PhD students apply now to MedBioInfo Graduate School


Current and prospective 1st year PhD students in Bioinformatics are invited to apply to MedBioInfo, the National Graduate School in Medical Bioinformatics. Apply no later than 28 February 2019.

MedBioInfo courses are specialised, varied and short, typically 1 week in residence, with substantive pre- and/or post-course assignments. Courses are offered 2-3 times per year, totalling about 30 HP over the course of 3 years. You will be matched with a faculty mentor. We also have an annual meeting where you will attend faculty talks and soft-skills workshops, present your research, network, and get feedback. You will be granted a yearly travel budget. Best of all, this should be fun.

You are eligible to apply if you will begin your PhD between January 2018 and April 2019 – though there is some flexibility in this. Target groups include PhD students in Life Science doing primarily computational research. MedBioInfos 41 affiliated faculty members include most of the leading bioinformaticians in Sweden, we also draw on the faculty of NORBIS, our Norwegian sister school. Alongside your peers, this will form a key part of your future scientific network.

Apply here no later than February 28, 2019. Enrollment is limited to approximately 20 incoming students per year. By applying you agree to set aside 8-10 May 2019 to attend our Annual Meeting at Varbergs Kusthotell. Your first course is tentatively scheduled for 27-31 May 2019.
