To be honest, I must say that I am quite desperate . Why ?
It is a long time I've been looking for a full time or contract
positions within immunology laboratories but it still doesn't
work ! It is true that I've no educational immunology background but as I am
very inquiring spirit and very motivated, I've read lots of book,
articles, discuss with many immunologists, that's why I can say now that
I am a 'good' novice in that domain. I do not pretend to work of course
as a high skilled researcher in immunology but I think that my computing
background and experience could be a good contribution to many immunology
research programs. I am really interested in switching in this research
field, especially in TCells and MHC molecules, HIV,...
I really want to work for researchers by designing and carrying out
graphic tools systems with PCs or workstations like sparc, RS/6000,etc..
I am motivated to learn immunology technics and knowledge and help
researchers in their works. I have a strong interest in Image (3D, 2D).
I think I have a good Graphic interface background with numerous platforms
like OpenLook, XWindow, MS-Windows, GKS. Moreover, my educational background in
harware could be a plus to develop some new devices in order to improve
Human-Machine interface in immunology like virtual realities (example: travel
inside the human body and analyse, modelize Cells receptors - paratope/epitope
, carry out 3D animations to improve communication impact during conferences,
and so on...)
As you can see, I have the research feeling and I am always fascinated
in working for research. I got my Master degree in Computer Science and
Electrical Engineering from Engineer School, Nantes University - FRANCE.
I am quick at learning, hard working, results oriented and really creative.
I think the combination of knowledges in both programming and Image with
training and experience will enable me to make contribution to your laboratory.
The following is what I am familiar with
* C, C++, Fortran, Pascal and Visual-Basic
* Sun OpenWindows, MS-Windows 3.1, X-WINDOW, GKS, ...
* Unix SunOs, AIX, MS-Dos 6.0
* 3D Image, ray-tracing, ...
* MS-Word, FrameMaker, Ventura-Publisher
My resume is enclosed for your reference. Thank you for considering my
qualifications for any potential position. Please call or e-mail me
if I can provide any additional information.

1993 Project of Genealogy research programm with MS-Windows and
Borland C++ : (graphic interface, easy to use, powerful tree
drawing, ...) Contacts with french firm to commercialize it
1992 IBM France (Montpellier). Six-month industrial training period as
a local area network administrator in the Advanced Techniques
Group. I was responsible for 20 Xstations, 6 PS2 and 3 RS/6000
workstations under AIX 3.2 and TCP/IP protocols. I designed an
Xwindow module in order to facilitate LAN administration.
Moreover, I made a close study of external connections on Internet
with X.25 protocols (IP encapsulated).
1992 Real-time application in VxWorks environment. I set a real-time
speed control up in a distributed architecture with a Sun Sparc
and two 68030 VME cards. The Sun workstation was used to design
the speed graph (Sunview) and both VME cards to control the motor.
1992 I carried out a graphic program to assist researchers in spectrum
analysis. (Atomic and Molecular Physics Department - University
of Rennes - France)
1991 Two-month industrial training period with the S2HF research
laboratory in Nantes. This laboratory works on Hyper-frequency
for radar measurements. I made an easy and interactive interface
to visualize 2D & 3D hyper-frequency images.
1991 Communication project selected by the Telesystems Institute of
Paris. I presented my project in May 1991 in M.I.T and Boston
1990 Industrial training period with La Telephonie Centrale
(French Telephone Company which marketed Numeris(ISDN) telephone).
I designed and carried out a local area network to facilitate
interdepartment communication inside the company. I used
Dbase III+ with DBcom option module and LAN servers.
1988-1989 I designed my own 1200 bps server at home on Apple //c. It was
based on the modem card of the well-known french terminal :
1987 One-month training period with GRAVI Production (French company
specialized in Image Synthesis and 3D animation). I made a program
on Apple //c to preview 3D wire frames and a serial link to the
main graphic server.
1984 I designed a video-game in 6502 machine code on Oric Atmos.
It was selected by LORICIELS french video-game editor.
1983 I designed my first video-game "CANADA" on ORIC-1.
It was commercialized by MICROLOGIC, a french video-game editor.
