Oxford Summer School in Computational Biology 2012

From July 9th until August 17th 2012, a project-based summer school in computational biology will take place at the University of Oxford. Applications are invited from students with a strong background in mathematics, statistics, computer science, physics or chemistry, who will have completed at least two years of undergraduate study by summer 2012.

Students will work in teams of three for the six-week period on a cutting-edge research project in bioinformatics/computational biology, working with researchers from Oxford, as well as a number of collaborators visiting from overseas.

The programme will also include a series of lectures and tutorials covering key topics in bioinformatics and genome analysis, and presentations from researchers in the field.

Accepted students will be offered university accommodation for the duration of the programme, and will receive a stipend towards living expenses.

Applications will be assessed in two rounds, and students whose applications are received by the first deadline (27th January) may be eligible for additional funding.

Final application deadline: 5th March, 2012
