/**New!* Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowships at NIMBioS*/
Since 2009, the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological
Synthesis (NIMBioS) has provided opportunities for postdoctoral
scholarship at the interface between mathematics and the biological
sciences. /Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowships at NIMBioS/ provide support
for specific research questions on projects directed by faculty at the
University of Tennessee, Knoxville. NIMBioS announces two new Targeted
Postdoctoral Fellowships.
***Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Modeling of
Epidemiology and Evolutionary Game Theory**
*
Applications are currently being accepted for a postdoctoral position in
mathematical modeling of epidemiology and evolutionary game theory at
NIMBioS and in the Fefferman Lab at the University of Tennessee at
Knoxville. This is a full-time, one year position, with the potential
for renewal.
The work involves the mathematical modeling, including analysis and
simulations, of systems of differential equations and game theory. The
ideal candidate would have some experience in both areas of applied
bio-mathematical research. The researcher will be expected to help
formulate mathematical models, characterize analytic properties of the
systems, implement numerical simulations, take a primary role in
preparing manuscripts for publication, and contribute to the
collaborative research group environment.
Requirements:
Ph.D. in pertinent field, including but not limited to applied
mathematics, infectious disease epidemiology, or evolutionary biology
Research experience in applied mathematical modeling (epidemiology or
evolutionary biology fields preferred, but not required)
Basic understanding of analysis of differential equations
Basic understanding of game theory
Interest in infectious diseases and their evolution
Ability to write clearly and scientifically (e.g. to produce drafts of
papers for publication in scientific journals and web-based public
outreach without too much oversight); evidence of successful prior
publication is a plus
Ability to work/communicate with a multidisciplinary team
Fluency in a mathematical programming environment (preferably Matlab,
but Mathematica, R, Python, or equivalent are also acceptable)
Willingness to help with the preparation of additional grant proposals
The Fefferman Lab (http://feffermanlab.org/) is affiliated with the
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, the Department of
Mathematics, and the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological
Synthesis (NIMBioS) at the UT-Knoxville. The candidate will be welcome
to participate in any/all of these communities. This is a full-time, one
year position, with the potential for renewal.
Review of applications will begin 1 May 2018 and continue until the
position is filled. Ideal start date: July 1, 2018.

**Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Modeling of
Biological Systems**
*Applications are currently being accepted for a postdoctoral position
in mathematical modeling of biological systems at NIMBioS and in the
Fefferman Lab at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. This is a
full-time, one year position, with the potential for renewal.
The work involves mathematical modeling, focusing initially on analysis
and simulations of difference and differential equation models of
physiological processes. An ideal candidate would have some experience
in at least one relevant area of applied bio-mathematical research.
Beyond the initial project, this position will entail collaborating to
design new mathematical models for a diversity of novel applications.
Any candidate should be comfortable with a variety of modeling
techniques and willing to learn new areas of modeling application in
collaboration with interdisciplinary research teams. The researcher will
be expected to help formulate mathematical models, characterize analytic
properties of the systems, implement numerical simulations, take a
primary role in preparing manuscripts for publication, contribute to a
collaborative research group environment, and participate in preparation
of new grant proposals.
Requirements:
* Ph.D. in some pertinent field. Such fields could include, but are
not limited to applied mathematics, epidemiology, ecology,
evolutionary biology, physics, engineering, or computer science
* Research experience in applied mathematical modeling (epidemiology
or evolutionary biology are preferred, but not required)
* Familiarity with at least two of the following mathematical modeling
techniques: ODEs, PDEs, SDEs, Game Theory, Cellular Automata,
Network Theory, Decision Theory, and Agent Based Modeling
* Ability to write clearly and scientifically (e.g. to produce drafts
of papers for publication in scientific journals and web-based
public outreach without too much oversight); evidence of successful
prior publication is a plus
* Ability to work/communicate with a multidisciplinary team
* Fluency in a mathematical programming environment (preferably
Matlab, but Mathematica, R, Python, or equivalent are also acceptable)
The Fefferman Lab (http://feffermanlab.org/) is affiliated with the
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, the Department of
Mathematics, and the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological
Synthesis (NIMBioS) at the UT-Knoxville. The candidate will be welcome
to participate in any/all of these communities.
Review of applications will begin 1 May 2018 and continue until the
position is filled. Ideal start date: September 1, 2018.
