Research and Training Opportunities at NIMBioS
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.
Applications are now being accepted for the Graduate Workshop on Current Issues in Statistical Ecology, to be held April 15-17, 2015, at NIMBioS. This workshop is co-organized by the Ecological Society of America SEEDS program and SAMSI (Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute). Application deadline: December 1, 2014.

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: Malaria-Leishmania Co-infection, to be held May 26-28, 2015, at NIMBioS. This workshop will identify challenges for the control of malaria-leishmaniasis co-infections in South Asian and the African continent and model the propagation of these co-infections in resource limited regions. Application deadline: February 1, 2015. 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 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. Visit requests are considered at any time, but applications should be submitted a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the proposed visit date.
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.
