[Please forward to interested parties]

Nice Sophia Antipolis University (France) is proposing a Master of 
Science 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 take up 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 internship.

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.

SCHOLARSHIPS

The scholarship program offers outstanding students the chance to 
receive a grant for the first half of the program (M2S1) covering life 
expenses. The second half (M2S2) will be funded by the employer 
(research lab or industry) for every student who is admitted to the 
program.

PROCEDURE

Applications must be submitted through the MSc website where application 
and referee forms are available. There are two selection rounds. It is 
in the applicant’s best interest to submit his/her application at the 
first round of applications to increase the chances of receiving a 
scholarship.

IMPORTANT DATES

November 6, 2010 - April 4, 2011: First round of applications
May 2, 2011: Notification of acceptance of the first round
