Default A PhD Position in Bioinformatics Available at the University of South Dakota

One graduate student position starting from fall 2018 with research assistantship (around $24,000 annual stipend plus tuition remission) is available in the Department of Biology with a specializations in bioinformatics at the University of South Dakota (USD).

The research project is to develop computational pipelines/algorithms for metagenomics data analysis. The bioinformatics approaches developed help begin forging quantitative links between genetic, taxonomic, and functional aspects of microbial diversity and therefore benefit better understanding implications of microbial diversity and activities. The methods resulted from this research will be used to investigate the relationship between gut microbiota, human genetic variations and risk of diseases to develop novel screening tools.

Graduate students will be enrolled in the PhD program in biology with a specialization in bioinformatics. Recently, the South Dakota Board of Regents has approved this new bioinformatics academic program (http://news.sd.gov/newsitem.aspx?id=22115). Courses will focus on biology, as well as mathematics, statistics, and computer science, enabling doctoral students to collaborate on high-level research projects. Students enrolled will be trained in a multidisciplinary environment and has opportunity to collaborate with biologists and computer scientists. Specialization in bioinformatics within the biology PhD program will appear on a studentís transcript.

Candidates with background in either computer science or biology are encouraged to apply at http://www.usd.edu/arts-and-sciences/biology/graduate.
