Applications are currently being solicited for apost-doctoral research associate in the area of mathematical modeling of biologicalsystems in the Fefferman Lab at the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.
The work will involve mathematical modeling, focusinginitially on analysis and simulations of difference and differential equation modelsof physiological processes. An ideal candidate would have some experience in atleast one relevant area of applied bio-mathematical research. Beyond theinitial project, this position will entail collaborating to design newmathematical models for a diversity of novel applications. Any candidate shouldbe comfortable with a variety of modeling techniques and willing to learn newareas of modeling application in collaboration with interdisciplinary researchteams.
The researcher will be expected to help formulatemathematical models, characterize analytic properties of the systems, implementnumerical simulations, take a primary role in preparing manuscripts for publication,contribute to a collaborative research group environment, and participate inpreparation of new grant proposals.
