The Division of Biostatistics and Bioinformatics at the University of California San Diego (UCSD) is pleased to solicit applications for the PhD program in Biostatistics, for Fall 2018. The Division is housed in the research-intensive UCSD School of Medicine, which has research funding of over $1 billion annually. Located on the coast of sunny southern California, UCSD is central to a robust biotechnology hub and hosts the SD Supercomputer center, the Jacobs School of Engineering, the Moores Cancer Center, and other distinguished research institutes. The Division has a strong record of outstanding research in methodological biostatistics and in interdisciplinary, collaborative biomedical research. See: UCSD Biostatistics

The UCSD Biostatistics PhD program is an interdisciplinary program distinguished by its high mathematical content and rigorous training in theory and methods, as well as training in computation, data analysis and practical collaborative skills. We aim to train the next generation of biostatisticians in the mathematical theory, computational skills, and inferential methods needed to analyze large and complex biomedical data. More information can be found at Biostatistics PhD Program

We encourage applications from highly motivated individuals with a strong mathematical background and deep interest in computation and quantitative problems applied to the biological sciences, medicine, environmental science and/or public health. We expect to provide a stipend and tuition to selected students for the duration of their studies.

**Applications will be accepted September 5, 2017- January 8, 2018**. Please apply at: https://apply.grad.ucsd.edu/home
