Postdoctoral Fellowship in Spatial Modeling at NIMBioS

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS), located at the Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville, is currently accepting applications for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in spatial modeling with an interest in GIS, remote sensing, large spatial datasets and spatial analysis.

An applicant may propose to make advances on conceptual or methodological problems related to spatial modeling or to the application of spatial analyses to advance management of the environment and natural resources or of human or environmental health and diseases. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Developing new tools for handling and analyzing Big Data (e.g., NEON)
  • Spatial, landscape explicit transmission of diseases
  • Linking fine scale and large scale ecological processes
  • Physiology trait mapping and links with climatic changes or extreme weather events
  • Spatial modeling of biodiversity and ecosystem services

Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of this position, candidates with a PhD or equivalent in biology, mathematics, statistics, computer science, geography, environmental science, epidemiology, civil or environmental engineering, or any other relevant field will be considered.

Support: annual stipend of $51,000, full University of Tennessee employee fringe benefits, and an annual travel allowance of $3,000.

Deadline: The deadline is December 18, 2016, for fellowship research beginning late spring 2017. All letters of recommendation must be submitted before the request deadline.

How to apply: Follow the guidelines at http://www.nimbios.org/postdocs/.
