Doctoral Program in Biochemistry
Program Chairperson: Lipke, Peter N
Location: 200 Ingersoll Hall Extension
At Brooklyn College, the biochemistry faculty is drawn from the Biology and Chemistry departments, offering doctoral students interested in biochemistry a vibrant, interdisciplinary, and research directed-program that is designed to foster both research training and opportunities for professional development that will give students more options for their careers after their Ph.D's are completed. The biochemistry faculty currently numbers fifteen; over half are women, with a low student-to-faculty ratio.
Grant Support and Research Resources
The Brooklyn College Doctoral Program in Biochemistry
To ensure our doctoral students are competitive and have many career options after they obtain their degrees, Brooklyn College provides professional development workshops in such areas as science teaching, grant writing, laboratory management, effective scientific communication, writing in the sciences, building a competitive curriculum vita, and searching for academic, industrial and research jobs. Our commitment to our students is not complete when they file their dissertations-our faculty members continue to provide a supportive professional mentoring network to our students as they advance in their careers. Graduates of the biochemistry program go on to excellent post-doctoral fellowships, academic jobs, and industrial positions.
