Why apply to Clark’s Chemistry doctoral program?
A high-impact, personalized learning experience: It’s the hallmark of the Chemistry doctoral program at The Gustaf H. Carlson School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Clark University. Our program enables graduate students to conduct fundamental research in the areas of biochemistry with a relationship to health and material science with an energy production and conservation focus while tailoring their study to meet their research needs.
Our intimate size within a small urban university provides students with unique opportunities to collaborate closely with faculty members and fellow students. Graduate students have access to state-of-the-art labs and specialized equipment, including multiple NMR spectrometers.
Graduate students receive full tuition remission for five years and receive a stipend for teaching assistantships.
The program combines faculty expertise, research capability, and technology with a supportive environment where students receive mentoring in preparation for independent research and rewarding careers.
The chemistry doctoral program seeks determined, resilient students who are strongly motivated by scientific curiosity and a drive to learn more. Collaboration — between faculty, fellow graduate students, undergraduates, and our interdisciplinary research partners in biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, physics, and mathematics and computer science — is at the core of our program. As such, there’s a sense of community and shared purpose among our diverse group of students in and outside of our labs and research groups.
