Rothberg Fellowships in Computational Molecular Biology

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of South Carolina invites applications for two Henry M. Rothberg Fellowships in Computational Molecular Biology (a fund established in 2001 for up to three fellowships).

The Department seeks applicants to its Ph.D. program with an outstanding background in bioinformatics/computational biology and a commitment to pursue research excellence in the bioinformatics program.

Preference will be given to individuals with backgrounds that complement and strengthen our existing efforts in the development of new algorithms and methods for viral and bacterial genome analysis, protein structure elucidation, microarray analysis and phylogenetic tree construction, as well as parallelization of algorithms and creation of bioinformatics kernels for FPGAs.

Interested students should contact the Graduate Director for more information.
