Florida State University Biomathematics
With the rapid growth in the field of biology worldwide, there is a parallel emphasis on quantification in biology. This provides numerous opportunities for individuals trained in a quantitative discipline, such as mathematics, with additional training in topics that are essential to tackling biological problems.
The Biomathematics (or Mathematical Biology) graduate program aims to provide students with this broad training. In addition to flexible course work that covers several disciplines, the PhD program offers students the opportunity to conduct research with faculty on a broad range of biological topics. This research often involves interaction with experimental labs at FSU or elsewhere. The program is one of the largest biomathematics programs in the world, and has been very successful at placing graduates in good postdoctoral and faculty positions.
