The InBio group is an interdisciplinary team performing both wet and dry systems and synthetic biology, with a strong focus on quantitative aspects. It is affiliated to Inria and Institut Pasteur, and is hosted on the Pasteur campus.
Our main goal is to develop experimental platforms, mathematical methods, software, and quantitative molecular biology approaches to rationalize and automate the process of biological discovery. In the long-term, we wish to develop a complete framework that supports iterative design/build/test/learn (DBTL) approaches.
In the recent past, we have developed an experimental platform that combines optogenetic-enabled bioreactor arrays, a pipetting robot and a cytometer to perform parallel turbidostat experiments with automated cytometry (see ReacSight). We have also developed software tools to support reactive microscopy experiments (see MicroMator). We have also developed synthetic biology systems to engineer microbial consortia (see preprint) and to optimize protein secretion in yeast (ongoing).
We offer a permanent position for an experienced research engineer. The successful candidate will help developing lab automation platforms for yeast engineering and will participate in the long-term scientific orientation of the group.
