Graduate and Postdoctoral Biology

Graduate students in the life sciences benefit from working under the direction of accomplished mentors in an outstanding training environment. They play important roles as members of research teams with Division faculty, postdoctorates, and undergraduate students. Brown graduate students have a reputation for being equal partners in innovation and discovery, contributing to some of the highest scientific achievements to come out of Brown laboratories.

The Division's five basic science departments all participate in graduate training.

Graduate study at Brown comprises more than 15 degree programs and varied opportunities in postdoctoral scholarship. We offer comprehensive course work leading to the master of science (ScM) and doctor of philosophy (PhD). There is also a joint MD/PhD program offered in conjunction with Alpert Medical School.
