The group of D. Holcman (ENS) dedicated to Applied Mathematics and Computational biology offers a postdoc. Fields covered are , modeling polymer, simulation, analysis, chromatin and data analysis.

Title : Analysis, modeling and simulations to reconstruct the cell nucleus organization and the chromatin dynamics from HiC data of cancer cells.

Project :

We recently developed several new methods to reconstruct the chromatin organization from large contact map matrices, using coarse-graining and stochastic polymer models. Our goal is now to develop models of chromatin and representation to study changes of chromatin under stress conditions or across a developing tissue, including immune and cancer cells.

The goal of this postdoc is to develop polymer model, simulations, data in collaboration with experimental groups.

Project is in Collaboration with Daan Noordermeer (Orsay).
