The Swedish National Graduate School in Medical Bioinformatics is 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 cancer and other important problems in medicine and health.
If you share our vision, and see that only by a combination of experimental and computational mehtods progress can be made, then the Swedish National Graduate 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 Graduate 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 in the Graduate School. The school is led on an executive basis by Samuel Coulbourn Flores (Studierektor), by Arne Elofsson (Director), and by two other coordinators 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 2018 and April 2019, but other students are also welcome to apply. Application deadline is Feb 28 2019. The program is limited to 20 students.
