We are looking to hire two postdocs as part of an NSF-funded Research Training Group (RTG) in the mathematical sciences at North Carolina State University. Our program, titled "Parameter Estimation for Mechanistic Biological Models", focuses on mathematical modeling of biological systems and challenges that arise in confronting these models with real-world data. Mathematical and statistical questions of particular interest include parameter estimation, uncertainty quantification and experimental design. Biological emphases are broad and are not limited to any particular system or scale of organization, although current group members focus mostly on physiology (e.g. cardiovascular dynamics and tissue dynamics) and population biology (e.g. ecology, epidemiology, evolution and within-host dynamics).

Our RTG involves a number of projects, each of which involve vertically-integrated teams of faculty, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students. Each postdoc will have a primary advisor drawn from the RTG faculty, but will be expected to work with more than one of these groups and contribute to mentoring group members. Active participation in RTG activities, such as a seminar series and workshops, is expected. RTG postdocs will teach one course per semester for the mathematics department.

The appointments are for two years, conditional on satisfactory progress and availability of funds. All applicants must be US citizens, nationals or permanent residents, and either hold a PhD in the mathematical sciences (or in a related discipline) or be a graduate student who will complete such a PhD before taking up the position. Through the mathjobs system, applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, research statement, publication list and arrange to have three letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf. Appointments will start in August 2018, although a January 2018 start date may be possible. We will begin considering applications immediately and will continue to review applications until both positions are filled.

See http://rtg.math.ncsu.edu for more details about our RTG and for further details of these positions. Inquiries may also be directed to Alun Lloyd (RTG Director): alun_lloyd@ncsu.edu

Please note that NSF regulations restrict funding to citizens, nationals, or permanent residents ("green card" holders) of the United States or its territories and possessions.
