Genome Institute of Singapore
The Genome Institute of Singapore (A*STAR) offers scholarships for international students to pursue a computational biology research project for up to 6 months. Successful candidates will work on a full time research project in the team of Jonathan Göke. Our group works with transcriptomics and genomics data, we develop algorithms for large scale data analysis, and we apply machine learning techniques to integrate genomic and clinical data. Every student will have a dedicated computational project and will also be encouraged to co-author scientific publications.
The scholarships are available for undergraduate students in their third or fourth year, and to Master students. Students should have a background in bioinformatics, computer science, or statistics. Research internships are ideally suited to students interested in pursuing a scientific career. The official language in Singapore is English, so good communication skills in English are essential.
Students who are interested in a research internship at the Genome Institute of Singapore can contact Dr. Jonathan Göke for additional details (gokej at gis.a-star.edu.sg, please include a recent CV). For information about research areas, please visit www.jglab.org or www.gis.a-star.edu.sg.
