Grad School Opportunity in Biostatistics

Friend of the blog, Dr. Goodey, forwarded this announcement which may be interesting if you like both math and biology:

Georgetown University: Department of Biostatistics, Bioinformatics and Biomathematics

Are you interested in genetics, bioterrorism, international health, bioinformatics, epidemiology or health policy?

Our M.S. program provides integrated training in computational, quantitative, and biomedical sciences to support health-related research performed in academia, government, and industry. Students will not only acquire the quantitative and computational tools that underpin epidemiology and bioinformatics, but also gain substantive exposure to applications of these tools to biological and health sciences. Our program brings together faculty from our Department and from Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) Basic Science and Clinical Departments, many of whom are members of Georgetownʼs Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center (LCCC). Graduates with an MS degree in Biostatistics go on to successful and lucrative positions in academic centers, pharmaceutical companies, biotechnology companies and private consulting firms.

Applications for our Masters of Science Program in Biostatistics are currently open for Fall 2011. Application deadline is June 1st, 2011.
