The second is searching for applicants in the area of computational biology to work with UIC’s Center for Bioinformatics and Quantitative Biology. The third is searching for applicants from all areas of computer science.

Chicago epitomizes the modern, livable, vibrant, and diverse city. World-class amenities like the lakefront, arts and culture venues, festivals, and two international airports make Chicago a singularly enjoyable place to live.  Yet the cost of living, whether in an 88th floor condominium downtown or on a tree-lined street in one of the nation’s finest school districts, is remarkably affordable.
