Call for Applications: Research Collaboration Workshop for Women in Mathematical Biology

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for the Research Collaboration Workshop for Women in Mathematical Biology, to be held June 22-25, 2015, at NIMBioS.

Objectives: This collaborative workshop aims to help build a strong collaboration network of women working on problems in mathematical biology, by facilitating the formation of new collaborative research groups and encouraging them to continue to work together after the workshop. Junior women (tenure track faculty, post-docs and advanced graduate students) in biology, mathematics and related fields are encouraged to apply. The format of this workshop is designed to maximize the opportunities to collaborate:

There will be four teams. Each team will be led by two senior women researchers and will work collaboratively on a specific project. Team members will be chosen from applicants and will consist of junior researchers from both mathematics and biology. Team members can express their project preference in their application Each team will work intensely and present their findings at the end of
the workshop.

Each team is expected to continue their research and obtain results for a joint publication.

Projects: Aerodynamics of spider ballooning; sleep, circadian rhythms and pain; blood flow autoregulation in the kidney; and modeling the effects of antimicrobial therapy on gut microbiota and Clostridium difficile

Location: NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Co-Organizer: Anita Layton, Mathematics, Duke Univ.

For more information about the workshop and a link to the online application form, go to http://www.nimbios.org/education/WS_wwmb.html

Participation in the workshop is by application only; 3-4 participants will be selected for each team. Successful applicants will be notified within two weeks of the application deadline. If needed, financial support for travel, meals, and lodging is available for workshop attendees.

Application deadline: March 1, 2015

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) (http://www.nimbios.org) brings together researchers from around the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to investigate solutions to basic and applied problems in the life sciences. NIMBioS is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, with additional support from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
