Ph.D. in Chemistry


Doctor of Philosophy or a Ph.D. in Chemistry is a five-year doctorate course in Chemistry. A doctorate in Chemistry prepares candidates for research and teaching careers, emphasizing basic, medical, physical, energy, materials, and environmental sciences. Research areas in the Chemistry department at GIET University cover a wide range of areas like Applied Chemistry, Biological Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry, Chemical Synthesis, Chemical Analysis, Materials Chemistry, and Theoretical Chemistry.

The eligibility criteria to enroll as a doctoral candidate in the Chemistry department of GIET University are

  • A Master’s degree in a relevant stream or an allied field with at least 55 percent marks in aggregate or
  • 5 CGPA on a 10-pointer scale.

NET/SET qualified candidates have an added advantage. Candidates need to sit for an entrance test followed by a personal interview.

The Ph.D. program is formulated towards developing within each candidate the ability to pursue creative scientific research work. The program aims to provide candidates with a background in advanced coursework and laboratory techniques to help them carry out independent and original research work.

Candidates who enroll for a Ph.D. in Chemistry at GIET University will get a supervisor who guides them in their research. The department is committed to providing academic assistance in the candidates’ research and scholarly pursuit.

Some of the vital research areas where our doctoral candidates focus their attention are:

Analytical and Bioanalytical

  • heterogeneous catalysis
  • theory and development of modern separation techniques
  • polymer dynamics and characterization

Chemical Biology

  • conducting single cell, organelle, and molecule analysis
  • designing novel bioactive nanomaterials
  • conducting in situ neurochemistry
  • synthesizing potent bioactive molecules including anti-cancer compounds and natural products

Chemical Theory and Computation

  • electronic structure theory
  • quantum dynamics
  • potential surfaces and force fields
  • chemical reactivity

Organic Chemistry

  • development of new synthetic methods
  • organic photochemistry
