Description :


The NYU Doctoral Program in Computational Biology (COB) is designed to bring together the faculty and resources of the NYU Graduate School of Arts & Science (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Neural Science), the NYU School of Medicine (Sackler), and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine to train students in the fundamentals and applications of computational methods to biology, including macromolecular structure and function, bioinformatics and genomics, function of physiological systems (cells, organs) and biological imaging.

The Doctoral Program training includes dual faculty mentorship, courses in scientific computing and computational biology, in-depth study in a discipline, interdisciplinary seminars, research ethics, cross-disciplinary interactions through research collaborations and summer internships, as well as various career guidance/mentoring activities. The Program is designed so that students may finish it within five years.

Students completing the program are adept in scientific computation and interdisciplinary and collaborative interactions, develop scientific broadness and creativity through exposure to different disciplinary viewpoints, and develop a facility with scientific communication so that they can integrate biological/chemical knowledge with modeling and computational methods to solve problems that arise in complex biological processes, biotechnology, and biomedicine. Our program is designed so that our graduates can go on to act as catalysts for novel interdisciplinary collaborations, to engage in cutting-edge research and to go on to productive careers in research and education in academia, industry, and government.

We welcome applications from women and other underrepresented groups.

Please browse our website to learn more about our faculty, research themes, graduate program and funding. The NYU Doctoral Program in Computational Biology (COB) is supported by the National Science Foundationís IGERT program and NYU.

The aim of the program is to prepare students for interdisciplinary research in Computational Biology and is open to undergraduate students in biology, chemistry, computer science, and mathematics. The program is a partnership of the NYU Departments of Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Neural Sciences, NYUís Sackler Institute, and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. Given the partners involved, we offer a very broad view of computational biology ranging from bioinformatics to macromolecular modeling to physiological modeling and bioimaging. Thus, students from both the biological and computational disciplines can gain from our program. We offer full funding for five years to any student we accept, either through our NSF IGERT grant or through University funding for non-citizens.
