Graduate Studies in Chemistry

The Ph.D. program in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology of Cornell University (C&CB) provides broad training opportunities across the chemical sciences. The Department offers in-depth programs of study in the major chemical disciplines (Organic, Physical, Inorganic, Theoretical and Analytical) as well as in high interest areas such as Nanotechnology, Chemical Biology, and Materials Chemistry.

One of the nation's oldest and esteemed Chemistry Departments, C&CB has been home to four Nobel Prize winners, was the founding institution for the Journal of Physical Chemistry, and has been consistently ranked a Top 10 chemistry graduate program by US News and World Report. Students in our programs avail themselves of cutting-edge research facilities on the Cornell Campus, which include the Cornell Nanofabrication Center (CNF), the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (CHESS), the Cornell Center for Material Research (CCMR) and the Advanced Center for Electron-spin Resonance Technologies (ACERT).

Our students also play key roles in several multidisciplinary research teams lead by C&CB faculty, such as the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future and the Energy Materials Center at Cornell (Emc2). Located in scenic Ithaca NY, our students enjoy a truly unique environment that comes from attending a world class research institution set in a culturally rich, but intimate community.
