Post-doc position in structural computational biology at LAAS-CNRS,  
Toulouse, France.

A postdoctoral position is opened at LAAS-CNRS (http://www.laas.fr)  
for conducting research in structural
computational biology. The position is within the framework  of a  
multidisciplinary  project conducted by the
robotics group at LAAS with biologists partners sharing expertise in  
structural biology, bioengineering and
molecular modeling. The project aims at developing fast and accurate  
computational methods for flexible
macromolecular docking. See details at :


The position is founded by a CNRS grant for a duration of up to two  
years. The expected starting date is
September (or October) 1st  2008. See further conditions on the grant  
at the  CNRS website :

Applicants are expected to hold a PhD in robotics with a research  
background in robot algorithms, motion
planning, mechanical modeling or a related field in computer science.  
Excellent programming skills are also
required. Some background in structural bioinformatics, would also be  
expected (at least a strong interest
for interdisciplinary research and computational biology).

Applications should include CV, a statement of research interests,  
two recommendation letters, plus the
application file (https://www2.cnrs.fr/DRH/post-docs08/medias/tpl/pdf/ 
The application has to be sent to Thierry Siméon (nic at laas.fr) who  
can also be contacted for more information.

The application deadline is March 30  2008.
