Contents


The University of New Mexico is the hub of a strong and growing biophysics research environment in New Mexico. If you're looking for a graduate research experience that includes exciting cellular and molecular biophysics research and a beautiful southwest climate, then we encourage you to look at our many programs!

Investigators

How to Apply

The faculty and adjunct faculty carrying out molecular biophysics research at UNM and LANL belong to many academic programs. You can choose a graduate program best suited for you, or contact an investigator for guidance. Here are some of the programs:

About Albuquerque

Albuquerque is about a mile high and is in the Rio Grand Valley next to the Sandia Mountains. The climate is best described as sunny and dry. Combined with the beautiful scenery, this makes the University of New Mexico a great graduate school for those who like the outdoors. One of the unique things about Albuquerque is the International Balloon Fiesta, which fills the October skies with beautiful hot air balloons. You will also see roadrunners, cacti, and tumbleweeds around Albuquerque. Summer high temperatures average in the low to mid 90s, but very dry. Winter highs are in the mid 40s and sunny. The ABQ airport has free wifi internet and is growing, with direct flights to many airline hubs and Southwest destinations, including Baltimore, Oakland, Phoenix, Las Vegas, and others. Check out the wikipedia article for more information on Albuquerque and New Mexico.

Funding

The molecular biophysics research groups at UNM and LANL receive funding from diverse sources, including National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), Department of Energy (DOE), American Cancer Society (ACS), Human Frontier Science Program, and many others.
