subject: Systems Biology Short Courses, UC Irvine, January to February 2019

The Center for Complex Biological Systems at the University of California,
Irvine is excited to announce two NIH-funded “short courses” in Systems
Biology:

1) Systems Biology: Foundation for Interdisciplinary Careers
2) Cancer Systems Biology

These are three-week, on-site, intensive lecture- and laboratory-based courses
intended for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, junior and senior
faculty, and industry scientists. Training will be provided by UCI faculty and
invited outside experts. Both courses will be held from January 21st-Feburary
8th, 2019, on the UCI Campus in beautiful Southern California.

The courses have been designed to serve both individuals from quantitative and
computational disciplines who wish to apply their training to biology, as well
as individuals from biological and biomedical science who wish to move their
research in more quantitative and computational directions. The courses are
supported by NIH grants and other sources that provide financial support for
course activities and a portion of trainee expenses. Diverse, minority and
disabled applicants are especially encouraged to apply, and are eligible for
additional financial support.

We hope you will consider attending one of these two courses, or would be
willing to share this email with individuals you think might be interested.
Detailed information about both courses can be found on the Center for Complex
Biological Systems home page (ccbs.uci.edu). In addition, please feel
free to contact any one of us if you have any specific questions.

subject: BioBridge Clinic, UC Irvine

The NSF-Simons Center for Multiscale Cell Fate (CMCF) will have a one-week
BioBridge Clinic in conjunction with the Systems Biology Short Course at UCI.

The BioBridge clinic will provide an accessible entry point for mathematical
scientists who wish to receive an introduction to biological theory and
practice. It will include hands-on experiments as well as introductory lectures
in molecular, cellular, and developmental biology, providing exposure to a
range of experimental model systems. The BioBridge Clinic is open only to PhD
students and postdoctoral fellows.

The first BioBridge Clinic will take place the week of January 20, 2019. There
will be a $400 registration fee for the one-week Clinic, which will include
breakfast and lunch. Four Clinic fellowships, with each up to $900, will be
provided to successful applicants. The deadline to submit an application is
November 30, 2018. Please submit your applications online at
cellfate.uci.edu. For questions, please contact cellfate@uci.edu.

Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (Computational & Systems Biology)

Deadline: December 1, 2018 at 12:00 noon Hong Kong Time

The research group led by Dr. Pan-Jun Kim (Department of Biology) at Hong Kong
Baptist University invites candidates in the area of computational & systems
biology from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, with strong mathematical
talents, evidence of academic excellence, evidence of research ability and
potential, and good communication and leadership abilities to apply for
full-time PhD study under the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS). HKPFS is
established by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council (RGC) with an aim to
attract the best and brightest students from all over the world to pursue their
PhD studies in Hong Kong.

The details of the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme are provided in the
following website:
gs.hkbu.edu.hk/admission/hong-kong-phd-fellowship-scheme/introduction

Pan-Jun Kim’s group is undertaking cutting-edge research with predictive
computational modeling and large-scale data analysis, which will lead to
breakthroughs in our understanding of collective dynamics of biological systems
and its medical applications. Recent experimental technologies have generated
enormous amount of biological data at various scales. Computational
methodologies developed in mathematics, physics, computer science, and
engineering enable modeling and analyses of complex biological processes. In
Pan-Jun Kim’s research group, the specific areas of interest include global
microbial ecosystems inside human body and their medical implications, and
various metabolic, regulatory, and signaling networks inside/between cells and
their emergent functional outcomes. More information can be found from
panjunkim.com.

To apply for the Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme, please follow the
instructions at
gs.hkbu.edu.hk/admission/hong-kong-phd-fellowship-scheme/introduction

The application deadline is December 1, 2018 at 12:00 noon Hong Kong Time.
