Application for QSB graduate program (M.S. and Ph.D.) is now open! Application deadline is 12/15/2014

Welcome to the QSB Graduate Group


The Quantitative and Systems Biology Graduate Group at UC Merced offers cross-disciplinary masters and doctoral training with unique and competitive advantages: quantitative training, readiness to collaborate in cross-disciplinary teams, and mastery of the concepts and technologies of modern biological research.



QSB faculty collaborate across six academic units: molecular and cell biology, life and environmental sciences, chemistry, physics, applied mathematics and engineering.

QSB seeks applications from students with all relevant degrees in science or engineering. Students are encouraged to “cross over” fields and expand their interdisciplinary training through QSB.



Applicants are encouraged to directly contact QSB faculty members whose research is of interest, including a covering letter and a copy of your Curriculum Vitae. All applicants are required to complete the General Test of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE). The application deadline is Dec. 15 annually. View instructions on how to apply for graduate studies in QSB.
