Ph.D. Chemistry New Jersey Institute of Technology




Course info


Chemistry Ph.D. students are expected to demonstrate creative thinking, self-motivation and a commitment to achieving quality in their research product. Students in the chemistry doctoral program address real problems, have strong interactions with their advisors and solve pertinent chemical and environmental problems through intensive research in cutting-edge areas.

One of the primary objectives for students of the Chemistry Ph.D. program is the successful completion of an original research project in close mentorship by their research adviser and the presentation and defense of the Ph.D. dissertation. This intense research experience provides the education and training necessary for the student to substantiate his/her expertise and develop the skills necessary to become an independent professional. By the end of their Ph.D. work, students will have exhibited and/or engaged in the following:

  • Focused, Independent Research: Students will conduct advanced independent research in their focus of chemistry, either on-site or at the professional laboratories where they work.
  • Mastery of Scientific Communication: Students’ Ph.D. research culminates in the writing and presentation of the dissertation for examination by a committee consisting of a minimum of five members, including the research adviser.
  • Career Readiness: Graduates will exhibit thoroughness in their research and possess highly-advanced working knowledge in their specified field to compete for top positions in industry, government and academia.


Within six months of passing the qualifiers, the student must give an oral presentation to their research committee, detailing the background of the selected research project, and the student's plans for carrying out the research. The committee must formally approve the proposal. The committee may meet at other times to follow the student's progress, at the request of the student and the research advisor.
