The PMB application deadline is Friday, January 1, 2016.

We encourage applications from students who have majored in biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and physics, although more diverse backgrounds in related disciplines are welcomed as well.

Promising applicants will be invited to a Visiting Weekend in early March 2016 to meet with faculty on both campuses, talk with students, and have a look around Baltimore.

How to Apply

Use the Johns Hopkins University on-line application, selecting biophysics under the School of Arts & Sciences. The GRE general test is required, but a subject test is not required. GRE institution code 5332; department code 0222.

Detailed instructions on how to apply can be found on the Graduate Admissions website.

If applying to more than one department, please complete a separate on-line application for each department.

Non-U.S. Citizen and Non-U.S. Permanent Resident Applicants

A training grant from the National Institutes of Health provides the first two years of tuition and stipend support for graduate students in the Program in Molecular Biophysics.  However, this support is limited to U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents.

International applicants will be required to demonstrate financial support for their studies through the Biophysics Supplementary Application Form as part of their application, and will be required to deposit funds covering the first two years of tuition and living expenses with the University prior to April 15.  If the funds are not deposited in a timely manner, any offer of admission to the Program in Molecular Biophysics will be null and void.  Applicants should take these requirements into consideration when deciding whether or not to incur the expense of the nonrefundable application fee.

All non-U.S. citizens and non-U.S. permanent residents applying to the Johns Hopkins Program in Molecular Biophysics must complete and submit a Biophysics Supplementary Application Form as part of their application by the application deadline. The form may be downloaded here.
