The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) and Department of Biochemistry & Cellular and Molecular Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, are currently accepting applications for a three-year postdoctoral fellowship in computational biology with an interest in using systems approaches to understand complex biological processes in cell biology, cancer biology, immunology or developmental biology.
An applicant may propose to use modeling, simulation, or analysis to produce useful biological information or concepts that current theories cannot provide. The proposed study should address biological problems involving dynamics and complexity of gene regulatory networks (GRNs) and/or the interplay between the GRNs and networks at the cellular level. While the applicant must propose an independent research project as part of the application, he/she will be expected to work closely with Dr. Tian Hong in UT's Department of Biochemistry & Cellular and Molecular Biology.
Examples of the biological topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Examples of computational methods of interest include, but are not limited to:
Annual stipend of $51,000 and full University of Tennessee employee fringe benefits. Year 1 support will come from NIMBioS and includes a $3000 travel budget. Support for Years 2 and 3, assuming satisfactory performance, will come from the Department of Biochemistry & Cellular and Molecular Biology and Dr. Tian Hong.
