Description

PhD student positions now available for Fall 2020 researching Computational Cancer Biology at UMass Lowell. This research sits at the crossroads of computational biology, data science, and epidemiology, and there are a number of possible projects rdmelamed.github.io/#projects. Your ideas for other projects are welcome!

Students who want to work in cancer research, and who are interested in learning and applying data science methods should contact me to join. Our work is 100% computational, using data sets generated by other people. So, students should be excited to learn to visualize and model data sets using tools like R and Python, and packages like tensorflow/pytorch and Stan.

These positions are fully funded with a mix of TAship and research funds. Students should contact me, and can apply to the UML Applied Biology PhD program www.uml.edu/sciences/biology/programs-of-study/phd-applied-biology.aspx – applications are rolling.

Please see more at rdmelamed.github.io/join/ and email:
- A cover letter describing why you are interested in the lab, how your background is related to this research, and what kind of projects you would like to work on in this lab.
- Your resume
- An unofficial transcript (or, relevant course background can be summarized in the resume)
