Brandeis University, as a leader of research in the sciences, offers the rare combination of an internationally recognized research university in a medium-sized setting. This atmosphere promotes close interactions with prestigious faculty; collaboration among faculty and students; and, given our location just outside of Boston, a plethora of opportunities in the sciences.
