The Swedish National Graduate School in Medical Bioinformatics

Here, we announce that the Swedish National Research School in Medical Bioinformatics and think this may interest you. We are now accepting applications, please forward this to potential students.
 The future of life science will be created by scientists that master advanced computational methods for dealing with big-data from high-throughput biotechnological methods, and study the most important medical problems, such as how to cure cancer and improve health.
If you share our vision, and see that only by a combination of experimental and computational metods progress can be made, then the Swedish National Research School in Medical Bioinformatics is for you. The school is aimed at PhD students who recently started (or will soon start) their PhD studies at a Swedish university and have interest in medical bioinformatics or related subjects.
The research school is backed by a large group of bioinformaticians from all the major universities in Sweden. These professors will teach a number of courses available for free for the students on the research school. The school will be jointly coordinated by four scientists working at SciLifeLab in Stockholm.
In addition to getting access to excellent courses, a student in the research school also becomes part of a valuable network of scientist. Besides developing experiences with other students in the school, you will network with the leading bioinformaticians in Sweden in a mentor program
For the first year we will primarily accept students who will start their PhD studies between Jan 2017 and April 2018, but other students are also welcome to apply. Application deadline is Feb 28 2018. The program is limited to 20 students.
