Graduate Admissions

The Stanford Biosciences Admissions Office, not the Department of Biochemistry, processes applications for the Ph.D. program. All materials should be uploaded electronically to the online application. Graduate Admissions only requires admitted applicants who accept the offer of admission to submit official transcripts that shows their degree conferral. Please do not send or have sent any official transcripts to us at this time.

The Biochemistry Department does not require the GRE, but applicants have the option to submit GRE scores if they desire.

Fee waivers might be available to you for your application to Stanford Biosciences. Please learn more here.

Postdoctoral Positions

Please contact individual faculty members directly to inquire about the availability of postdoctoral positions in our labs.
