*Call for Postdoctoral Fellowship Applications at NIMBioS -- Next
Deadline: December 11, 2012*

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 $2,000.

*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/
<http://www.nimbios.org/postdocs/postdoc.html>*

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 summer/fall 2013 is *December 11,
2012.*  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, the
U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture with additional support from The University of Tennessee,
Knoxville.
