More Information

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 in systems biology, the experience you gain will prepare you to participate in cutting-edge science that integrates the two.
