Through our Training group, we provide a rich course offering to students, researchers, bioinformaticians, programmers, technicians and clinical professionals, from academia and industry. Participants from Switzerland and beyond are thus able to hone their skills across the spectrum of bioinformatics techniques, methods and tools. 

Courses for scientists

We offer courses for researchers at all levels: PhD students and postdocs, senior scientists, principal investigators, as well as research staff such as programmers, technicians or bioinformaticians, from Switzerland or abroad. Participants from industry are welcome to attend SIB courses to rapidly develop expertise in a specific area, such as genomics, proteomics and systems biology.  

To specifically support the PhD students in Switzerland carrying out research in bioinformatics or computational biology, the institute runs the SIB PhD Training Network.

Are you looking for a new challenge or a career change? SIB courses are also open to participants with a scientific background, looking for additional training.
