Chemistry faculty members are actively engaged in a wide variety of research projects. Active research programs are pursued in analytical, organic and biophysical/computational chemistry and biochemistry with an option in bioinformatics. The department currently brings in over five million dollars in external research funds annually.

Over 25 prestigious fellowships and assistantships are awarded by the department to outstanding Ph.D. students, including the Ambrose Pendergrast Fellowship, the David Withers Boykin Graduate Fellowship in Medicinal Chemistry, the Al Baumstark Award in Chemistry, the Robert “Pete” Pullen Family Scholarship in Analytical Chemistry, and the Harry P. Hopkins, Jr. Scholarship in Physical Chemistry. In addition graduate fellowships are offered in Molecular Basis of Disease (MBD) and Brains and Behavior (BB) research areas and include a stipend of at least $22,000 annually, waived tuition, and subsidized health insurance. Outstanding students may receive an initial offer of support as high as $25,000, with waived tuition and health insurance. Support is contingent on students remaining in good standing and maintaining satisfactory progress toward the degree. Inquiries concerning assistantships and other support should be made to the Graduate Coordinator in the Department of Chemistry. The Department of Chemistry accepts applications for all semesters. Early submission is encouraged for assistantship considerations.

Applicants may obtain additional information about the Department of Chemistry by contacting the Graduate Coordinator at chemgradstudent@gsu.edu.
