PhD Students for Labex INFORM: Integrative and quantitative biology network

 Labex Inform  Marseille
The INFORM program sets up an interdisciplinary consortium gathering 11 groups from 4 research institutes on campus Developmental Biology Institute of Marseille (IBDM), Centre for Immunology of Marseille Luminy (CIML), Laboratory of Adhesion and Inflamation (LAI) and Structure and Assembly of membrane proteins by Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). The objective is to understand, through collaborations between biologists and physicists, the biochemical and mechanical basis of cell signaling in both normal and pathological conditions. 

For this purpose, we aim at:
- Developing innovative quantitative imaging techniques
- Developing new tools to monitor signaling in vivo
- Building quantitative models of signaling
- Linking these models with physiological functions

We seek to build an interdisciplinary research community through a combination of:
- Collaborative research projects
- Innovative training
- International networking through workshops and seminars

The Labex INFORM is looking for talented and highly motivated students interested in interdisciplinary approaches to decipher biological processes (please visit the website for more details on the research projects). Students with background in biology, physics, engineering or applied mathematics/informatics , are highly encouraged to apply. Students enrolled in the PhD Program at the Labex INFORM will benefit of a three year fully funded fellowship starting October, travelling fellowship, specific training and personal mentoring in extremely well resourced laboratories with state of the art core technology facilities.
