Please contact us if you are interested in graduate research assistant or post-doctoral positions in the following areas: Machine learning applications in medical imaging and genomics, Bioinformatics (Computational Biology), Computational Pathology, Computational Genomics.
We look for individuals with strong analytical as well as programming skills. Therefore, if you have taken courses related to machine learning and programming, there is a high likelihood that I am interested to know more about you.
Please include your CV (including details of the projects that you have worked on and link to your code repository) and transcripts (for PhD and MSc candidates) in your correspondence.
Note 1: We admit graduate students through the School of Biomedical Engineering, the Graduate Program in Bioinformatics, and the Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine. In very special cases, we may admit students through the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department.
Note 2: We review ALL the applications that we receive but unfortunately cannot acknowledge receipt due to an overwhelming number of inquiries that we get.
Note 3: Our preference is to admit PhD students. Therefore, outstanding applicants with BSc degrees will be considered for direct admission to PhD program.
Currently, we are only looking for post-doctoral candidates. Graduate applicants with very exceptional track record may be considered as well.
Due to the volume of the applications, we regretfully cannot respond to all the inquiries but guarantee that we read ALL the applications. As such, we will only contact the short-listed applicants.
