Inquiries about grad school

EBE offers a small number of outstanding and strongly motivated students a research focused PhD degree with minimal course work. Prospective graduate students are encouraged to contact potential faculty advisors directly as admission is highly competitive and a strong endorsement and pledge of financial support from a professor is essential. To establish whether an individual professor is recruiting students for their laboratory we welcome pre-application inquiries. Please recognize that a strong undergraduate record and GRE scores and prior research experience are essential. Formal applications should be completed in December and selected candidates are invited to interview in February.

Admission to the Divisionís graduate program has become very competitive and opportunities for research in my laboratory are limited by the availability of funds.

We do not offer Masters degrees at this time. Admission to our BS/MS degree program is open only to qualified UCSD undergraduate students.
