NIMBioS offers fellowships for visits for up to several months by graduate students interested in pursuing research with NIMBioS Affiliate Faculty, postdoctoral fellows or working group participants. Visiting graduate students will work on-site at NIMBioS. The program is designed to facilitate graduate student training while fostering research at the interface of mathematics and biology. Graduate students at the beginning stages of linking theory and data are strongly encouraged to apply. For more information, click here.
