International PhD Programme in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology
The consortium of the Bioinformatics Integration Network is organizing an international PhD programme
courses will be common throughout the network and the candidates will be supervised by two PIs (supervisor and co-supervisor). We intend to include additional members from other EU countries in the doctorate committee in order to meet the requirements for the "European Doctorate" - a non-profit making Association which aims to "promote degrees in Biotechnology at the Masters and Doctoral levels".
The requirements for the European Doctorate are as follows:
Also an "Outstanding Scholar" program will be established to identify new bioinformaticians who have demonstrated research excellence. The program aims to rotate the students for three months in one of the participating labs or in the labs of our international collaborators in order to get exposure to other bioinformatics techniques.
Out of 70 candidates 8 were selected and received fellowships starting March 1st, 2006. "
