Application Instructions

Ph.D. students cannot be directly accepted into KarchinLab.

While many colleges and universities have a procedure of admitting Ph.D. students directly into a chosen research lab, Johns Hopkins University does not work this way. The lab is looking for students who are excited about our work and who have strong bioinformatics skills, but we can only consider applications from students after they have been accepted into either:

How do I get accepted into the Johns Hopkins Biomedical Engineering Ph.D program? .

How do I get accepted into the Johns Hopkins Computer Science Ph.D program? .

Can I apply to both Ph.D programs?

Sure! But read the application instructions carefully before you apply and make sure you have the qualifications expected.
