I am a Full Professor at INSA Rouen Normandy, affilitated to the Litis Lab. My research interests include machine learning, AI and applications on object detection and classification.
CurrentIy I am the Reseach Head of INSA Rouen Normandy. From 2020 to 2022 I was the Deputy Head of LITIS Lab after being the Head of the Computer Science Department from 2013-2016. Back in 2008 and 2009, I was a visiting researcher at NEC Labs America.
Expected Starting date: as soon as possible but no later than end of January, 2023
Keywords: Machine Learning, Molecule Representation Learning, Deep Learning, Transfer Learning, chemical molecules synthesis, cyclopropanes.
This position is proposed in the context of the french project CYCLIA for tailoring statistical models to optimize the asymmetric synthesis cyclopropane compounds: chemical molecules representation, prediction algorithms, evaluation framework. The project is funded by the Normandy Region. It gathers 2 research teams: the Machine learning team of LITIS lab and the Biomolecules Synthethis Team of COBRA at INSA Rouen Normandy (France).
The Post-doc candidate will join the Machine learning team of the LITIS in Rouen (France), and will have the opportunity to closely collaborate with the reknown experts in Organic and Bio-organic molecules synthesis.of COBRA. The Machine learning team is composed of 15 permanent researchers and several PhD, post-doctorates. The candidate will be part of the machine learning project of the lab whose topics include statistical learning, deep learning, representation learning, domain adaptation, graph learning…
The objective of this project is to propose new machine learning methods to predict/optimize the asymmetric synthesis cyclopropane compounds that are present in the structure of many drugs, based on the chemical reactants, the catalysts, and the experimental conditions.
Research topics of interest include but are not limited to:
We are searching for a highly motivated candidate with:
The post-doc position is located in Rouen a mid-size city of Normandy (France). The hosting research group has established expertise in relevant domains including statistical machine learning, deep learning, optimal transport, domain adaptation. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in synergy with a post-doctorant and a Ph.D. student involved in the CYCLIA project. The expected salary is 2172 euros NET per month, including healthcare.
