ASAP
Where? Laboratoire de Biochimie Thorique, Paris, France
