Welcome Prospective Students!


​Some of our graduates have gone to research-oriented postdoctoral positions at institutions such as Oxford University, Caltech, the University of Arizona, and the University of Minnesota. Some hold or have held tenure-track positions in the US, Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, and many other countries. Some have taken positions in industry and government organizations, including DuPont, Merck, the National Security Agency, NIST, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Barclays Bank, Schonfeld Securities LLC, and many others. Some of the faculty's research interests can be found here. If any of these areas interest you, then there is a good chance we can be the place to forward your career too!​

First Year Experience

In addition to our graduate program, we provide activities for first-year students to enhance their experience and chances for success. Students are invited to campus in July before classes begin for an orientation and review of key academic material. In August we require university and department training for teaching assistants.

In the first year, students get help applying for fellowships in a specially designed fall workshop. Students are invited to attend our Graduate Student Seminar series, and encouraged to attend some of the numerous research seminars and co​lloquia​​ held weekly. We offer a preparatory session in January for the required preliminary examinations. And, in the summer after the first year, students are offered support for either independent study or in our collaborative summer research program.

Further information concerning the program can be found by following the links to the left.
