We are currently advertising for prospective students for the prestigious Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Structured PhD Programme based primarily in University College Dublin, Ireland, with some positions in National University of Ireland Galway and Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

The project areas span systems biology, regulation of gene expression, genetic polymorphism, analysis of proteomic, transcriptomic, metabolomic, glycomic data, protein structural modeling and drug discovery with funding provided for 11-15 PhD positions, for students with a strong interest in interdisciplinary training.

Applications are invited from students with backgrounds in various disciplines, particularly with experience of modeling (e.g. statistics, mathematics, computer science, chemical engineering, and physics) and the biological life sciences.

Students will receive a 4-year tax-free stipend of €18,000 p.a., fees, a generous allowance for PC/laptop purchase, and annual budgets for laboratory consumables, conferences and publications. Projects will focus predominantly on computational aspects of biomedicine, but will also involve wet lab experience and a temporary international placement. The programme thus offers education in a wide range of skills, from laboratory to mathematical and computational, as well as international work experience.

The closing date for receipt of completed applications is the 31st March 2010. Programme details and application form available at: For further inquiries contact Bronagh:
