JOB DESCRIPTION
This project aims at modelling behaviors in five autism spectrum disorder (ASD) mouse models, caused by genetic mutations or by excessive gestational weight gain (GWG, detected today in half of the women), or a combination of both. We will join the complementary expertise of three teams from three laboratories to investigate lifelong the « spontaneous behavior » of mice freely moving into an open space, by using a recently developed system based on novel and evolutive tools (Live Mouse Tracker - LMT https://livemousetracker.org, DeepLabCut - DLC http://www.mackenziemathislab.org/deeplabcut).

Behaviors of all living beings consists of patterns in time: identifying this set of patterns available to an animal is key to making quantitative descriptions of behavior. We thus propose a 3D behavioral analysis pipeline dedicated to the study of temporal series of single actions (including individual, dyadic or group actions). This framework will rely on computer vision (tracking, pose recognition, ….) and recent deep learning techniques (transformers, auto-encoders, …), and will consider these action time series at multiple time-scales.

The main goal of this project is then to develop algorithms to analyze different sequences corresponding to different levels of social behaviors versus non-social behaviors, both defined as sequences of events. We here propose to investigate a new and original solution

Salary: between 48.000 and 70.000 euros/year depending on experience
3-year contract

QUALIFICATIONS/SKILLS/EDUCATION & RESEARCH REQUIREMENTS

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a strong background in both mathematics and computer science. The candidate should demonstrate good skills in computer vision (tracking, video sequence analysis) and in machine/deep learning (knowledge in transformers, auto-encoder would be appreciated). We also expect the candidate to be open-minded, curious and autonomous.
