Newly funded interdisciplinary mathematics postdoctoral positions for 2018-2019

Location: GT, ORNL, Tulane, USF, UF, Clemson

Description

SMCBinvites applications for up to seven newpostdoctoral scholar positionsto begin either August 2018 or January 2019.

Requirements include aPhD (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.

NotethatSCMB’semphasis onfostering 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 ourMathjobs.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 goalis to enhance the students' ability to understand and apply mathematics in theirresearch, as well as to increase their appreciation for, and skills in, theoretical modeling and computational data analysis.

Georgia Tech biosystems graduatestudents will be recruited by individual SCMB Seed Project facultyfrom thePhD programs in the Schools of Biological Sciences, Biomedical Engineering,Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering​,Chemistry & Biochemistry, andPhysics, as well as fromthe three different interdisciplinary PhD programs of Bioengineering, Bioinformatics, and Quantitative Biosciences.

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