Upstate Medical University Fellowship

Dear Colleague:

The Department of Biochemisty and Molecular Biology of SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, NY is recruiting highly qualified students for graduate fellowship positions for the 2015-2016 academic year.  We offer a competitive stipend (currently $24,512 per year) with a full waiver of tuition.  Because no teaching or administrative duties are required, our students can focus fully their efforts on graduate courses and laboratory research.  Most of our students, upon receiving their Ph.D. degree, are accepted for postdoctoral positions into first-rate laboratories both in major research centers and in the biotechnology industry.

Our Department and our university have changed dramatically over the past several years.  Both the department and university have focused on areas that are at the forefront of modern life sciences.  The faculty members in our department are well-funded by National Institue of Health and other funding resources.  We have a highly interactive research environment that provides training opportunities for students intersted in biochemistry, structural biology, molecular genetics, genomics, cell biology, cancer biology and visual science.  Those interested in these areas of research in using model organisms such as E. coli, yeast, flies, mice, frogs and cultured human cells for understanding the molecular mechanisms of cancer, neurodegeneration, diabetes visual disorders and aging are strongly encouraged to apply. 

The seven research departments and programs of SUNY Upstate have merged into a single graduate admissions program that allows students to access every faculty member at Upstate.  Students can apply to our interdepartmental Biomedical Science Prgram (BMS) and then join a department after the first year.  If they would like to focus on Biochemsitry from outset, they may apply directly to the department, though most students now enter through the BMS Program.

Our brochure, describing the graduate program in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the SUNY Upstate Medical University, is available online at our department web site ( where student can request further information or an application.  Students may also browse our BMS Program web site (
