Prospective Ph.D. students interested in pursuing research at the intersection of protein engineering, materials science, and chemical biology should apply to the Columbia Department of Chemical Engineering graduate program. Current graduate students in the Department of Chemical Engineering interested in interdisciplinary training in polymer science and biomaterials should reach out to set up a meeting.


Prospective students with a background in chemistry, biochemistry, physics, or chemical engineering interested in pursuing a M.S. degree in Chemical Engineering - particularly with a concentration in Biotechnology and Biopharmaceuticals should apply to the Columbia Department of Chemical Engineering M.S. program. Current graduate students in this program interested in research in protein and polymer engineering, or more broadly in biotechnology, should contact Prof. Obermeyer using the form below. Strong preference for placement will be given to students that fill the form out prior to November 1st.
