INFORMATION ABOUT GRADUATE PROGRAMS
UCI-MCSB UC Irvine - Graduate Programs in Mathematical, Computational and Systems Biology
An opportunity to apply to the graduate program in Mathematical, Computational and Systems Biology (MCSB) at UC Irvine.
We are looking for excellent students, with a variety of different backgrounds, who wish to work at the interface between the biological sciences, the physical sciences, computer sciences and engineering.
The graduate program in Mathematical, Computational and Systems Biology (MCSB) is designed to meet the interdisciplinary training challenges of modern biology and to function in concert with existing departmental programs (Departmental Option) or as an individually tailored program (Interdisciplinary Option) leading to an M.S. or Ph.D. degree.
The interdisciplinary degree option is new.
The degree program provides students with both opportunity for rigorous training towards research careers in areas related to systems biology and flexibility through individualized faculty counseling on curricular needs, and access to a diverse group of affiliated faculty and research projects from member departments.
Current member departments include Biomedical Engineering, Biological Chemistry, Computer Science, Developmental and Cell Biology, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Mathematics, Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Physics.
The program emphasizes in-depth classroom study, interdisciplinary research rotations, and individualized advising. The program is
administered by the Center for Complex Biological Systems, a National Institutes of Health National Center of Excellence in Systems Biology.
More information about the program, including how to apply, is available at mcsb.uci.edu.

University of Chicago - Discover UChicago Expenses-Paid Visit Program
The University of Chicago has a Discover UChicago program, an expenses-paid visit weekend for candidates traditionally underrepresented in their fields planning to apply to graduate school. This event combines workshops on applying to graduate school, individual meetings with faculty, and opportunities to connect with current UChicago students, as well as to explore the community and the city of Chicago.
Students interested in doctoral programs, as well as master's programs in the majority of the University of Chicago's schools and divisions can find a full list of participating programs, as well as application requirements and additional guidance, at http://grad.uchicago.edu/admissions/discover/. In particular, students from underrepresented backgrounds, first generation students, women in STEM fields, and undocumented students are invited to apply.

University of Washington School of Public Health, Dept. of Biostatistics - NEW Master of Science Biostatistics 18-Month Capstone
The Master of Science (MS) in Biostatistics Capstone combines graduate coursework in biostatistics with a capstone project in a streamlined 18-month format. The MS Capstone offers you a choice of specialty in the areas of data science, statistical genetics, or modeling and methods, and the opportunity to complete a career-advancing capstone project that will showcase your skills. As a student of the program, you will benefit from an innovative curriculum that provides a rigorous and applications-driven foundation in statistical theory and methods (the science of biostatistics) and biomedical data analysis (the practice of applying biostatistics).
