The ENS-PSL Center on Quantitative Biology (https://qbio.ens.psl.eu/en) launches a new JRC (Junior Research Chair) call.
Located in the heart of Paris, PSL inspires dialog among and between all areas of knowledge, innovation, and creativity in Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, Engineering and the Arts. Selective and committed to equal opportunity, it draws directly from current research to train researchers, entrepreneurs, artists and managers who are aware of their social responsibility, both individual and collective. With 2,900 researchers, 17,000 students, 140 laboratories and 10 incubators, fab labs and co-working spaces, PSL is a human-scale university. It ranks among the world’s top 50 universities according to the THE (Times Higher Education) and QS (Quacquarelli Symonds) rankings.
This day will be the occasion for a new meeting between PSL teams interested in issues at the interface of life sciences.
Hélène Morlon is a research director at the CNRS and head of the Biodiversity Modeling team at the Institute of Biology of the ENS-PSL (IBENS). The objective of her work? To better understand how past environmental changes have influenced biodiversity and vice versa, in order to understand current environmental changes. This innovative research, at the crossroads of mathematics and biology, has earned her the prestigious CNRS silver medal in 2021.
The new ENS-PSL Center for Quantitative Biology (QBio) aims to be at the forefront of the transformative changes underway in the life sciences, both in their questioning and in their methodology.
