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.
