There was a flyer attached, but since I doubt it would come through anyway, it can also be found here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/1gc7diktyis40pd/qbios_gt_flyer_2015_onepage.pdf?dl=0 <https://www.dropbox.com/s/1gc7diktyis40pd/qbios_gt_flyer_2015_onepage.pdf?dl=0>
Dear Colleagues,

We are actively recruiting strong undergraduates from the physical sciences, biological sciences, mathematics, engineering and computing to join an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program in Quantitative Biosciences (QBioS) at Georgia Tech. Applications are welcome by December 15, 2015 for entrance in August 2016:


The QBioS Ph.D. at Georgia Tech was established in 2015 by an interdisciplinary group of over 40 participating program faculty from seven schools in the College of Sciences, including Applied Physiology, Biology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology:


The mission of QBioS at Georgia Tech is to educate students and advance research in quantitative biosciences, enabling the discovery of scientific principles underlying the dynamics, structure, and function of living systems. The Ph.D. training program is designed to prepare students from a diversity of backgrounds for fulfilling careers in academia, industry and government. The training program features:

* Foundational courses in Quantitative Biosciences
* Rotations in computational and/or experimental groups
* Selection of thesis advisor from all program faculty
* Rigorous and personalized quantitative training
* Five-year program of study from entrance to defense

Please forward this email and pdf attachment to undergraduate students at your institution. Interested students should apply via the links here:


Students are encouraged to email us at admissions_at_qbios.gatech.edu for more information, as well as consult the FAQs for information on courses, research, and applications materials:


Thank you for your consideration.
