The full version of the following announcement has just been sent to
the bionet.announce moderator, etc. If you're not reading bionet.announce,
or you don't want to wait until the message is approved & redistributed,
please read it at http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/bcd/Adm/recruit.html
After the successful completion of the 1995 GNA-VSNS Biocomputing Course
(see our homepage at http://www.techfak.uni-bielefeld.de/bcd/welcome.html, OR
we are now preparing for the second edition, starting approx. April 29,
and lasting for approx. 11 weeks. The entire course material will be delivered
through the Internet, and instruction will take place via the electronic
conferencing system BioMOO at Weizmann Institute, Israel.
We are once again looking for "Consulting Students", i.e. students who are
guaranteed admission in return for helping us in technical and administrative
matters. If you're seriously interested in any of these "jobs", please
contact the course coordinator, vsns-bcd-admcoord at techfak.uni-bielefeld.de
(Georg Fuellen) as soon as possible !
Enrollment into the Summer 1996 course may be limited to approx. 30 students
(depending on the availability of instructors), so this is your excellent
chance for getting a free ticket to an exciting, cutting-edge learning
experience in biocomputing !
If you are _not_ interested in any of these "jobs", the one and only thing you
can do right now is to subscribe to our vsns-bcd-prospective mailing list,
by sending email to
majordomo at hrz.uni-bielefeld.de, with no subject, and the following body:
and wait for the announcement of more 1996 consulting student jobs, etc !
