Graduate Studies

Our students are the heart of our graduate programs in chemistry and biochemistry. They are a collection of outstanding young scholars from nearby in Ohio and the Midwest, across the country, and all corners of the globe.

We provide them with excellent training in the classroom and in the research laboratory. Our graduate students go on to hold positions in the finest universities, companies, and government laboratories, and we take pride in their research and professional accomplishments.

Chemistry Ph.D. students receive continuous financial support as graduate fellows, graduate research associates, or graduate teaching associates. You will find research opportunities in analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry, as well as interfacial areas such as chemical physics, environmental chemistry, materials, and theoretical chemistry.

Graduate studies in biochemistry are available through several programs. Students will find many options in biological chemistry and chemical biology in the Chemistry Ph.D. Program. Biochemistry M.S. studies are available as part of a combined B.S./M.S. degree, as well as a focused program in biotechnology. Biochemistry Ph.D. studies are also available through the interdepartmental Ohio State Biochemistry Program (OSBP), which includes many faculty from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The support and academic structures of these programs vary; see the links at the right for more information.

Several faculty members in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry also participate in other interdepartmental Ph.D. programs, including Biophysics, Chemical Physics, Environmental Sciences, and Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology.

We are pleased that you are interested in learning more about our programs and hope that the content of this website is both interesting and informative. Please contact the Graduate Studies office if you can't find the answers to your questions here.
