Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (Computational & Systems Biology)
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: https://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.
