To all current and prospective 1st year PhD students in Bioinformatics,

You are invited to apply to MedBioInfo, the National Graduate School in Medical Bioinformatics, established to provide advanced training in bioinformatics to the next generation of world-class life-science researchers.  Our 41 affiliated faculty members include most of the leading bioinformaticians in Sweden, and 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. Our courses are short (typically 1 week in residence, with substantive pre- and/or post-course assignments), and offered 2-3 times per year, totalling about 30 HP over the course of 3 years. The courses are more specialised and varied than can be provided by your home university. You will be matched with a faculty mentor, providing a perspective and advice complementary to that of your advisor. 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 began or 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.

By applying, you agree to set aside 8-10 May to attend our Annual Meeting (at Varbergs Kusthotell near Göteborg). Your first course is tentatively 
scheduled for 27-31 May 2019.

The deadline is February 28, 2019. Enrollment is limited to approximately 20 incoming students per year. You can apply on Feel free to email me with any questions. We look forward to reading your application.
