Open Positions

Graduate students

Prospective graduate students interested in computational genomics are encouraged to apply to our graduate program in the Department of Computer Science at Johns Hopkins University. We’re looking for new PhD students to start in 2021. We have ongoing projects in (a) fast and memory-efficient algorithms for analyzing DNA sequencing data, (b) scalable software tools for analyzing, summarizing, indexing and querying large collections of public data, and (c) methods for addressing reference bias in sequencing data analysis.

Our students can take classes in other departments and collaborate across departmental boundaries. Please come, write great software, and collaborate with the excellent biomedical researchers at JHU!
