Research opportunities for graduate students in the Department of Chemistry exist in two interdisciplinary PhD programs: the PhD Program in Coastal Resources Management (CRM) and the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Program in the Biological Sciences (IDPBS). The Department of Chemistry offers a concentration in Chemistry through the IDPBS program (see below).
Our concentration in the IDPBS is designed to provide doctoral education at the interface between chemistry and biology with a concentration in chemistry. Students in this program will receive broad exposure to topics in chemistry and other biological sciences. The department has expertise in both the experimental and computational methodologies used to investigate important issues. Some of the fields of study include:
The core mission of this program is to produce scientists of the highest quality that will become future leaders in academia, government, and industry. Graduates will possess exemplary qualities that will allow them to excel in a wide range of scientific fields.
