PhD and postdoctoral students in bioinformatics and computational genomics at Florida Atlantic University

Scholarship: Fully funded
Degree: PhD
Nationality: International Students
Location: USA
Application deadlines: Open until all positions are filled

Scholarship Description:

The main research interests of this (newly established) group include genomic data mining, bioinformatics software development and applications in disease research. The group has several research projects funded by the US federal government, foundations, state government, Canadian government, and Florida Atlantic University (FAU). The group is well funded and members can choose topics based on their individual interests and strengths. Due to the development needs, we are looking for full-awarded PhD students and postdocs in bioinformatics and computational genomics. The group has powerful computational resources (e.g., multiple high-capacity HPCs, storage space, etc.) and a large amount of case histology data (e.g., maximum ME/CFS patient multi-omics sequencing data). Group members have access to multifaceted research and career development opportunities. The new office environment is excellent and well-equipped. For more information about the group, please see the website:[ZW1]. We warmly welcome students with high ambitions to join us!
