CSDMS Student Modeler Award 2016 Application

The Community Surface Dynamics Modeling System (CSDMS) promotes the modeling of earth surface processes by developing, and disseminating software modules that predict the movement of fluids, and the flux of sediment and solutes in landscapes and their sedimentary basins.

CSDMS invites graduate students from earth and computer sciences to compete for the annual “CSDMS Student Modeler Award.” If you have completed an outstanding research project in 2015, which involved developing an earth science model (terrestrial, coastal, marine or biogeochemistry), a modeling tool, or module linking technology, you can qualify for this award! Entries will be judged on the basis of ingenuity, applicability, and contribution toward the advancement of geoscience modeling by a panel of experts in the field. We’ll have a prize!  In addition, CSDMS will fund your visit to our annual meeting in Boulder, Colorado May 17-19 to learn all about the CSDMS.  You may possibly have a chance to work with CSDMS scientists to develop your model into a CSDMS component.

Please submit a one-page abstract highlighting your results, a digital copy of your thesis or research paper, and contact information for your supervisor to the CSDMS Facility: csdms@colorado.edu.

Deadline for application: January 10th, 2016

Recipient of this year’s award will be announced by the end of January 2016.

Postdoctoral Position in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine

A postdoctoral position is available at the University of California, San Francisco to study stem cells and regenerative mechanisms in epithelial organs. Our work employs mouse genetics, ex vivo culture systems and molecular genetic approaches to explore mechanisms governing organ development, aging, and regeneration. The role of the new position is to define the effects of aging and genotoxic injury on stem cell-mediated regeneration of epithelial organs using the salivary glands and exocrine pancreas as model systems. Although these studies are mostly performed in mice, we also utilize human tissue and the development of novel assays utilizing this important resource is a significant part of this project.

Candidates having a Ph.D. degree in a biological science/engineering, extensive research experience in stem cell biology, molecular biology or genetics, experience in techniques including FACS, ChIP and/or high resolution microscopy as well as excellent communication skills – written and verbal – should submit a C.V. and names of at least 2 references via email to: sarah.knox@ucsf.edu.
