The new direction of Institut Pasteur has defined bioinformatics and systems biology as strategic priorities. A « Center for Bioinformatics, Biostatistics and Integrative Biology » has been recently created on the Parisian Campus. The objective of this center is to federate and strengthen capacities in bioinformatics in different yet complementary research areas developed within the Institute, such as genomics of hosts and pathogens, biology of infection, evolutionary genetics, population genetics, structural biology or health biology.
In this framework, Institut Pasteur proposes 10 permanent positions in bio-informatics and biostatistics for 2015. People will be affiliated to the new center and to the Hub of bioinformatics and biostatistics and will be supervised by the director of the Center. They may be assigned for most of their time to research units and / or platforms to work on different projects while being close to the data and experimental biology.
