Graduate Students

We typically have opportunities for at least one new graduate student each fall. Because our work is highly interdisciplinary, we are open to considering students from any division of the chemistry department.

If you are interested in our group and have already been admitted to the graduate program in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh, please email Prof. Laaser to set up a time to meet. First-year students are also welcome to attend our weekly group meetings and/or complete a 3-week residency in the group to learn more about our research and lab environment; Prof. Laaser will discuss these opportunities in more detail during her CHEM 2700 talk in the fall.

If you have not already been admitted to the graduate program in our department but are interested in pursuing your Ph.D in polymer chemistry or polymer physics here at the University of Pittsburgh, please visit our department’s graduate admissions page for information on how to apply to the program.
