Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowships at National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Since 2009, the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) has provided opportunities for postdoctoral scholarship at the interface between mathematics and the biological sciences.

Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowship in Species Distribution Modeling and Conservation

Applications are currently being accepted for a postdoctoral position in species distribution modeling and conservation at NIMBioS and in the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. This is a full- time, one year position.

The postdoctoral fellow will work with UT faculty (Paul Armsworth, Xingli Giam and Mona Papes) as part of an interdisciplinary team researching how to account for the combined effects of land use change and climate change when designing conservation strategies for the Appalachian region. The postdoc will help collate relevant data on current species distributions, future climate scenarios and other variables to estimate projected shifts in species distributions within the Appalachian region. The individual will work with others to integrate resulting biodiversity data with data from other project components focused on modeling land use change in optimization analyses intended to inform future land protection strategies. This work will provide the individual with experience of a range of interdisciplinary techniques and approaches relevant to conservation science.

The postdoc will join a community of postdoctoral scholars at NIMBioS and UT Knoxville's ecology program, one of the top 10 percent of ecology units in the U.S. UT- Knoxville is a vibrant campus located in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Within the U.S., the region is a hotspot for biodiversity and is projected to lie at the forefront of future efforts to conserve US species in a changing climate.

Applicants for the position should have a PhD in Biology, Ecology, Environmental Sciences, Geography or other relevant discipline, strong quantitative and computational skills, and proficiency in English. Experience with GIS and analysis of spatial ecological data are essential.

Review of applications will begin May 14, 2018 and continue until the position is filled. Ideal start date: September 1, 2018.

Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowship in Spatial Biology at National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Applications are currently being accepted for a targeted postdoctoral position in spatial biology in the Spatial Analysis Lab (SAL http://www.nimbios.org/SAL) at the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) in collaboration with the Department of Ecology & Evolutionary Biology (EEB) at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. This is a full- time, two-year position, with the potential for a limited-time-period renewal.

Since 2009, NIMBioS has provided opportunities for postdoctoral scholarship at the interface between mathematics and the biological sciences.
Targeted Postdoctoral Fellowships at NIMBioS provide support for specific research questions on projects directed by faculty at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The postdoctoral fellow will integrate remote sensing tools with publicly available data to answer interdisciplinary topics in Global Environmental Change (with possible foci in macroecology, physiology, and environmental sociology and economics). The fellow will be expected to participate in and contribute to NIMBioS activities. Technical remote sensing expertise is required, specifically experience in data-fusion techniques and in working with multiple types of remotely sensed data (multispectral + hyperspectral or multispectral + radar or multipectral + lidar, etc.). The most competitive candidates would have had experience collating, processing, and analyzing large datasets (e.g., biodiversity, physiology, climate, agriculture/land-use, economic trade) at the regional and/or global scale(s) and have published some of this work in leading peer- reviewed journals. The postdoctoral fellow will be mentored by Xingli Giam (EEB), Monica Papes (EEB and SAL), and Kimberly Sheldon (EEB).

Review of applications will begin 14 May 2018 and continue until the position is filled. Start date flexible, but not later than 31 August 2018.

PostDoc Position in Interdisciplinary Origins of Life Research at The Origins Center, The Netherlands

A postdoctoral fellow for multiscale/multilevel numerical challenges in interdisciplinary origins of life research(full time, two year).

The Origins Center, is a recent, multidisciplinary and multi-institute initiative of a large number of top tier scientists in the Netherlands, who responded to questions submitted by the public on fundamentals of life in the universe in the context of the Dutch National Science Agenda and who aim at game-changing understanding of the origin of life and of life-bearing planets, predicting evolution, building and steering life from molecule to biosphere, and finding extra-terrestrial life. A fifth area of research, linking all others, targets the challenges in mathematics, informatics, and computational science in bridging large spatial and temporal scales, and for understanding shifts in levels of organisation.

For the mathematical, informatics and computational science challenges we are now recruiting a postdoctoral research fellow with a strong background in mathematics, informatics or the computational sciences. The recruited fellow will, jointly with research groups in the Netherlands, define and execute a two-year research project that will be linked to the other projects in the Origins Center portfolio. She or he will thereby be centrally involved in advanced and multidisciplinary research of great scientific and public interest.
