Requests for NIMBioS support for Working Groups, Investigative Workshops, and Sabbatical Fellows are considered two times per year, with deadlines on March 1 and September 1. The upcoming deadline will be September 1, 2013 for activities beginning in Spring 2014. Applications for Short-term Visits are considered four times per year, with deadlines on March 1, June 1, September 1, and December 1.
All areas of research at the interface of
biology and mathematics will be considered, but we are especially
interested in activities expanding beyond the areas of research
supported to date. Potential organizers of activities in areas of
molecular biology, cell biology, network biology, immunology and systems
biology are particularly encouraged to submit requests for support of
Working Groups or Investigative Workshops.
NIMBioS considers applications for postdoctoral scholarship two times per year, with deadlines on September 1 and December 11.
We are particularly interested in requests to support research that integrates diverse fields, requires synthesis at multiple scales, and/or makes use of or requires development of new mathematical/ computational approaches. Complete the online application and submit a brief project description, references, and CV following the guidelines available at
NIMBioS is now accepting applications from math and biology/science teachers for the Teacher Collaboration Program, which provides links between teachers, scientists, and educators with an interest in making connections between mathematics and biology. NIMBioS will pair teachers with an interest in mathematics and biology with active researchers in the math biology community. For more information about the program and how to apply click here.
Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 (MPE2013) is an initiative of mathematical sciences organizations around the world designed to showcase the ways in which the mathematical sciences can be useful in tackling our world's problems. This initiative has led to plans for many events to take place in 2013, including workshops, public lectures, art exhibits, an international open source competition and many other activities at institutes around the world. NIMBioS is a partner organization of MPE2013. Click here to view MPE2013-related activities at NIMBioS.
