Position: Junior Research Scientist in dynamic models of structured populations in biology
Institution: French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment
Location: Paris, France
Duties: You will be assigned to the Dynenvie team (Dynamic and Statistical Modeling for Ecosystems, Epidemiology and Agronomy) whose research focuses on temporal and spatio-temporal dynamic phenomena. One of its main research axes concerns the construction of models based on stochastic processes, ordinary differential equations (ODE) or partial differential equations (PDE), and the analysis of their behavior through numerical exploration or model simplification approaches. In addition to numerous collaborations built on applied topics, the team/unit is well inserted in the disciplinary community at the Ile-de-France level (e.g. Fondation Mathématique Jacques Hadamard) and at the national level (e.g. Mabiome group of the SMAI, GDR MathSav)
Requirements: You have a PhD in applied mathematics. A specialization in numerical analysis and PDE is strongly recommended. A solid background in scientific computing, good knowledge of optimization, modeling or estimation methods and an openness to interdisciplinary work between modeling and data analysis is a valuable asset. An interest in biological issues, or even experience in interdisciplinary research at the frontier with biology, would be highly appreciated

INRAE is recruiting researchers by open competition and offering permanent position. It is a major player in research and innovation created on 1st of January 2020. INRAE is a research institute resulting from the merger of INRA and IRSTEA. It is a community of 12,000 people with more than 200 research units and 42 experimental units located throughout France. The institute is among the world leaders in agricultural and food sciences, in plant and animal sciences, and is 11th in the world in ecology and environment. INRAE’s main goal is to be a key player in the transitions necessary to address major global challenges. In the face of the increase in population, climate change, scarcity of resources and decline in biodiversity, the institute develops solutions for multiperformance agriculture, high quality food and sustainable management of resources and ecosystems. Work environment, missions and activities The MaIAGE ("Applied Mathematics and Informatics from Genome to the Environment") research unit of INRAE develops new methods in mathematics and computer science, which may be generic or driven by specific biological problems. You will be assigned to the Dynenvie team (Dynamic and Statistical Modeling for Ecosystems, Epidemiology and Agronomy) whose research focuses on temporal and spatio-temporal dynamic phenomena. One of its main research axes concerns the construction of models based on stochastic processes, ordinary differential equations (ODE) or partial differential equations (PDE), and the analysis of their behavior through numerical exploration or model simplification approaches. In addition to numerous collaborations built on applied topics, the team/unit is well inserted in the disciplinary community at the Ile-de-France level (e.g. Fondation Mathématique Jacques Hadamard) and at the national level (e.g. Mabiome group of the SMAI, GDR MathSav). The Dynenvie team is recruiting a researcher in the development of dynamic models of structured populations based on EDO/EDP, allowing the integration of data and knowledge at different scales. The development of new techniques, particularly molecular, has had a profound impact in fields such as microbial ecology and epidemiology, generating large amounts of data at microscopic scales. The construction and study of complex multi-scale models, suggesting mechanisms to structure and understand these data, poses major scientific challenges. The team is interested in addressing these challenges, both for parameter estimation and analysis of asymptotic behavior as well as simulation. Your mission will focus on the development of methods for the simplification of high-dimensional PDE or integro-differential models, simulation and parameter estimation. The main application will be the development of modeling approaches in microbial ecology, with a particular focus on the integration of high throughput "omics" data into the models. You will rely on numerous collaborations of the team around host-microbiota interactions and pathobiome dynamics in humans and animals. You will be involved in collaborative methodological and more applied projects in line with your research and encouraged to take the initiative. Training and skills PhD or equivalent You have a PhD in applied mathematics. A specialization in numerical analysis and PDE is strongly recommended. A solid background in scientific computing, good knowledge of optimization, modeling or estimation methods and an openness to interdisciplinary work between modeling and data analysis is a valuable asset. An interest in biological issues, or even experience in interdisciplinary research at the frontier with biology, would be highly appreciated. Fluency in English is desirable, as well as long-term international experience: laureates who have not yet had such experience will be strongly encouraged to spend a period of time abroad, co-constructed with the host team, within 3 years after the internship year. INRAE's life quality By joining our teams, you benefit from: - 30 days of annual leave + 15 days "Reduction of Working Time" (for a full time); - parenting support: CESU childcare, leisure services; - skills development systems: training, career advise; - social support: advice and listening, social assistance and loans; - holiday and leisure services: holiday vouchers, accommodation at preferential rates; - sports and cultural activities; - collective catering.
