*Call for Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications at NIMBioS -- Next 
Deadline: September 1, 2015*

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. Support: 
annual stipend of $51,000, full University of Tennessee employee fringe 
benefits, and an annual travel allowance of $3,000.

*How to apply: *Complete the online application and submit a brief 
project description, references, and CV following the guidelines 
available at http://www.nimbios.org/postdocs/ 

Deadline:*  NIMBioS postdoctoral requests for support are reviewed two 
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 summer/fall 2016 is *September 1, 
2015* but applications for positions starting later in 2016 are also 
accepted at this time. *All letters of recommendation must be submitted* 
*before the request deadline*.

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.
