Hi, I am Celine Scornavacca, a CNRS researcher based in Montpellier, France.

I am Italian and I graduated in mathematical engineering at the University of Rome in 2006. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Montpellier in 2009. After a postdoctoral position at the University of Tübingen, I joined the Institut des Sciences de l’Evolution de Montpellier (ISEM) as CNRS research associate in October 2011.

My research interests include parameterized complexity, supertree and network methods for phylogenetics, combinatorics and bioinformatics.

I have been awarded an ANR JCJC grant starting in 2020 and running for 4 years. I am looking for a Ph.D. student and a 2-years post-doc with a good mathematical background (statistics and combinatorics) who are interested in working on projects related to evolutionary biology. I also have a 1-year (maybe extendable) position for a software engineer opening in 2021.
