Hi everyone, Long time lurker here coming out to make my first post. I just finished my B.Sc. in Physics and I am getting ready to apply to graduate schools in the Fall of 2015. I did some undergraduate research in experimental biophysics (understanding the statistics of the transport of insulin granules) and I really liked it so I am looking to do more of it in a PhD program. It seems that there are PhD programs specifically designed for Biophysics. On the other hand, there are faculty members in physics departments who do biophysics. I am torn as to which program to apply to. I was wondering if anyone went through this and what they decided on? Also, if I wanted to be a professor, what kind of department will I end up in if I were to do a PhD in Biophysics? Its not clear to me whether I'd end up in a Physics, Chemistry, or a Biology department. I know physics departments very rarely hire someone without a traditional Physics PhD. On the other hand, I am inclined to apply to Biophysics programs because they do not require the Physics GRE and I feel its generally less competitive. Thank you.
