The UWA Centre for Applied Bioinformatics supports diverse training in applied bioinformatics.
The UWA Master of Bioinformatics.
For those wishing to gain practical experience combined with a formal qualification in Applied Bioinformatics, we recommend the Master of Bioinformatics. This course offers flexible units that cover the underlying biology combined with the data analysis skills required to establish a career in applied bioinformatics or can be used as the basis for continued PhD study. Students can focus on biomedical, agricultural or environmental aspects of bioinformatics or any combination of these. Further information on this course can be obtained from Master of Bioinformatics or contact the course coordinator Professor Dave Edwards
Groups often seek potential PhD student candidates; however these positions are extremely competitive. If you consider yourself to be an exceptional candidate, please contact the relevant group member and provide detailed information on what you wish to study, experience you wish to gain and what experience you would bring to the group, ensuring this is all described in relation to ongoing research in the group. Please do not send generic requests as these are usually considered spam and deleted without response.
Practical training and experience
Groups associated with the Centre sometimes offer practical research experience. This is usually offered free of charge, but students need to be self-supporting. If you are interested gaining such research experience, please review the member list for a suitable supervisor in your area of interest and then contact them directly, providing detailed information on what you wish to study, experience you wish to gain and what experience you would bring to the group, ensuring this is all described in relation to their ongoing research. Please do not send generic requests as these are usually considered spam and deleted without response.
A series of practical training courses are being developed in the Centre and with Centre partners. Details will be listed below when available. Details will also be distributed in the Centre irregular newsletters. Please contact Professor Dave Edwards if you wish to become a Centre member and receive these newsletters.
