Welcome to the Microbiology Graduate Program webpage!  

     Within the Department of Biological Sciences at Idaho State University, 
we offer M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Microbiology.
     The Microbiology Graduate Program has a core of seven faculty members that lead vibrant and interdisciplinary research programs in a diverse array of areas that range from the biochemistry and molecular genetics of extremophiles to microbial controls of ecosystem scale processes.  Our research takes us to the most unique and extreme environments on Earth in places such as Antarctica, The Great Salt Lake, volcanic ecosystems in the "Ring of Fire" and a plethora of other thermal environments in North America.  
     If you are interested in our research and/or applying to our graduate programs, please browse the links at the left.  General inquires about the program can be emailed to micrgrad@isu.edu.  If you are interested in applying to our
program, we highly recommend that you contact the individual faculty members whom you are interested in potentially working with.  Please email individuals using the email addresses found on our faculty pages. Thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
