Graduate Studies in Biology

The Biology graduate program is the largest and one of the most dynamic in the faculty. About 50 core and adjunct professors supervise thesis-based Masters and Doctoral student projects. At Western University, our tradition of excellence continues to attract outstanding faculty members, postdoctoral scholars and graduate students from around the world. Our graduate programs inspire a passion for the pursuit of knowledge, foster creativity and innovation, and prepare our graduates for successful and exciting careers. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to identify a prospective supervisor prior to applying to the graduate program. In an effort to assist applicants, the Department does its best to maintain a listing of which faculty members are currently interested in recruiting students to their laboratories. While not exhaustive, this list is a good resource. Please feel free to review current graduate opportunities. Western students can get some excellent advice about graduate studies here.
