Joining the Lab

Graduate Research Opportunities

Assistantships are available for students interested in pursuing a Master’s or Ph.D. in computational systems biology. Our research in this area involves developing computational methods for inferring the underlying structure and behavior of biological systems. Recent work by our lab includes combining stochastic simulation and optimization techniques to characterize promoter architecture from single-cell gene expression data.

The successful candidate should be highly motivated and have some computer programming experience (R, MATLAB, Perl, Python, C, or C++). Prior research experience in bioinformatics and/or computational biology is desirable. Details about admission and degree requirements can be found at the following links: Bioinformatics (MS), Biological Sciences (MS/PhD). Applicants must apply to both The University of Memphis Graduate School and the corresponding graduate program. To ensure full consideration, applications should be completed by February 1.

If interested, please email Dr. Daigle for further information.
