The University of Chicago


Welcome from the Dean

Our graduate students and postdoctoral trainees play a pivotal role in the research and education missions of the Biological Sciences Division (BSD). We are immensely proud of our long history of trainee research excellence and of the notable achievements of our alumni. Our trainees benefit from immersion within one of the world’s great research universities, but of equal importance, our faculty benefit from the opportunity to collaborate with young scientists who bring to our institution the brightest of minds, unbridled enthusiasm, and a panoply of fresh ideas. The University of Chicago famously embraces the life of the mind; through graduate student and postdoctoral training we celebrate the transformative power of ideas and the opportunity to make a difference.
