Masters and PhD Program in Molecular Biology at Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University: The Graduate Program in Molecular Biology welcomes students from a variety of educational backgrounds. Students select courses in a variety of disciplines and carry out research rotations with faculty members in Molecular Biology and associated programs and departments.
- QUANTITATIVE AND COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY
Admission & Financial Support
The Department of Molecular Biology reviews applications each year for students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Molecular Biology. We encourage applications from students of diverse academic backgrounds.
A complete application includes:
- A completed web-based application.
- Transcript – scanned version obtained from your college or university.
- Official GRE exam scores from ETS. While the GRE General Test is required of all applicants, a Subject

- Official TOEFL exam scores from ETS for students whose native language is not English and who have not
received their undergraduate education in a U.S. college or university. For TOEFL scores, use Institution
- Three (03) letters of recommendation.
Molecular Biology, Neuroscience, QCB (Quantitative & Computational Biology), and EEB (Ecology & Evolutionary Biology) offer a joint admissions process called Biology@Princeton. This website provides information on how to apply to multiple programs. If you are applying only to Molecular Biology, you can instead proceed directly to Graduate Admission.
All students admitted to the program receive tuition, health insurance, and a generous stipend. The stipend for the 2016-17 academic year is approx. $33,000.
Graduate students will be encouraged to apply for fellowships at some point during their graduate career. Fellowship opportunities are available from the following:
