Subject: Submit bioRxiv to BMB
bioRxiv preprints can now be submitted directly to the Bulletin of
The Society for Mathematical Biology is happy to announce that authors
of manuscripts posted on the preprint server bioRxiv
(www.biorxiv.org/) can now submit their papers directly to the
Bulletin of Mathematical Biology (BMB).
The BMB has always welcomed manuscripts posted on bioRxiv, and we are
now delighted to offer submission of bioRxiv preprints to the BMB.
bioRxiv can save authors time in submitting papers to the BMB by
transmitting their manuscript files and metadata directly from
The Society for Mathematical Biology partnership with bioRxiv/Cold
Spring Harbor Laboratory emphasizes our commitment to rapid open
dissemination of scientific research.

Subject: PhD: Cognitive Neuroscience at SISSA, Trieste, Italy
Up to 5 PhD fellowships in Cognitive Neuroscience at SISSA, Trieste, Italy.
SISSA is an elite postgraduate research institution, focused on Maths,
Physics and Neuroscience. It operates in English: many among its students
and faculty are not Italian. Campus above Trieste, overlooking the Gulf.
Research approaches in the CNS PhD phdcns.sissa.it/ span the range
from cognitive psychology and imaging in humans to behavioral neuroscience
and multiple single-unit recording in rats, mathematical and computational
modeling; with research groups led by Domenica Bueti, Davide Crepaldi,
Mathew Diamond, Chris Mathys, Raffaella Rumiati, Alessandro Treves and
Davide Zoccolan. Allied approaches are pursued in other SISSA PhDs.
All admitted students receive a 4-year fellowship and engage full-time in
research based in Trieste, with limited coursework in the first few months,
talks and seminars throughout the year and a TEX event in the summer, see: TEX
Admission exam Sept 13-4, 2018; Deadline for applications: Aug 31, 2018.

Postdoctoral Position in Computational Modeling of Immuno-Oncology
Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Oncology
Johns Hopkins University
•Seeking an independent and motivated Postdoctoral Researcher in Dr.
Popel’s laboratory in the Departments of Biomedical Engineering and
Oncology, The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
•The successful candidate will join a team that combines
computational, experimental and clinical researchers using
computational systems biology and systems pharmacology to discover
mechanisms of immuno-oncology and immunotherapies.

Subject: NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP)
We hope you will take the opportunity to announce the NSF Graduate
Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Interested students should begin
at the applicant information page www.nsfgrfp.org . The GRFP supports
outstanding graduate students in NSF-supported science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics disciplines who are pursuing
research-based Master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited United
States institutions. The program provides up to three years of
graduate education support, including an annual $34,000 stipend.
Applications for Mathematical Sciences topics are due October 26,
The GRFP also needs qualified faculty reviewers. Review panels are
conducted by video conference. Please see the panelist information
page (www.nsfgrfp.org/panelist_info) and consider volunteering to
serve as a panelist by registering at nsfgrfp.org/panelists
