To ensure that your application is reviewed by those who can best evaluate your research contributions and potential, please review the information below and choose your research area carefully before submitting your application.
The PhD admissions process is led by committees based on the department’s seven core research areas. A description of our research areas can be found here. Each application is reviewed by one or more application review committees based on the core research area chosen by the applicant in the Program Details section of the online application.
Members of the application review committees for each research area are listed below. Please note that these committee members are subject to change; participating members may vary from year-to-year, and participation on the committee does not guarantee that a faculty member will be accepting students during the current admissions cycle. We suggest that you contact any faculty members with whom you are interested in working to learn more about potential opportunities in their labs.
Before choosing your core research areas on your application, please review the committees below to find faculty of interest. Be sure to indicate the corresponding research areas on your application in the Program Details section.
