Arizona State University Graduate Programs

Undergraduate students check out the graduate programs in Chemistry and Biochemistry in the School of Molecular Sciences at Arizona State University. ASU is actively recruiting a new cohort of graduate students to start in Fall 2018. The School has PhD Programs in both chemistry and biochemistry and all students are guaranteed financial support.

ASU is the largest university in the U.S., with over $500M in research expenditures annually and is one of the fastest growing research enterprises in the U.S. ASU has been ranked as the #1 School in the U.S. for innovation for the last three years, ahead of Stanford (#2) and MIT (#3). A Science Watch article ranked chemistry departments worldwide in terms of the impact of their publications measured in citations. ASU was number six, ahead of MIT, UC Berkeley, Stanford and Yale. The School also ranks highly in terms of publications in the highest visibility journals, such as Science and Nature.

The School has a long history of high visibility, interdisciplinary research that stretches the traditional boundaries of chemistry and biochemistry. Molecular science has now matured to the point that much of our current work directly connects to real-life societal challenges. We work on molecular-based solutions to problems in energy, health and the environment, we build nanostructures for electronics and sensing. We also work to deepen our molecular understanding of biological systems, and extend basic Molecular Science using complex molecular simulations and the highest resolution spectroscopies and single molecule techniques.

Previous students from your institution have been very successful in our graduate programs in the past, and we would welcome additional applications from University of California, San Diego.
