Research and Training Opportunities at NIMBioS
Applications are now being accepted for the NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Heart Rhythm Disorders, to be held Dec 3-5, 2014, at NIMBioS. This workshop will unite researchers from different disciplines – clinicians, mathematicians, physicists, biomedical engineers, and industrial practitioners – in order to better understand the existing mathematical challenges and to explore new directions in modeling cardiovascular dynamics. Application deadline: August 1, 2014. Click here for a descriptive flyer. For more information about the workshop and how to apply click here.
Requests for NIMBioS support for Working Groups, Investigative Workshops, and Sabbatical Fellows are considered two times per year, with deadlines on March 1 and September 1. Requests for Short-term Visits are considered at any time, but applications should be submitted a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the proposed visit date. All areas of research at the interface of biology and mathematics will be considered, but we are especially interested in activities expanding beyond the areas of research supported to date. Potential organizers of activities in areas of molecular biology, cell biology, network biology, immunology and systems biology are particularly encouraged to submit requests for support of Working Groups or Investigative Workshops.
NIMBioS considers applications for postdoctoral scholarship two times per year, with deadlines on September 1 and December 11. We are particularly interested in requests to support research that integrates diverse fields, requires synthesis at multiple scales, and/or makes use of or requires development of new mathematical/computational approaches. Complete the online application and submit a brief project description, references, and CV following the guidelines available at http://www.nimbios.org/postdocs/.

Applications are now being accepted for the NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Information and Entropy, to be held Apr 8-10, 2015, at NIMBioS. The principle of maximum entropy production has emerged as a fascinating yet controversial approach to predicting the behavior of biological systems, from individual organisms to whole ecosystems. This investigative workshop will bring together top researchers from these diverse fields to share insights and methods and address some long-standing conceptual problems. Application deadline: November 12, 2014. Click here for a descriptive flyer. For more information about the workshop and how to apply click here.
NIMBioS is pleased to offer fellowships for visits to NIMBioS for up to several months by graduate students interested in pursuing research with NIMBioS senior personnel, postdoctoral fellows or working group participants. The program is designed to facilitate graduate student training while fostering research at the interface of mathematics and biology.
