15 Fully funded PhD studentships in Quantitative Biology

15 Fully funded PhD studentships in Quantitative Biology

========================================================

 

The advent of large-throughput data is transforming life sciences into an increasingly quantitative discipline. The University of Lausanne (Switzerland) is at the forefront of this revolution, with quantitative research ramping up throughout the Faculty of Biology and Medicine, a dedicated department of Computational Biology, and interdisciplinary units such as the Center for Integrative Genomics. UNIL also hosts the headquarters of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, to which many quantitative research groups are affiliated, and closely collaborates with EPFL on the same campus. Ideally situated along the lake of Geneva, near Lausanne’s city center, UNIL brings together over 120 nationalities.

The GEN retreat 2020 in Les Diablerets is canceled

In view of the current COVID situation, up from 10 to 100 infections per day on average, we feel obliged to cancel our traditional Genopode retreat. While this is unfortunate we think that this is the best way forward in the present circumstances.

The Génopode Retreat 2020, September 10 & 11 (Thursday & Friday) in Les Diablerets (Eurotel Victoria).
