Opportunities

Undergraduates- Many research and technology development opportunities are available for motivated undergraduate students in computational and biological sciences.  The possibilities range from volunteering in one of our research laboratories to completing an honors thesis or internship under the guidance of a core faculty member.  Selected students will have an opportunity to become members of research teams focusing on (1) building user-friendly software, (2) developing web-databases, and (3) automating genome and image analysis.
 
Graduate Students- Thinking of pursuing a master’s or PhD?  CEMI has many opportunities for those considering completing an advanced degree.  The center collaborates with departments throughout ASU such as Chemistry and Biochemistry, Biology, Computer Science, and Engineering to help you achieve your goals while working within our vision of evolutionary medicine and informatics.
 
Postdoctoral Research Associates- A range of opportunities exist to those looking for postdoctoral work within CEMI.  Successful candidates must have expertise in one of the following five areas:  (1) comparative analysis of DNA and protein sequences, (2) development of statistical or computational methods for molecular evolutionary analysis, (3) computer simulations in molecular phylogenetics, (4) building developmental gene interaction networks from data-mining, and (5) biological software and database development.  Candidates must have a Ph.D. in a related discipline.  For more information about specific research projects visit our research theme pages.
