PhD in Systems Biology

Areas for PhD supervision include:

Cutting Edge Analytical Technologies for Systems Biology Research; Bioinformatics; Statistical Approaches to Analysing and Modelling Biological Processes; Computational Modelling and Simulations; Computational Neuroscience; Data Science; Machine Learning; Medical Systems Biology; Plant Systems Biology; Spatial Systems Biology; Cell Signalling; Cell Mechanics.

The Systems Biology Centre provided me with a multidisciplinary, collaborative research environment during my PhD. With a number of subject matter experts in various domains, you are quickly exposed to a large range of disciplines and approaches to solving scientific problems. These experiences left me well prepared to join the pharmaceutical industry, having experience with cross-domain collaborations and the challenges of organising multi-institutional research programs.
