Potential graduate students (e.g. students looking for a rotation) who have already been accepted to the departments of Medical Genetics or Computer Science are encouraged to contact Gary Bader by e-mail about positions. Prospective PhD students should check out the Molecular Genetics Computational Biology program. Please familiarize yourself with this website and express your research interests in your e-mail. Experience or strong interest in biology and computer science is expected. Computer programming ability is required e.g. R, Python, Java.
Undergraduate students seeking a Computational Biology/Bioinformatics research position for the summer are encouraged to contact Gary Bader by e-mail, ideally between January-April of that year, to find out about available summer positions. Also, the Molecular Genetics Department has a summer program that you can apply to. Computer programming ability and a strong interest in biology is required.
- We mentor students in the Google Summer of Code program every summer, so consider please this program. Applications are usually due annually in March.
UpbeaT, the Student Life blog for the UofT St. George campus has a useful post with advice about summer positions: http://blogs.studentlife.utoronto.ca/UpbeaT/2009/11/06/so-you-want-a-summer-research-position/
Undergraduate Project Courses
If you plan to take an undergraduate project course and are interested in Computational Biology or Bioinformatics, please contact Gary Bader by e-mail to explore the possibilities of completing a research project in the Bader group. These courses are available in most departments, for instance in Molecular Genetics
We periodically have excellent research opportunities for Post-doctoral fellows. Please email your CV and a statement of research interests to Gary Bader.
Bioinformatics Software Developers
We periodically have positions for software developers. Contact Gary Bader for more information.
