New postdoc application deadline fast approaching

Postdocs working hard, having fun at NIMBioS.

The next deadline for applications for postdoctoral scholarship at NIMBioS is barely more than a month away: December 11, 2011. Highest priority will be given to applicants with explicit plans to develop their ability to effectively carry on research at the interface of mathematics and biology. 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. NIMBioS Postdoctoral Fellows are chosen based upon indications that the applicant’s research plans are consistent with the mission of NIMBioS, the applicant has the demonstrated ability to carry out the proposed research, and the opportunities provided through NIMBioS will enhance the capacity for the research to be completed in an efficient and timely manner. An annual stipend of $51,000, full University of Tennessee employee fringe benefits, and an annual travel allowance of $2,000 are provided. To apply, complete the online application and submit a brief project description, references, and CV following the application guidelines.  NIMBioS postdoctoral requests for support are reviewed three times per year: March 1, September 1 and December 11. Selected researchers are offered positions at NIMBioS where they conduct research that is mostly self-directed. Note: All letters of recommendation should be submitted before the request deadline.
