Information for Prospective Ph.D. Students

The department offers three distinct research tracks within the PhD program, allowing you to choose a PhD emphasis in either Genome Biology & Genetics, Ecology & Systematics, or Microbiology.

Our doctoral program is unique in that in addition to traditional research training, Students are trained to apply sophisticated quantitative techniques to solve research problems in biology. Knowledge of the quantitative aspects of biological research gives our graduates a competitive advantage for careers in industry, government, or academia.
