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. The affiliated faculty have a broad range of expertise, including biological modeling and data science. These topics are covered in the flexible course work, which allows for an emphasis in modeling or in data science. The PhD program offers students the opportunity to conduct research with faculty on a broad range of biological topics, and in some cases includes interaction with experimental labs at FSU or elsewhere. The program has been very successful at placing graduates in good postdoctoral and faculty positions both in and outside of the U.S.
