The SFI Centre for Research Training (CRT) in Genomics Data Science will produce a cohort of highly trained scientists capable of engaging effectively with the data science challenges involved in realizing the transformative potential of genomics across the broad range of its applications.
“Genomes are at the heart of all living things. In combination with modern data science techniques, genomics has the capacity both to reveal deep biological insights and to transform applications of the life sciences, from health to food and agriculture.” Prof Cathal Seoighe, Director of SFI Centre for Research Training in Genomics Data Science.
The Genomics Data Science PhD is a 4-year structured PhD training programme. Over 100 researchers, including many of Ireland’s top genomics scientists, are associated with the programme and available as PhD supervisors. Research projects can be based in any of five participating Irish Institutions (NUI Galway, UCD, UCC, TCD and RCSI).
Students can choose from projects across seven research themes:
Students will receive an annual stipend (tax free) of €18,500 and their accommodation is arranged and paid for while on the 1st Semester Residential Training Programme in year 1. Each student will receive a high-end laptop as well as generous travel, workshop, placement and publication cost allowances.
A unique feature of this programme is that it was designed to be student-led and this applies to the choice of research projects. Students will have the opportunity to interact with supervisors during the 1st semester and then choose from the list of projects that are offered by supervisors at any of the participating institutions.
The PhD is fully funded, including tuition fees and a tax-free stipend of €18,500 per annum.
NOTE: 10 of the PhD positions on offer are within an EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND sub-programme called INTEGRATE. Applicants for these positions benefit from an EU defined minimum salary but applicants must comply with MSCA eligibility rules.
