Overview

  • Three lab rotations during the first academic year. The rotations provide students the opportunity to explore different research interests prior to the selection of a Ph.D. supervisor. 
  • Coursework. All students are required to take 4 core courses during their first year and then additional graduate level coursework specific to their CMB Track.
  • ICMB Seminar Series: Students should attend the seminars held weekly. These seminars give students the opportunity to participate in discussions with faculty and peers about various topics and research problems.
  • Teaching. In the fall or spring of the second year, students are required to fulfill a one long-semester teaching assistant requirement.  A TA Training Workshop is offered annually and must be completed prior to the first TA-ship.
  • Qualifying Exam. To be admitted to candidacy for the doctoral degree, the student must complete preliminary examination in the spring of the second year. The exam consists of a presentation and defense of a National Institutes of Health grant proposal based off of the student's research. A Grant Writing and Presentation Skills course is required in the fall of the second year to help the student prepare for the qualifying exam.
  • Track specific requirements. All CMB students join a specific CMB track at the start of their second year. Each track has specific course requirements that must be fulfilled. Requirements vary, and tracks typically require 1-2 additional elective requirements.
  • The Institute for Cell and Molecular Biology hosts an annual retreat in the Texas Hill Country. The three-day event is an exciting opportunity for faculty, post-docs, and graduate students to meet and discuss science in an informal setting.
  • Conduct independent, original research under the direction of a faculty member; the results of this research constitute the dissertation.
