Research and Training Opportunities at NIMBioS
Applications are now being accepted for the NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Analyzing Animal Vocal Communication Sequences, to be held October 21-23, 2013, at NIMBioS. The workshop goal is to bridge the gap between mathematical and biological researchers with an interest in the quantitative analysis of animal vocal sequences.Application deadline: June 24, 2013.Click here for a descriptive flyer.

NIMBioS is pleased to begin offering 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. For more information about the fellowship 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. The upcoming deadline will be September 1, 2013 for activities beginning in Spring 2014. Applications for Short-term Visits are considered four times a year, with deadlines on March 1, June 1, September 1, and December 1. 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/.
NIMBioS is now accepting applications from math and biology/science teachers for the Teacher Collaboration Program, which provides links between teachers, scientists, and educators with an interest in making connections between mathematics and biology. NIMBioS will pair teachers with an interest in mathematics and biology with active researchers in the math biology community. For more information about the program and how to apply click here.
