BIOINFORMATICS @ UOFL
Big data is everywhere, and its influence and practical omnipresence across life sciences industries will just continue to grow. For life and computer scientists with expertise and an interest in bioinformatics and genomics the job outlook couldn’t be rosier. Big pharma, biotech, and genomics software companies are clamoring to hire professionals with experience in bioinformatics and the identification and analysis, of huge amounts of biological and health care information. With the rapid development of next generation sequencing to make sense of life science research and outcomes, spurred by innovative research in bioinformatics itself, students who are entranced by data can pursue more career options than ever before .
Want to be part of the fourth industrial revolution?
We are always looking for fresh minds, passionate about science, who can step in and get involved in a wide range of training projects from lab bench to in silico analysis.
UNDERGRADUATE AND GRADUATE STUDENTS
Undergraduate, MSc and PhD Training Opportunities
in Bioinformatics and Genomics
for Students in Math/Computer and Life sciences
Genomics is rapidly evolving into a multi-billion research enterprise and industry. We are looking for talented undergraduate students with an enthusiastic interest in this field to join the research group of Dr. Athan Zovoilis at the Southern Alberta Genome Sciences Centre (SAGSC). Dr Zovoilis joined the University of Lethbridge from Harvard Medical School (US) and holds a Canada Research Chair in RNA Bioinformatics and Genomics. Successful applicants from math/computer and life sciences will join a highly interdisciplinary and stimulating research environment working on computational or wet lab projects at the cutting edge of genomics & biologically inspired software engineering.

ARRTI, the largest RNA research center in Western Canada, is part of the University of Lethbridge (UofL), one the most dynamic and fast growing Universities in Canada, not accidentally referred to as “Alberta’s Destination University”, located in the picturesque City of Lethbridge. Lethbridge, the fastest growing Canadian city in its category, is a medium size prosperous city ranked as one of the best places to live in Canada. UofL is well positioned as the third largest research University of Alberta, the richest Canadian Province, and it is only 45 minutes away from the Canadian Rockies, a top tourist and recreation destination in North America of wild and pristine beauty. Being in a country that strongly values diversity, we would be glad to hear from international students.
