New tenure-track faculty position at NIMBioS and UT's Department of Microbiology

NIMBioS and the Department of Microbiology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville invite applications for a new tenure-track faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor in the area of Microbial Systems Biology, with a primary appointment in Microbiology. We seek applicants whose research will center on modeling the metabolism, regulation, evolution, and other emergent properties of microbial systems on the intracellular, community, or ecosystem level. Such research should integrate multiple types of experimental data, possibly including biomolecular "omics" data, into a mathematical framework for microbial systems. Review of applications will begin Dec 1, 2016, and will continue until the position is filled.   PDF Flyer


National Science Foundation INCLUDES Conference on Multi-Scale Evaluation in STEM Education

This conference to be held February 23-24, 2017, at NIMBioS will enhance participants' abilities to develop an evaluation plan that meets the needs of an INCLUDES Alliance Project. An online webinar will be held February 9, and a tutorial onsite at NIMBioS will be held on February 22. The conference and tutorial application processes are now closed, but the online webinar is open to the public.

Species' Range Shifts in a Warming World

Applications are now being accepted for the NIMBioS Investigative Workshop: Species' Range Shifts in a Warming World, to be held May 3-5, 2017, at NIMBioS. This workshop will combine mathematical and computational approaches from different fields to link and utilize large but underused datasets developed over decades and lay foundations for genuinely interdisciplinary, collaborative paleoecological science. Application deadline: Feb 1, 2017. Click here for a descriptive flyer. For more information about the workshop and how to apply click here.

Requests for Visits to NIMBioS

NIMBioS hosts short-term supported visitors and self-supported visitors to assist their efforts in carrying out research that conforms to the mission of NIMBioS to foster research at the interface between mathematics and biology. Visitors will work on-site at NIMBioS and may link this visit with a Working Group or other activity at NIMBioS. Applications for Short-term Visits are considered 4 times a year with the following deadlines for submitting the requests: Feb 1, May 1, Aug 1 and Nov 1. Proposed visit dates MUST be at least 6 weeks after the submission deadline. Applications will not be considered until the deadline has passed.

Requests for NIMBioS Support

Requests for NIMBioS support for Working Groups and Investigative Workshops are considered two times per year, with deadlines on Mar 1 and Sep 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.
