The Laboratory of Biological Modeling offers recent doctoral recipients the opportunity to carry out interdiscplinary research in theoretical biology in close collaboration with experimentalists. Current foci include insulin secretion from pancreatic beta-cells, whole-body glucose homeostasis, and other topics related to diabetes and obesity. NIH postdoctoral fellowships support two or three years of intensive research without teaching or grant writing obligations. Backgrounds in mathematics, physics, computer science, engineering, chemistry, and other quantitative sciences are appropriate. The principle requirement is a demonstrated talent and interest in applying mathematics to solve important problems in biology.

DHHS and NIH are equal opportunity employers. The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply. Both U. S. and non-U. S. citizens are eligible. Applicants should have received a Ph. D. degree within the last five years.
