*Call for Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications at NIMBioS*

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis
(NIMBioS), located at the Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville, is currently
accepting applications for postdoctoral scholarship at the interface
between mathematics and biology. Highest priority will be given to those
with explicit plans to develop their ability to effectively carry on
research across these fields. 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. For
additional information on NIMBioS, visit www.nimbios.org.  Support:
annual stipend of $51,000, full University of Tennessee employee fringe
benefits, and an annual travel allowance of $2,000.  Requests for
Support: Submit a brief project description, references, and CV
following the guidelines available at http://www.nimbios.org/postdocs/
<http://www.nimbios.org/postdocs/postdoc.html>to Dr. Chris Welsh at
cwelsh from utk.edu.  *Deadline:*  NIMBioS postdoctoral requests for support
are reviewed three times per year, and the selected researchers are
offered positions at NIMBioS where they conduct research that is mostly
self-directed. The deadline for activities beginning in early 2012 is
*Sept. 1, 2011.*  All letters of recommendation should be submitted
*before the request deadline*.
