[Please forward to interested parties]

NEW: Nice Sophia Antipolis University (France) is launching a new Master 
of Science program in Computational Biology. The scientific goal of this 
program is to focus on the human being from different perspectives 
(understanding and modeling functional aspects or interpreting 
biomedical signals from various devices) and at different scales (from 
molecules to organs and the whole organism).

GOAL: The goal of this program is to provide excellent academic or 
industrial career opportunities by offering high level coverage of 
modeling and computing principles that will help to meet the challenges 
and make the technological choices of tomorrow in the domains of 
biological and medical computing. To achieve this, all classes will be 
given in English by several outstanding professors and researchers from 
research institutes in the campus: Nice Sophia Antipolis University/CNRS 
(I3S, IPMC, LJAD, INLN) and INRIA. The curriculum consists of two 
periods, namely classes over a 6 months period, followed by a research 

ADMISSION CRITERIA: Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of the program, 
the program is designed for those having completed the first-year MSc 
program at home institution in either computer science, electrical 
engineering, applied mathematics, mathematical biology, bioinformatics 
or biophysics.

IMPORTANT DATES: Application period is now open for 2010-2011. Any 
student from any country can register. Important dates are:
# November 1st, 2009 to April 5th, 2010: First round of applications

# June 25th, 2010: Notification of acceptance of the second round

SCHOLARSHIPS: The scholarship program offers outstanding students the 
chance to receive a grant covering the living expenses during the first 
period of the master. Early application increases the chances of 
receiving financial aid. Therefore, it is in the applicant’s best 
interest to submit his/her application at the first round of applications.
