The Graduate Program in the Division of Biology at Kansas State University (ksu.edu/biology) is currently accepting applications for M.S. and Ph.D. students for the Fall of 2017 semester.
We have a strong core of 29 tenured or tenure-track Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology faculty. MCDB faculty members are united by their interest in the commonalities of life at the cellular and molecular level in areas including invertebrate developmental biology, genetics, microbiology, immunology, virology, plant biology, vector biology, and cell biology.
In addition to strengths in MCDB, the Division of Biology is composed of nearly 60 faculty that span the biological sciences (i.e., cellular biochemistry to ecosystem function). This breadth of scientific inquiry within one department makes K-State a unique environment for graduate study through the exposure, perspective, and collaborations that exist across via intra- and inter-departmental interactions.
Kansas State University is located in the heart of the Flint Hills, home to the last large tracts of tallgrass prairie on the continent.
Graduate students can take advantage of a wide variety of cutting-edge laboratory facilities in the division and elsewhere on campus. Our graduate program provides a broad, comprehensive, yet flexible graduate training in Biology. Kansas State University and the city of Manhattan, Kansas is a safe and inclusive community located in north central Kansas, about 2 hours west of Kansas City.
