Doctor of Philosophy in Microbiology

 A Ph.D. is required for careers in independent academic research in microbiology and immunology. The Ph.D. degree is most often followed by two or more years of postdoctoral training in a specific area of research. Ph.D. graduates in microbiology, with appropriate postdoctoral experience, are ready to compete effectively for faculty positions at a college or university, senior level positions in biotech industry and government. The faculty in this program have diverse research interests ranging from the molecular pathogenesis of infectious agents (bacteria and viruses) to the understanding of immune function. Students with undergraduate degrees in microbiology, biochemistry or other similar disciplines are encouraged to apply.
