Inviting applications for the PhD program in Quantitative Biosciences at Georgia Tech

Apply by December 1, 2019 to Start a Ph.D. in QBioS in Fall 2020.

QBioS is now accepting applications from students interested in integrating quantitative methods with bioscience research.

An Interdisciplinary Graduate Program

The Ph.D. in Quantitative Biosciences is an interdisciplinary program at Georgia Tech, founded in 2015, that includes more than 50 program faculty from six home schools in the College of Sciences.  We now have four classes of doctoral students and more than 30 students, including major fellowship recipients (e.g., NSF GRFP and PEO).

Quantitative Biosciences integrates the physical, mathematical and biological sciences, enabling the discovery of scientific principles underlying the dynamics, structure, and function of living systems.

QBioS research at Georgia Tech includes the study of molecular & cellular systems, chemistry of biological systems, physiology & behavior, evolution, ecology & earth systems, and the physics of living systems.

We welcome applications from strong undergraduates from the physical sciences, biological sciences, mathematics, engineering and computing.

A Novel and Flexible Training Program

The Ph.D. in Quantitative Biosciences training program is designed to prepare students for fulfilling careers in academia, industry and government, including:

    • Foundational courses in Quantitative Biosciences
    • Rotations in computational and/or experimental groups
    • Selection of thesis advisor from all program faculty
    • Rigorous and personalized quantitative training
    • Five-year program of study from entrance to defense
