The Translational Plant Sciences Graduate Program (TPS) at The Ohio State University is designed for highly motivated students with the drive and passion necessary to do high-impact meaningful research. This program is supported by a powerful, interdisciplinary group of advisory faculty working together to produce the next generation of global leaders in sustainable agricultural biotechnology.
This novel program seeks exceptional students from a variety of disciplines including chemistry, engineering, entomology, ecology, evolution, molecular genetics, microbiology, crop sciences, plant pathology, and bioinformatics.
TPS offers full support for up to five years – full remission of tuition and fees, a competitive stipend, and support for research expenses. Other key aspects of the program include interdisciplinary faculty, a compact and personalized course load, a rigorous focus on research throughout the program, practical experience in each student’s field of interest through a three month+ internship, and opportunities for global collaboration.
TPS has one application cycle per year. The application is currently open, with a deadline of December 1, 2018.
