About Richard Gilder Graduate School of AMNH

Our accelerated Ph.D. program in Comparative Biology at the AMNH is designed to educate the next generation of biologists through an integrative approach that focuses on the history, evolutionary relationships, and interactions among organisms. The Richard Gilder Graduate School will be housed in a newly refurbished complex in the American Museum of Natural History at 79th and Central Park West in New York City. Training and research opportunities exist in systematic and evolutionary biology, paleontology, conservation biology, comparative genomics, computational biology, Earth history, anthropology, and biological and cultural diversity.  Global field work with AMNH faculty provides exceptional research opportunities for students.

This is the first such program offered at a museum in the Western hemisphere, taking advantage of the Museum’s internationally recognized collections and scientists. The AMNH houses more than 30 million specimens and artifacts, which students can investigate through formal coursework and independent research. Additionally, students will have access to the exceptional natural history library of more than 400,000 scientific volumes, and will be taught by more than 40 world-renowned curator-professors.
