Develop your career by training in Systems Biology
The Center for Complex Biological Systems of the University of California, Irvine (UCI) is excited to announce the third iteration of a short course "Systems Biology, A Foundation for Interdisciplinary Careers." The course is designed to introduce the exciting young field of Systems Biology to trainees and researchers from diverse disciplines, including biology, medicine, mathematics, engineering, physics, and computer science. The course is three weeks long and takes place on the beautiful UCI Campus in Southern California.
This short course provides a broad introduction to Systems Biology, from modeling to experimental methods, to big data analysis. Participants also learn about the challenges of interdisciplinary research, get experience as members of interdisciplinary teams, and receive individualized mentoring by UCI faculty for up to two years after the course.
The short course begins with one week of cross-training, in which participants with biology backgrounds get instruction and practice in relevant mathematics and computation, while participants with theoretical or computational backgrounds get hands-on training in laboratory work.
Diverse, minority, or disabled applicants are strongly encouraged to apply and are eligible for financial support to cover course expenses, travel, and lodging.
Funded by National Institute of General Medicine of the National Institutes of Health (R25-GM126365). PIs: German Enciso and Arthur Lander.
