About the research centre or Inria department

The Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée center counts 37 research teams and 9 support departments. The center's staff (about 600 people including 400 Inria employees) is composed of scientists of different nationalities (250 foreigners of 50 nationalities), engineers, technicians and administrators. 1/3 of the staff are civil servants, the others are contractual. The majority of the research teams at the center are located in Sophia Antipolis and Nice in the Alpes-Maritimes. Six teams are based in Montpellier and a team is hosted by the computer science department of the University of Bologna in Italy. The Center is a member of the University and Institution Community (ComUE) "Université Côte d'Azur (UCA)".


Post-Doctoral/Starting Research Position up to 2 years is offered within the framework of the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced
Grant CoBCoM: Computational Brain Connectivity Mapping. started on Sept. 1st 2016 for a duration of 5 years.


Main activities

CoBCoM has the overall goal to develop new generation of computational models and methods for identifying and characterizing the structural and functional connectivities of the brain, while integrating complementary non invasive brain imaging modalities as diffusion MRI, EEG and MEG. Clinical applications to high-impact diseases are also considered.

To know more: The article Computational brain connectivity mapping: A core health and scientific challenge published in Medical Image Analysis, MedIA 33(1), Oct. 2016, Pages 122{126 summarizes some challenges and target areas for CoBCoM and the rationale behind them.
