Position 1: Postdoc position available in mathematics and computational biophysics

The group of D. Holcman dedicated to mathematics and computational biology is looking for a postdoc fellow interested in stochastic modeling, image processing, involving massive empirical data related to motion in live cell tissue.

The candidate for this position is expected to be strongly motivated by mathematical sciences, biophysics and biological sciences. The candidate should have a PhD in applied probability and be passionate by her/his research. We also expect that the candidate has already demonstrated a usual ability to publish in leading journals. ENS is a top international institution, located in the center of Paris, with a long tradition of excellence in research. The review process will continue until the position is filled. ENS is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer. Applicants should send:

Position 2: Postdoc position available in computer science between hospital and a start-Up company

Position available in Signal processing and computer science:

We are looking for a fellow to design iphone apps with medical applications: blood flow monitoring or heart monitoring. The work involves data analysis, signal processing and designing e-phone applications. This research involves working in interdisciplinary areas, with clinician from Hospital and Start-Up companies.

The candidate for this position will be expected to be very strongly and very good programmers. The candidate can have a PhD/Master diploma or graduated from an engineering school.

Applicants should send:
- a letter of application,
- current vitae
- two letters of recommendation addressed directly to: David Holcman 46, rue d’Ulm 75005 Paris France david.holcman ens.fr

Example of a project: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm). Instead of a coordinated contraction, the heart muscles of the atria are not working in synchrony. In AF, the normal electrical impulses that are generated by the sinoatrial node are overwhelmed by disorganized electrical impulses that originate in the atria and pulmonary veins, leading to conduction of irregular impulses to the ventricles that generate the heartbeat. The result is an irregular heartbeat which may occur in episodes lasting from minutes to weeks, or it could occur all the time for years. The natural tendency of AF is to become a chronic condition. Chronic AF leads to an increase in the risk of death and stroke. We propose to use i-phone apps to monitors heart in various condition. The goal of the project is to construct an computer interface and/or analyze massive data generated.

This project brings together on one hand the groups of Pr. A. Cohen Stephane Edhery, cardiologists from Hosp. St Antoine (Paris, France), which have accumulated an expertise in AF and on the group of mathematical modeling of Pr. D. Holcman and juergen Reingruber, specialized in applied mathematics, biophysical modeling, random stochastic dynamical systems and numerical simulations.

Summary: Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm). Instead of a coordinated contraction, the heart muscles of the atria are not working in synchrony. In AF, the normal electrical impulses that are generated by the sinoatrial node are overwhelmed by disorganized electrical impulses that originate in the atria and pulmonary veins, leading to conduction of irregular impulses to the ventricles that generate the heartbeat. The result is an irregular heartbeat which may occur in episodes lasting from minutes to weeks, or it could occur all the time for years. The natural tendency of AF is to become a chronic condition. Chronic AF leads to an increase in the risk of death and stroke. We propose to model AF, starting from the electrical properties of the heart tissue, to analyze the bifurcation in the derived model, to study the complex patterning occurring in the surface of the heart, to identify the related features observed in the electrocardiogram. The project should aim to produce numerical simulations that will be used to diagnose early signs of AF, so that early decision could be taken at the medical level. A data base would be available to test potential predictions. This project brings together on one hand the groups of Pr. A. Cohen , cardiologist from Hosp. St Antoine (Paris, France), which has accumulated an expertise in AF, having collected a pool of data about AF and on the other hand, the group of mathematical modeling of Pr. D. Holcman, specialized in applied mathematics, biophysical modeling, random stochastic dynamical systems and numerical simulations.
