in Systems and Computational Biology
Meet Our Students
Read profiles of our PhD students to learn about their experience and research.
The Columbia University Department of Systems Biology invites applications from students interested in pursuing careers at the frontiers of modern biology. You will learn to apply powerful, multidisciplinary approaches and address critical biological questions from the perspective of complex genomic and molecular systems.
PhD education at Columbia stresses the importance of high-throughput experimentation, quantitative analysis of large biological data sets, and innovative technology development. Whether your primary interest is in experimental or computational research, the experience you gain will prepare you to participate in cutting-edge research that integrates the two.
Applications for the academic year beginning in 2015 will open in September 2014.
