The Weitz group welcomes computational and physical scientists interested in biology and biologists interested in applying/developing quantitative and computational methods to their systems. We have positions available for postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and undergraduate researchers.
The postdoctoral position in biological image analysis has been filled (November 19, 2010).
Students interested in pursuing graduate work in theoretical ecology and integrative biology at Georgia Tech are encouraged to contact Dr. Joshua Weitz. The Weitz group has expertise in ecology, microbiology, systems biology, mathematics and physics, and we are actively seeking students with quantitative training to work on problems ranging from the evolutionary dynamics of viruses, coexistence in microbial communities, to the structure and function of biological networks. The deadline for applications for graduate admissions is December 31, no subject GRE required.
Send cover letter explaining why you want to join the group along with a CV to jsweitz (at) gatech.edu.
Application information for the School of Biology at Georgia Tech may be found here.
Dr. Weitz can mentor students affiliated with the following departments and programs:
- School of Biology
- School of Physics
- Bioinformatics PhD Program
- Computational Sciences and Engineering Program
Fellowships are available from a variety of sources:
