Biosciences Division


Educational Opportunities

The Biosciences Division has developed and maintained a strong commitment to education. We have maintained relationships with many educational institutions and organizations. Many of our student/faculty programs are administered through Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU). This includes programs for undergraduates, graduates, postgraduates, faculty and some pre-college students.

The UT/ORNL Graduate School of Genome Science and Technology takes advantage of the unique opportunity that the University of Tennessee and the Oak Ridge National Laboratory have for interaction and collaboration. Students will be trained in emerging areas of genome science, with emphasis on mammalian genomics, structural biology, proteomics, computational biology and bioinformatics, and bioanalytical technologies.

Center for Interdisciplinary Research and Graduate Education (CIRE) offers one of the first interdisciplinary PhD programs in energy science and engineering. CIRE brings together extensive and complementary UTK and ORNL resources to increase science, technology, engineering, and mathematics academic and research activities of national significance focused on energy-related science and engineering.

Employment Opportunities

The Biosciences Division has employment opportunities based on funding support that is available in our different Research areas. You can check out our current openings along with other employment opportunities on the ORNL web site.
