NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology, Northwestern University

Position ID: 2082-POSTDOC [#12233]
Position Title: Independent NSF-Simons Fellows in Quantitative Biology
Position Type: Postdoctoral
Position Location: Evanston, Illinois 60208, United States [map]
Subject Area: Interface of mathematical science and developmental biology
Application Deadline: 2018/09/30 (posted 2018/08/03, listed until 2019/08/02)
Position Description:    

The NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology at Northwestern University is a place where mathematical scientists and developmental biologists intensely work together on a broad range of questions arising from investigations into the dynamics of animal development. The NSF-Simons Fellows Program, which attracts early career scientists with diverse backgrounds and exceptional promise, is designed to enhance interaction and collaboration among participants in order to stimulate creative thinking and interdisciplinary science.

Funds will provide salary, research, and travel support for each fellow for three years. Fellows are expected to conduct independent research under the mentorship of the Center. If their work has an experimental component, it will be located in the labs of one of the Center faculty. Fellows participate in the vibrant intellectual life of the Center, including seminars, workshops, research meetings, symposia, and journal clubs.

We are looking to recruit mathematical scientists who are interested in sustained collaborations with experimentalists focusing on challenging problems in developmental biology. Applicants should have completed a PhD degree (or its equivalent), preferably in pure or applied mathematics, statistics, physics, or engineering. The degree must have been completed within the last 18 months or within 36 months of the start of the appointment. Prior interdisciplinary experience is not required. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged. Northwestern University is an equal opportunity employer.

To apply, please follows the instructions on the Center's website http://www.quantitativebiology.northwestern.edu/opportunities/nsf-simons-fellows-program/
