This position has a similar career progression to someone who enters as a tenure-track assistant professor. Faculty appointed as LPSOE are Academic Senate members whose expertise and responsibilities center on undergraduate education and scholarly analysis and improvement of teaching methods.

A successful candidate will be expected to provide leadership in innovative and inclusive teaching in the Life Science Quantitative Biology Curriculum. The appointee will be assigned not more than a total of four lower division undergraduate courses per three-quarter academic year. Their primary teaching responsibility will include our new introductory mathematics series for first-year life science majors, Mathematics for Life Scientists, based on the text Modeling Life (https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319597300).
These courses teach calculus and linear algebra with a focus on developing and analyzing models of nonlinear dynamical systems in ecology, biology, physiology, epidemiology and other subjects in the Life Sciences.

The LPSOE will work with other faculty and the campus Center for Education Innovation and Learning in the Sciences to develop, implement, assess, and publish findings for new pedagogical initiatives. The appointee will also be expected to demonstrate continued professional growth that enhances their value to the University.
Contributions and achievements supporting professional growth include:
(i) acquisition of intramural and/or extramural funds to support educational initiatives,
(ii) curriculum innovation to promote the retention of diverse students in Life Sciences,
(iii) academic leadership within the University beyond normal service obligations, and
(iv) involvement in professional organizations.

Qualified applicants must have a Ph.D. in a Mathematical discipline (e.g., Mathematics, Biomathematics) or a Ph.D. in a Life Science discipline, with background in mathematical modeling.
Candidates must have experience in teaching undergraduates and the ability to teach calculus and linear algebra in UCLA's Quantitative Biology Curriculum.

Salary will be commensurate with education and experience and based on University of California pay scales.

To Apply:
Candidates should submit a cover letter expressing their interest in the position, a curriculum vitae, a two-page teaching statement summarizing experience in undergraduate teaching at the university level that includes a description of pedagogical approaches used, a statement of previous research with an emphasis in Quantitative Biology, and a statement summarizing past or potential contributions to diversity, as well as the names and contact information for three professional references online to:

Review of applications will begin on Apr 30 and continue until the position is filled.

If available, candidates also should submit links to documentation of teaching excellence such as instructional or assessment materials developed by the candidate, summaries of student ratings of instruction, reports based on peer classroom observations, instructional video segments from previous courses taught, and any other materials candidates feel would assist the search committee with an evaluation of their application.

Questions regarding the position should be sent to the chair of the search committee, Beth Lazazzera (bethl@microbio.ucla.edu).

Research Position at Mathematical Institute of Leiden University, NL

The Faculty of Science and the Mathematical Institute of Leiden University invite applications for a four-year

PhD Student on Mathematical Modeling of Cell-ECM Interactions During Angiogenesis (1.0 FTE)

Project description
The opening is for a research position, within the field of mathematical or theoretical biology, computational physics, applied mathematics or computational science.

The outgrowth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels, called angiogenesis, is a crucial step in wound healing and tumor growth. Cell-based simulation models help to analyze how cells assemble into blood vessels and other tissue structures. Recently our group has developed novel techniques for modeling one of the key controlling factors of angiogenesis, the extracellular matrix (ECM). The ECM is a diverse class of jelly or hard materials providing structural support to the tissue and that acts as a medium for cell-cell communication.

The work will be embedded in the Multiscale Mathematical Biology team at the Mathematical Institute and the Institute of Biology Leiden. The team carries out mathematical biology research in close collaboration with experimental researchers. The team focuses on modelling pattern formation and morphogenesis in multicellular organisms and bacterial ecosystems.

Key responsibilities
The project will be part of an NWO-funded Vici-project that will unravel how the extracellular matrix (ECM) coordinates the interactions between endothelial cells and other cells contributing to angiogenesis, and how modifications of the ECM, as they can occur for example near tumors, can modify the structure of new blood vessel networks. In this project you will work closely together with experimental researchers, that will test the mathematical models in the wetlab by imaging of cell cultures and zebrafish experiments. Your task will be to develop novel mathematical models, which will be informed by literature data and the insights coming from the wetlab. Your models will be experimentally validated by your direct colleagues in the wetlab, based on which you will correct and update your models. Based on cycles of iterative model refinement and experimental validation, you will unravel aspects of angiogenic sprouting, and prepare your insights for publication in the biological, biophysical, and/or biomathematical literature.

The mathematical models will be based on hybrid cellular Potts model, in which stochastic models of cell motility interact with continuum and discrete models of the ECM. You will contribute to the development of novel and efficient numerical methods for simulating the biomechanics of the ECM, that will interface naturally with pre-existing, stochastic models of endothelial cell behavior. You will integrate the novel methodology into our lab's modeling framework Tissue Simulation Toolkit, and prepare the new developments for public release alongside our scientific publications.

Selection criteria
Master's degree in applied mathematics, computational/theoretical physics, theoretical biology, computer science or a related discipline
Excellent written and oral proficiency in English
Ability to work independently in a multidisciplinary environment
Fluent interdisciplinary communication skills with scientists in cell biology and mathematics
Keen interest in cell and developmental biology
Experience in (numerical) mathematical modeling (e.g., Cellular Potts modeling, particle-based simulations, PDEs, FBA)
Excellent programming skills in C++.
