Please describe why someone applying to graduate school who is interested in a female-friendly department should choose your department.
Although in the minority, there are several female scientists (tenure track and research faculty as well as research scientists) in the Department and in the associated research programs, as through the Space Science Center and the Material Science Program. Several of them lead substantial research projects, such as leading instrument teams on space missions, and thus serve as role models.
The Department welcomes women graduate students and treats equal with men. The UNH Graduate School and the Graduate Student Organization are pro-active in making UNH a good place for all graduate students.
From the perspective of our female graduate students, they feel welcome here and are positive about the atmosphere for female students in the Department and the College.
Please include the name of faculty or staff member and an email they can be reached at for further questions.
