Join the Group


If you are a current graduate student at UF interested in working with me on developing methods and software for analyzing genomic data, please feel free to email me (rbacher@ufl.edu) to discuss.

For prospective graduate students, if you’re interested in working with me specifically then send me an email describing your interests along with your CV. Note you must also meet the qualifications for admittance to the Department of Biostatistics PhD program and be accepted into the program. More information is available here.

Often we have projects that might work well for undergraduate students. If you have coursework in statistics, computer science, or mathematics and some experience programming, send me an email (rbacher@ufl.edu) to discuss.
