About Inria and the position: Inria promotes "scientific excellence in the service of technology transfer and society".

Inria employs 2,700 people from the world's leading universities to tackle the challenges of computer science and mathematics. His open model allows him to explore original paths with his industrial and academic partners.

Inria is at the origin of many innovations creating value and jobs.The position will be attached to the INRIA center in Paris ( https://www.inria.fr/en/centre/paris ) and more specifically to the DYOGENE research team.

NEMO, NEtwork MOtion, is an inter-disciplinary ERC project centered on network dynamics.

The inter-disciplinarity spans from communication engineering to mathematics, with an innovative interplay between the two. NEMO’s focus is on stochastic geometry.

NEMO’s aim is to introduce dynamics in wireless stochastic geometry. The aim is to have, through these dynamical versions, the same academic and industrial impact on wireless networks as static stochastic geometry has today. NEMO will leverage structural interactions of INRIA with Ecole Normale Supérieure on the mathematical side, and with Nokia Bell Labs and Orange on the engineering side.

This will create in Europe a group focused on this mathematicscommunication engineering interface, and to become the top innovation group of the field worldwide.


The postdocs will be responsible for conducting research activities within the framework of the ERC Nemo project on the following topics: stochastic processes, random graphs, stochastic geometry, point processes, modeling of large networks and more generally to participate in the supervision of the scientific activities of the ERC research group.

Main activities

  • Contribute to research work on the topics listed above.
  • Participate in the supervision of PhD students working on these topics.
  • Participate in the animation of the scientific life of the research group ERC (organization of seminars, working groups and reading).


PhDs in one of the fields listed above leading to original results on stochastic processes and / or modeling of large networks.

The profiles can be of various kinds: for example basic training in probability theory with interests on large random graphs, basic training in statistical physics, with focus on particle systems, basic training in the field of communication networks, with solid foundations in mathematics, etc.
