*** The account for Mathematical Sciences, New Jersey Institute of Technology has expired. ***

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the field of mathematical and computational biology. The position is initially for one year starting September 1, 2018, with the possibility of renewal of one additional year, subject to satisfactory performance. In addition to research duties, the candidate is expected to teach one course per academic year. Currently, research interests of the NJIT mathematical biology group are focused on mathematical and computational neuroscience, perception of timing and rhythm, cell physiology, circadian rhythms, cell calcium dynamics, and biofluids, emphasizing the applications of parameter estimation techniques, stochastic analysis and the theory of dynamical systems and partial differential equations to problems in mathematical biology.

Candidates should hold a PhD in applied mathematics or a related discipline. To apply, follow this link to submit a cover letter with a brief research statement, and a CV with names and email addresses of three references:

NJIT is in the University Heights neighborhood next to vibrant downtown Newark, about 12 miles west of New York City. The Department of Mathematical Sciences has close collaborative ties to the Department of Biological Sciences at NJIT. Excellent potential for outside collaboration is also afforded by the close geographic proximity of NJIT to other prominent centers for biological research such as the Center for Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience at Rutgers-Newark, New Jersey Medical School, NYU, Columbia University, and Rockefeller University.

NJIT is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer and strongly encourages women, minorities, and persons with disabilities to apply. At the university's discretion, the education and experience prerequisites may be excepted where the candidate can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the university, an equivalent combination of education and experience specifically preparing the candidate for success in the position
