Overview: The Department of Engineering Sciences and Applied Mathematics 
solicits applications for postdoctoral fellowships in quantitative 
biological modeling.   Two positions are available starting September 1, 
2017 and a third position starting September 1, 2018.  These positions 
are part of a National Science Foundation Research Training Grant 

Duties: Postdoctoral fellows will conduct research on the quantitative 
modeling of biological systems and will teach three quarter courses per 
year in the department.  Each position will typically be for three 
years.  Postdoctoral fellows will additionally participate in 
RTG-related training and career development activities.

Environment: Postdoctoral fellows will be part of an interdisciplinary 
environment focusing
on current problems in experimental and computational biology. Fellows 
will gain experience from training in  mathematical modeling, numerical 
methods, and modern data analysis/statistical tools relevant to 
biological problems. Research internships outside of Northwestern will 
broaden fellows' perspectives.  Each fellow's research will be mentored 
by faculty from both applied mathematics and a biological discipline.  
Ongoing collaborations exist with faculty in Neurobiology, Molecular 
Biosciences, Environmental Engineering and Preventive Medicine, and 
additional areas of interest are welcome.   An overall goal of the 
program is to broaden computational biological modeling in the 
department and at Northwestern.

Requirements: Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. 
Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, three reference 
letters (one addressing teaching qualifications) and brief research and 
teaching statements online at the URL:


If desired, one or two representative publications may also be 
submitted.   Applications for the Fall 2017 position are currently being 
reviewed and will continue being considered until the position is filled.

Northwestern University is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action 
Employer of all protected
classes including veterans and individuals with disabilities. Women and 
minorities are encouraged
to apply.
