If you have questions about this aid arises, please visit the official source and ask your questions directly to the center.

Fellowship for Postdoctoral position is available under MediCIS team of Laboratory of Signal and Image Processing at Medical University, Rennes in France. The position is offered for the project S3PM (Synthesis and Simulation of Surgical Process Models) which has been initiated as a first funded project under the French government funded program ‘Laboratories of Excellence’. To apply for this fellowship, applicants have to submit their application and CV by post..  To foster research and innovation at highest international level, the french government has launched the program “Investissements d’Avenir”. As part of the former, the program “Laboratoires d’Excellence” is assigned 1 billion Euros in capital, for a 10 years period. The CominLabs is an initiative selected as part of the “Laboratoires d’Excellence” program by the French ministry of research and education. It has been assigned 40 Million Euros in capital, resulting in an effective annual funding of 1.4 Million Euros for a 10-year period. The CominLabs has been the only Laboratoire d’Excellence selected in the area of software sciences. One research area of CominLabs is ICT for personalized medicine. Within this challenge, the project S3PM (Synthesis and Simulation of Surgical Process Models) has been selected as one of the first funded projects. The candidate will have to investigate a methodology for aggregating patient specific SPMs into generic SPMs, as well as new directions for representing, analyzing, and executing these gSPMs. Graph representations as well as probabilistic networks will be studied. The added value of ontological representation in the modelling of the gSPMs will be studied. Finally the candidate will validate the approaches in the context of surgical teaching applications. Databases of patient specific SPMs in neurosurgery, interventional neuroradiology and eye surgery are already available for testing and validating these approaches.. The fellowship is offered for pursuing postdoctoral program.
The research areas of this scholarship are: Research area is Synthesis and Simulation of Surgical Process Models.
Who can apply to this scholarship?  The candidate should have a PhD in information processing, analysis or related subjects. Experience and publications related to process modeling or workflow analysis are a must. Programming skills are required (Matlab, C++, Java, OCaml, or C#). Skills in semantic web technologies (ontology languages OWL, RDFS, RDF) are welcome.
Benefits of the scholarship:  Salary: about 2200 Euros / month (net).
