Graduate Students

  • Ph.D. options in Molecular Biophysics

MMA faculty are recruiting students in the CUNY Ph.D. programs in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, Physics, and Chemical Engineering. These degrees are awarded by CCNY in Engineering and, for the bench sciences,
jointly with The CUNY Graduate School. Our Molecular Biophysics track, sometimes referred to by the moniker Biochemistry/Biophysics/Biodesign (B^3), can be pursued in Chemistry, Biochemistry, or Physics; our courses also satisfy elective course requirements in Chemical Engineering or Biology. In addition to undertaking intensive curricula in their respective specialties, Molecular Biophysics students take common courses in biophysics, biomaterials, and/or college teaching methods. Additional co-curricular activities include networking events, research seminars, ethics training, and curriculum design projects.
