Subject: Mentoring Program at the 2004 SMB Meeting




The Society for Mathematical Biology recognizes the importance of mentoring

in the development of a successful career in mathematical biology.  Following

the successful mentoring program at previous annual meetings, we are again

offering a mentoring program for the benefit of junior scientists attending

the 2004 Annual Meeting of the Society for Mathematical Biology, to be held

at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, July 25-28, 2004.  The

goal of this program is two-fold:

   - to optimize the educational and professional experience of mentees

     attending the conference;

   - to assist the mentees' socialization into the field of mathematical


How does it work?

Anyone attending the annual meeting can sign up, either as a mentee, a

mentor, or both.  Junior scientists can request to be matched with a senior

scientist. Junior scientists include students (both undergraduate and

graduate), postdoctoral fellows, research assistants, newly appointed faculty

members, etc.  Senior scientists include postdoctoral fellows, research

assistants, faculty members, etc.  Because of the overlap in our definitions

of junior and senior scientists, some individuals may sign up both as a

mentee and a mentor.

If you would like to participate, contact the coordinator of the mentoring

program (see below).  The coordinator will find suitable matches, based on

research interests and/or special requests.

How do I sign up?

Please contact the coordinator of the mentoring program by June 1, 2004:

Subject: Master Class 2004/2005 Stochastics in Molecular Biology and Genetics

Master Class 2004/2005,

"Stochastics in Molecular Biology and Genetics",

Mathematical Research Institute, the Netherlands

The Master Classes occupy an important place in the programme of studies

offered by the nation-wide Mathematical Research Institute (MRI) in The Netherlands. These activities are open to

anyone in his/her final year of  undergraduate studies in mathematics,

theoretical physics, or a related field with a comparable mathematical

background, as well as to graduate students.

In the one-year-long Master Class, some topic in contemporary mathematics is

studied intensively and in depth. In 2004/2005, this topic will be

"Stochastics in Molecular Biology and Genetics", for details see

The Master Class programme runs from September through June and includes two

full days of lectures and seminars per week and individual work on a test

problem.  Students who successfully complete the courses of the Master Class

will be awarded a Master Class certificate.  In general, a Master Class may

form a substantial preparation for a PhD programme in The Netherlands or

elsewhere, possibly even contributing to one.

Subject: Link to video - Nonlinear dynamics and chaos: Lab demonstrations

A video, Nonlinear dynamics and chaos: Lab demonstrations, is now online

and publicly accessible at:

It's a video I made some years ago with the help of several colleagues.  It's

intended for use as a supplement in courses on nonlinear dynamics, to show

students some real phenomena in the lab, and to save teachers the bother of

having to set up these demos for themselves.

or pick and choose as you like.  Chapter titles are: obtaining and

negotiating a faculty position and planning for tenure; the scientific

investigator within the university structure; defining and implementing your

mission; staffing your laboratory; mentoring and being mentored; time

management; project management; data management and laboratory notebooks;

getting funded; getting published and increasing your visibility;

understanding technology transfer; setting up collaborations; and course in

Subject: Postdoc, Computational Neuroscience - Neuronal Network Modeling

POSTDOC M/F (Computational Neuroscience)

Netherlands Institute for Brain Research, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Research in the workgroup Neurons & Networks of the Netherlands Institute for

Brain Research (NIBR) is focused on plasticity and information processing in

cortical neuronal networks. Experimental and computational approaches are


The workgroup participates in the research project Computational Analysis of

Spatiotemporal Patterns of Activity in Neuronal Networks (CASPAN), a project

supported by the NWO Program Computational Life Sciences. Within the CASPAN

research team there is a vacancy for a 3-year Postdoc position.

Project description:

The project aims at describing and understanding the patterns of activity of

nerve cells synaptically connected in neuronal networks. The project builds

on recent developments in experimental techniques within the participating

research groups for simultaneously recording neuronal activity from a large

number of neurons in the network (e.g. in cortical brain slices and cultured

neuronal networks). To be able to analyze and interpret the flood of data

these new techniques produce, we intend to develop (i) mathematical and

statistical methods for analyzing spatiotemporal patterns of neuronal

activity, and (ii) computational models of neuronal networks to simulate

these patterns and understand them in relation to structural and functional

connectivity within the network. The methods and models will be validated

with the extensive data we have on spatiotemporal patterns in cortical brain

slices and cultured neuronal networks.

The CASPAN project builds on a close collaboration between the Neurons &

Networks research group at the NIBR, the Experimental Neurophysiology

Research Group at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, and the Statistics

Research Group of the Institute for Mathematics at the Vrije Universiteit.

The three subprojects carried out by these groups concentrate on (a)

macroscopic neural network models, (b) detailed cortical microcircuit models,

and (c) statistical methods for analyzing spatiotemporal activity patterns,


Postdoc job description for subproject (a):

Development of a large scale neuronal network model with realistic functional

and structural connectivity to simulate neuronal activity in cortical brain

slices and cultured neuronal networks. The research includes (1) the

development of a stochastic model for generating network structure,

replicating the neuronal composition and connectivity in cortical brain

slices and in cultured neuronal networks; (2) modeling studies of the

neuronal activity and spatiotemporal patterns of activity within these model

networks, and (3) validation and comparison with the experimental data from

cortical brain slices and cultured neuronal networks.


Ideally, the candidate should have a PhD in computational neuroscience.

Proven experience in computer programming and in modeling activity in

neuronal networks, for example with the computer package NEURON, is


Job conditions:

programme, the department is also very active in research. The research areas

includes computational biology and computer aided drug, nonlinear dynamics,

complex systems, and computational finance, computational condensed matter

physics and statistical physics, computational quantum chemistry, reaction

dynamics and molecular modeling, computational fluid dynamics, general

numerical methods and computational mathematics.

The Department and the University provide strong research support with some

of the most extensive and modern facilities available, such as an IBM PowerPC

computer cluster.

We especially want to attract applicants doing research in Computational

Biology and Bioinformatics, although we will consider applications in any of

the above areas. Successful candidates are expected to teach undergraduate

and graduate courses, supervise master and doctoral students, establish

strong research programmes that generate external funding and intellectual

output, and perform some amount of administrative work. Besides appointments

on normal 3-year contracts, visiting appointments for one or two years may

also be considered. Salary would be commensurate with qualifications and

ample benefits will be provided.

Outstanding individuals with strong commitment to teaching and research are

encouraged to send their applications supported by a curriculum vita,

research plan, and three letters of recommendations to:
