College of Arts and Sciences Department of Chemistry


Below you will find a list of the professors who are hoping to recruit students for the fall 2023 cohort. Each professor has a link to their faculty profile, a Zoom link with times available to chat, a link to a research poster, and a video explaining their research. Even if it isn’t a professor you had previously considered, oftentimes you can find that their research might be of interest to you. In addition to the faculty members listed below, the Department of Chemistry will be adding two additional faculty members by fall 2023. We will update you as we have details.

We are here to answer any questions you may have about our program. Please feel free to drop into the zoom links for Dr. Cliff Berkman, Chair of the Department of Chemistry, Dr. Greg Crouch, Interim Director of the Graduate Program, or Sarah Oesch Miller, Administrative Coordinator for the Chemistry Graduate Program during the morning or afternoon sessions.

If you have any questions, please email We’d be happy to help.

We will be scheduling a follow-up campus visit for March 4th, 2023. Details will be provided by the faculty during their Zoom meetings.

Chemistry Teaching Assistantships

For those of you who choose to attend graduate school at WSU, the first year requires that you perform the duties of a teaching assistant in our first-year general chemistry classes. Both domestic and international students are funded by assistantships while they are a graduate student as long as they maintain good academic standing. An assistantship includes a tuition waiver, a stipend (~$2300/month), and health insurance (valued at ~$2500/year). The following links will help describe the expectations surrounding being a TA:
