Call for Postdoctoral Fellowships

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/.

Requests for NIMBioS Support

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.

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. Visit requests are considered at any time, but applications should be submitted a minimum of 6 weeks prior to the proposed visit date.
