Postdoctoral research opportunity – Evolutionary models of cancer progression and therapies – University of Montpellier, France

We are looking for a motivated Postdoctoral researcher to employ mathematical and/or computer models to better understand the evolutionary dynamics of cancerprogression and chemotherapeutic treatments.  We are especially interested in applications of ecology, evolution, and population genetics towards more general descriptions and ultimately predictive theories.

The Postdoc is for two years, with a starting date on or before January 1, 2014. The contract is funded by INSERM Plan Cancer and is in collaboration with two cell biology research laboratories (Pr. Urszula Hibner and Pr. Daniel Fisher, IGMM).


Selection criteria: (1)  PhD; (2) Considerable experience in mathematical or computer modeling in the context of cell biology, population ecology and/or evolutionary biology; (3)  Command of written scientific English; (4)  Demonstrated track record of refereed publications in leading journals; (5) Capacity to work under limited supervision.


Interested candidates should send (1) a letter of motivation, (2) a CV, and (3) the names, institutional addresses, and emails of 3 persons who can be contacted for references, on or before July 30, 2013 to Michael Hochberg (  Information about our interdisciplinary research group can be found at
