MS in Applied Chemical Science & Technology at the University of Washington

The University of Washington is directing a Master of Science in Applied Chemical Science and Technology Program. This program allows students to learn how to harness and apply tools to solve real-world problems and make scientific advances.

Students can earn a degree in one year or pursue two years on a thesis track. The program teaches skills required for applied chemistry jobs, chemical instrumentation and cheminformatics, and get hands-on experience in tools and techniques. The estimated cost per credit is $691; the estimated total cost for a 36-credit non-thesis track is $24,867; and the estimated total cost for a 48-credit thesis track is $33,168.

There is an information session on January 4, 2023 from 4-5 P.M. PST. You can RSVP for the information session here.

The application deadline is January 31, 2023. You can learn more about the program and apply here. A flyer with further information can be found here. Any questions can be sent to

Rutgers Chemistry & Chemical Biology Graduate Open House

Rutgers University Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology invites you to join a Virtual Open House for their Graduate Program.

The Open House will cover the application process and tips, generous stipends, fellowships, student life, and close industry connections. There will be grad students and faculty panels.

Two sessions are available:

  • Wednesday, November 16 at 10:00 AM EST
  • Wednesday, November 16 at 8:00 PM EST

Email to register. Zoom link will be provided upon registration.

Info Session: Cell and Developmental Biology Grad Program

Emory University invites you to a Virtual Admission Info Session for their Biochemistry, Cell and Developmental Biology (BCDB) Graduate Program. BCBD Faculty and students will discuss the application process, the BCBD program and culture, Emory, Atlanta, and why the BCBD program will prepare you for diverse scientific careers.

The session is TOMORROW, November 8, from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST via Zoom. Register here.

About BCBD: The BCDB program is a cross-disciplinary training program that encourages and fosters innovative thinking and experimentation. Program faculty members are drawn from 15 departments within Emory University to provide training in Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Development, Molecular Biology, Structural Biology, Cancer Biology, and allied areas of research. The program uses formalized training in scientific research, presentation, writing, hypothesis design, and teaching to enable students to integrate diverse biological disciplines. Students graduate as well-rounded biomedical research scientists who are highly competitive in a number of different career paths.

Chemistry-Biology Interface Grad Program at Johns Hopkins

The Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) Graduate Program at Johns Hopkins University provides students with research and academic training that enables them to challenge the traditional boundaries separating chemistry from biology. Students completing the CBI program receive a Ph.D. in Chemical Biology. Previous graduates have gained employment in commercial, government and academic institutions.

The CBI Program brings together 32 faculty from the Schools of Arts & Sciences, Engineering, Public Health, and Medicine at Johns Hopkins and provides a diverse selection of research projects for students. To assist them in choosing a research advisor, first year CBI students participate in three 10-week research rotations that enable them to broaden their research skills and make informed choices of research advisors.

Since its establishment in 2005, the CBI Program has received an enthusiastic response and has grown to over 35 current Ph.D. students. To date, ~15% of CBI students are from groups historically underrepresented in Chemistry and Biology. Hopkins is very interested in increasing the number of students from these backgrounds. Hopkins is a very supportive institution and Baltimore is a multi-cultural city. The University has a number of mechanisms to support minority graduate students.
