Computational Life Science

In recent years, biological research has become increasingly interdisciplinary, focusing heavily on mathematical modeling and on the analysis of system-wide quantitative information. Sophisticated high-throughput techniques pose new challenges for data integration and data interpretation. The Computational Life Science (CompLife) MSc program at Jacobs University meets these challenges by covering computational, theoretical and mathematical approaches in biology and the life sciences. It is geared towards students of the life sciences, bioinformatics, computer science, physics, mathematics and related areas.

Program Features

The CompLife program is located at Jacobs University, a private and international English-language academic institution in Bremen, Germany. CompLife students at Jacobs University take a tailor-made curriculum comprising lectures, seminars and laboratory trainings. Courses cover foundational as well as advanced topics and methods. Core components of the program and areas of specialization include:

  • Computational Systems Biology
  • Computational Physics and Biophysics
  • Bioinformatics
  • RNA Biology
  • Imaging and Modeling in Medicine
  • Ecological Modeling
  • Theoretical Biology
  • Applied Mathematics
  • Numerical Methods

For more details on the CompLife curriculum, please visit the program website.

Career Options

Graduates of the CompLife program are prepared for a career in biotechnology and biomedicine. Likewise, graduates of the program are qualified to move on to a PhD.

Campus Life and Accommodation

Jacobs University’s green and tree-shaded campus provides much more than buildings for teaching and research. It is home to an intercultural community which is unprecedented in Europe. A Student Activities Center, various sports facilities, a music studio, a student-run café/bar, concert venues and our Interfaith House ensure that you will always have something interesting to do.

For graduate students who would like to live on campus, Jacobs University offers accommodation in four residential colleges. Each college has its own dining room, recreational lounge, study areas, and common and group meeting rooms.

Application and Admission

Following an orientation week at the end of August, the CompLife program starts in the first week of September every year. Please contact and visit us here for details on how to apply. We are looking forward to receiving your inquiry.
