About

The Biology Program at The University of New Mexico has 39 tenure-track faculty, including a National Academy member, a MacArthur Fellow, and three Guggenheim award recipients

Overview

UNM's Biology Graduate Program

The Biology Program at The University of New Mexico offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. Our program is thriving—currently, more than 100 students are enrolled—and offers a variety of well-funded research projects that welcome graduate student participation. Our department provides an excellent atmosphere for graduate students to reach their full potential—rigorous, collaborative, and responsive to the need of the students. Graduate students are involved in departmental decisions, and the Biology Graduate Student Association has funds to support research in the department. Ultimately, our graduates are successful in advancing in their chosen careers, and leave UNM having developed friendships and collegial networks that last a lifetime.

We believe that a stimulating, intellectual collaboration between students and faculty is a necessary ingredient of a successful graduate program, and will lead to a very rewarding tenure—personally, academically and professionally.
