After completing a one-year sequence in general biochemistry, students select advanced courses from a range of offerings in chemistry, organismal biology and molecular biology. Advanced courses in biochemistry are available both at ESF and Syracuse University.
A wide variety of research topics are available ranging from plant physiology to biotechnology. Selective research topics include:
- microbial and algal production of biologically active natural products and their importance in cell biology (BOYER, GINER);
- chemical communication and recognition between organisms;
- marine algal toxins;
- trace metal/nitrogen physiology of symbiotic plants and algae;
- the structure/function of natural biopolymers;
- metabolic and protein engineering;
- and global gene expression studies of biopolymer-producing bacteria.

Assistantships and FellowshipsAssistantships and fellowships are awarded to students who have demonstrated scholarship and academic promise, and whose education and experience enable them to assist in the teaching mission of the college through laboratory or classroom instruction and research. Students who hold an assistantship must be enrolled for full-time study as defined by graduate policies, and be making satisfactory progress toward completing their degree.
Major funding for graduate students comes from two major sources:
- State University of New York Graduate Assistantships in support of the teaching mission of the college (a.k.a. GAs – otherwise known as “TAs”); and
- Research Project Assistantships funded by the Research Foundation of New York (RPAs).
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
