About the ELMI

ELMI was created in 2001 to establish a unique communication network between European scientists working in the field of light microscopy and the manufacturers of their equipment.

Group Leaders, Turing Centre for Living Systems (CENTURI), Aix-Marseille university, France

CENTURI brings together leading institutes in biology, physics, mathematics, computer science  and engineering to decipher the complexity and dynamics of living systems. CENTURI offers an exceptional international environment for the development of interdisciplinary projects, in    developmental biology, immunology and neurosciences.

Five overarching questions underpin the interdisciplinary research effort:

How does genetic information impact on cell fates?
How do signaling dynamics impact on cell differentiation?
How is information encoded in collective cellular dynamics?
How do networks of cell interactions form and function collectively?
How does mechanics impact on cell and tissue organization and dynamics?

CENTURI is mainly located in the Luminy campus of Aix-Marseille University and is affiliated to Aix-Marseille University, CNRS, INSERM and École Centrale Marseille.

CENTURI seeks to attract outstanding physicists, mathematicians or computer
scientists with a theoretical and/or computational biology project.

Application deadline 26 February 2018.
