Graduate Program in Chemistry
The graduate program in chemistry offers students an especially stimulating educational and research environment within a community of nationally and internationally respected researchers and scholars. Our program is highly personalized, giving all students the opportunity to work closely with faculty mentors and to engage fully in important research projects while developing their individual research interests and capabilities. Currently, there are approximately 150 graduate students and 110 postdoctoral students in the department.
This is an exciting time for the chemistry department as we settle into our beautiful state-of-the-art building, the Frick Chemistry Laboratory. The public gathering areas are designed to enhance the already active communication between faculty and students of varying disciplines, and the world-class laboratories provide an exceptional research environment. The building is located in the new natural sciences neighborhood of the University that includes, among others, the departments of molecular biology, physics and geosciences, all of which are within a short distance of the chemistry department.
There are many opportunities for interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research building from ongoing collaborations between chemistry faculty and faculty across the University. Bolstering this interdisciplinary research at the forefront of science are partnerships between faculty in chemistry with faculty involved in programs such as the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials (PRISM), the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, the Princeton Environmental Institute (PEI), the Program in Neuroscience, the Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics and the Program in Plasma Science and Technology.
The chemistry department has an extraordinarily active seminar program that features eminent researchers from major universities and institutions. Graduate students also are encouraged to arrange and host a series of seminar talks by top researchers.
