/**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)

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.
