  • Newly funded interdisciplinary mathematics postdoctoral positions for 2018-2019
    Location:
    GT, ORNL, Tulane, USF, UF, Clemson
    Description:

    SMCB invites applications for up to seven new postdoctoral scholar positions to begin either August 2018 or January 2019.  

    Requirements include a PhD (or its equivalent) in mathematics, statistics, computer science, physics or other closely related field.  Applications from recent PhDs (within three years of the start of the appointment) will receive priority review.

    Prior interdisciplinary experience is not required; excellent candidates looking to broaden their field of interest are strongly encouraged to apply.  The cover letter must clearly communicate interest in an interdisciplinary postdoctoral position and list one, or more, specific Seed Projects of interest.

    Note that SCMB’s emphasis on fostering new applications of foundational mathematics, i.e. algebra, geometry, and topology, is balanced by expertise in more applied areas like combinatorics, stochastics, and computation.

    See our Mathjobs.Org posting for more information and to submit an application.


  • Newly funded experimental biosystems graduate research positions for 2018-2019
    Location:
    GT
    Description:

    SCMB will build capacity at the math-bio interface through the interdisciplinary training of biosystems PhD students.  The goal is to enhance the students' ability to understand and apply mathematics in their research, as well as to increase their appreciation for, and skills in, theoretical modeling and computational data analysis.

    Georgia Tech biosystems graduate students will be recruited by individual SCMB Seed Project faculty from the PhD programs in the Schools of Biological Sciences, Biomedical EngineeringChemical & Biomolecular Engineering​Chemistry & Biochemistry, and Physics, as well as from the three different interdisciplinary PhD programs of Bioengineering, Bioinformatics, and Quantitative Biosciences

    Note that SMCB-funded students will need to take one more math course beyond the requirements of their specific PhD program.
