Opportunities for Research
Working closely with faculty, graduate students receive mentorship from experts in their areas whose research has been recognized with funding from sources including the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the Petroleum Research Fund, and publications in high-impact peer reviewed journals.
In addition, graduate students benefit from faculty connections across Clark’s biology, chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology, and math and computer science departments, and at partnering institutions.
Graduate students’ research experience provides a springboard to presenting their research at Clark’s Graduate Student Multidisciplinary Conference as well as external national conferences such as those sponsored by the American Physical Society and Gordon Research Conferences, and publishing their research in a variety of journals including several members of the Physical Review Journals.
Funding for Research
The department provides funding for graduate students to attend conferences at which they present their research. Students are encouraged to seek additional support for research and travel expenses as well.
