Researcher education (PhD)
There is an increasing demand for candidates with competence in bioinformatics, especially within research, but also in the health sector and other non-academic sectors. The analytical and systematic processing of large amounts of biological data, or the development methods for this purpose, are a common denominator in most PhD projects within bioinformatics.
In addition to a career in bioinformatics, a PhD degree in bioinformatics is also highly relevant for many research groups within the life sciences in general, which is increasingly dependent on strengthening its data analysis competence.
Upon completion of the degree, the candidates are attractive beyond pure bioinformatics jobs as many of the methods used to organize and analyze biological data have broader applications.
