Opportunities: Bioinformatics and Computational Biomedicine PhD Programme UCD, Ireland
Submitted by Yvonne Barry; posted on Wednesday, March 19, 2008
PhD Programme in Bioinformatics and Computational Biomedicine

PhD positions available for October 2008
We are now accepting applications for PhD positions under the graduate education programme (GREP) of the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET). The closing date for applications is 15 April 2008. More...

What is Bioinformatics?
Bioinformatics is the organisation and analysis of biological data, particularly of large datasets drawn from genome, proteome, transcriptome or metabolome wide analyses. Computational Biomedicine refers to the application of Computational Sciences to biomedical problems. More...

Course Aims
The aim of this PhD programme is to give students a strong interdisciplinary training, with both numerate (e.g. mathematics, statistics) and biological (e.g. experimental laboratory work) research experience, and joint supervision from different disciplines. More...

Where Is It?
The programme is centred on a single site, the Belfield campus of University College Dublin, at two main locations, the UCD Conway Institute and UCD-CASL. More...

Who Is It For?
Who is it for? The programme will suit students with a strong background in an applied numerate discipline (e.g. applied mathematics, engineering) as well as students with training in biology, statistics, computer science, medicine or chemistry. More...

Who Are We?
Who are the supervisors? Experimental biologists (mainly at the Conway Institute) and researchers specialising in bioinformatics, with backgrounds in computer science, biology, statistics, engineering and mathematics. More...

What projects and project areas are available? There will be both collaborative projects between experimental ('wet') and computational ('dry') supervisors where the student will have exposure to both, and other projects primarily focussed on computational analysis.

A PhD comprises at least 270 credits for a three-year programme. Between 240 and 270 of these credits must be earned through original research. The remaining credits, up to a maximum of 90 credits, can be made up of various taught academic, research skills and transferable skills modules which students take depending on their needs, interests and programme requirements.
