    • Offer for a Thesis AllowanceSubject: 4D distribution of past stress in fold-and-thrust belts: study of the Umbria Marche Apennine Ridge, Italy.

      The state of stress is a fundamental but elusive information to apprehend. Stress history is responsible of most of the strain in the crust, governing numerous problematics of strong societal impact, like earthquake tectonics, georesource distribution, or to calibrate geomechanical models. The long(>Ma)-term spatial-temporal evolution of the stress magnitude is mandatory to validate existing numerical, analogous and mechanical models accounting for stress compartmentalization in folds and in fold-and-thrust belt.

    • Offer for a Thesis AllowanceSubject : Modeling of conducting poro-elastic media using advanced numerical methods.

      A seismic wave propagating in a porous media generates electromagnetic (EM) wavefields through the so-called seismoelectric conversion. The EM contribution can then be divided into two different categories 1) a co-seismic transient electric field accompanying the seismic wave, 2) an electromagnetic wave generated by the conversion of seismic into EM energies at the interface separating two different porous media. The first EM wave follows the seismic and does not carry that much more information compared to the seismic whereas the depth-converted EM waves have potentially huge application in near-surface Geophysics since, for example, a water-oil contact would generate an EM seismoelectric conversion where the seismic field could be poorly sensitive to such an interface. The quantitative understanding of the conversion at interfaces is still poorly known and has only been seldom observed in the field and in a few laboratory experiments.

    • Offer for a Thesis AllowanceSubject : Rainbow trout amino acid metabolism: from amino acid uptake to outcomes on trout physiology

      Fisheries and aquaculture remain important sources of food, nutrition, income and livelihoods for hundreds of millions of people around the world. World per capita fish supply reached a new record high of 20 kg in 2014, thanks to vigorous growth in aquaculture, which now provides half of all fish for human consumption (FAO, 2016). Aquaculture therefore plays an increasingly important role in the global food system, the environment, and human health. However, the sustainability of this practice, which requires large inputs of wild fish for feed, has been questioned.

    • Postdoctoral positionSubject : Identification of mTOR amino-acid sensing regulators in rainbow trout

      The discovery of the serine/threonine kinase called mechanistic Target of Rapamycin (mTOR) considerably contributed to improve our understandings in basic cell/organism biology. More than 20 years later, it is generally accepted that mTOR plays a central role linking nutrients availability with cell growth proliferation and metabolism. Amongst the multitude of signals leading to mTOR activation, one remains to be clarified: the amino-acid sensing pathway. Indeed, numerous studies performed in various in vitro and in vivo models (human and mouse cell lines, yeast…) have identified key players and pathways by which mTOR senses amino acids. However, the available data are still contradictory and far from exhaustive.
