The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for the Research Collaboration
Workshop for Women in Mathematical Biology, to be held June 22-25, 2015,
at NIMBioS.

*Objectives: *This collaborative workshop aims to help build a strong
collaboration network of women working on problems in mathematical
biology, by facilitating the formation of new collaborative research
groups and encouraging them to continue to work together after the
workshop. Junior women (tenure track faculty, post-docs and advanced
graduate students) in biology, mathematics and related fields are
encouraged to apply. The format of this workshop is designed to maximize
the opportunities to collaborate:

  * There will be four teams. Each team will be led by two senior women
    researchers and will work collaboratively on a specific project.
  * Team members will be chosen from applicants and will consist of
    junior researchers from both mathematics and biology.
  * Team members can express their project preference in their application
  * Each team will work intensely and present their findings at the end
    of the workshop.
  * Each team is expected to continue their research and obtain results
    for a joint publication.

*Projects*: Aerodynamics of spider ballooning; sleep, circadian rhythms
and pain; blood flow autoregulation in the kidney; and modeling the
effects of antimicrobial therapy on gut microbiota and /Clostridium

*Location: *NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

*Co-Organizer: *Anita Layton, Mathematics, Duke Univ.

For more information about the workshop and a link to the online
application form, go to http://www.nimbios.org/education/WS_wwmb.html

Participation in the workshop is by application only; 3-4 participants
will be selected for each team. Successful applicants will be notified
within two weeks of the application deadline. If needed, financial
support for travel, meals, and lodging is available for workshop attendees.

*Application deadline:* March 1, 2015

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS) (http://www.nimbios.org) brings together researchers from
around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to
investigate solutions to basic and applied problems in the life
sciences. NIMBioS is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, with
additional support from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
