The Translational Plant Sciences Graduate Program (TPSGP) at The Ohio State University is accepting applications for the 2020-2021 academic year. This Ph.D. program offers full remission of tuition and fees, as well as a competitive stipend and additional professional development funds. TPSGP leverages the strengths of an interdisciplinary group of participating faculty to create a dynamic program which prepares students to become the next-generation of leaders in global agricultural biotechnology.
TPSGP differs from traditional graduate programs in that there are no prescribed courses required by the program. Instead, a compact and rigorous academic plan is tailored to the needs to each individual. In addition to an in-depth research experience, TPS fellows gain practical experience outside of academia through internships in settings tailored to their individual career goals. Internship opportunities include biotechnology industry, international research, science policy, science writing, agricultural extension, and teaching enhancement.
This program is designed for highly motivated students from a variety of undergraduate and masters level programs including chemistry, engineering, entomology, molecular genetics, microbiology, ecology, evolution, crop sciences, plant pathology and more. The application deadline is December 1st, 2019. For additional information please visit our website at https://tpsgp.osu.edu/.
