Graduate students

Apply now to join CEMB for the upcoming academic year!

CEMB seeks graduate students from across the scientific and engineering disciplines, and from all cultural and socio-economic backgrounds.  Special opportunities are available at all sites for students from backgrounds that have typically been under-represented in the sciences, including the specialized mentoring that CEMB provides to ensure the success of all its trainees.

CEMB trains across disciplines. Incoming engineers and physicists expand their knowledge base in organismal, cellular, and molecular biology and develop a practical understanding of the nature of biological research.  Similarly, incoming biologists grow in their understanding of mechanics and quantitative methods.  Together, these trainees communicate and collaborate in innovative and meaningful ways in the center’s integrative research projects.
