Molecular Biosciences Ph.D. | Doctorate / PhD | Science | On Campus | 2 semesters | Middle Tennessee State University | USA
The Molecular Biosciences Ph.D. interdisciplinary program focuses on the study of biological problems at the molecular level using chemical, computational, mathematical, physical, and statistical approaches as well as conventional biological approaches. Faculty come from the departments of biology, Chemistry, Mathematical Sciences, and Physics and Astronomy, offering students a truly diverse education. The program helps each graduate develop in-depth research ability in a specific area within the sub-disciplines. Doctoral candidates initially engage in bench research with faculty mentors. Students later design and conduct research as independent scientists who contribute original knowledge to the discipline and complete a dissertation. Faculty are engaged in research areas such as biochemistry, biotechnology, cell biology, Ecology, environmental toxicology, evolutionary biology, Immunology, microbiology, molecular modeling, and structural biology. Students are required to make research presentations, author or co-author journal articles, and make a significant contribution to an external grant proposal. Research and teaching assistantships are available on a competitive basis.
