The candidate will take part in research projects funded by the French funding research agency (ANR) and the Ile-de-France region at the Micalis Institute. Micalis (INRAE & AgroParisTech, https://www.micalis.fr) is a research unit of more than 350 researchers developing multidisciplinary approaches and promoting the development of synthetic biology applications for health and biotechnology. Within Micalis, the recruiting research team (~20 staff spread into both wet and dry labs) specializes in developing computer aided design tools for biotechnology including retrosynthesis methods. The candidate will closely collaborate with software developers and interact with Research Scientists, Engineers and PhD fellows.

Poste et missions

We are seeking a candidate to work on novel AI-driven retrosynthesis methods to be applied to synthesis planning in chemistry, retro-biosynthesis in biotechnology and mixed chemical/biological retrosynthesis. The candidate’s tasks include:

  • Develop and benchmark deterministic and AI methods for template-based and template-free one-step retrosynthesis.
  • Embed on-step retrosynthesis within MCTS or AI* search algorithms.
  • Develop methods to perform retrosynthesis with both chemical reactions and biological (enzymatic) reactions. 
  • Develop methods to perform retro-biosynthesis with consortia of organisms.
