            Postdoctoral position in Bio-Geometry.
           INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (Geometrica), France

Two of the most prominent challenges of the the post-genomic era are
to understand the molecular machinery of the cell and to develop new
drug design strategies. These key challenges require the
determination, understanding and exploitation of the three-dimensional
structure of several classes of molecules ---nucleic acids, proteins,
drugs---, as well as the elucidation of the interaction mechanisms
between these molecules. Most importantly, these challenges involve
aspects from biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computer

Building upon a long and recognized experience in Computational
Geometry and applications, the Geometrica group (formerly Prisme)
( is launching a research
activity in Bio-Geometry ---the geometric component of the
afore-mentioned challenges.

Along this line, a one year Post-Doc position starting Fall 2003
(October / November / December) is now opened.  Its primary focus will
be docking ---protein-protein as well as protein-ligand, with
potential applications to folding. For these reasons, we encourage the
application of:

-Bio-(physicists, chemists) with a background in structural biology and
an inclination for geometry.

-Computer scientists with a background in algorithms design and
analysis or computational geometry, and interests in molecular

Applicants with a Ph.D. are encouraged to submit a vitae as well as
sample representative publications, and arrange for two letters of
recommendation to be sent directly to
