The Division of the Physical Sciences (PSD) is a division whose history is arguably the richest of any such division in any university in this country. The scientists of the Physical Sciences Division have advanced and defined new fields of discovery, and this tradition of innovation continues today. The division includes the academic departments of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geophysical Sciences, Mathematics, Physics, and Statistics. In addition, PSD includes a number of interdisciplinary research institutes and centers, including the Enrico Fermi Institute, the James Franck Institute, the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics, and the Institute for Biophysical Dynamics. Many of our researchers have joint appointments at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory, as well as joint affiliations with other Chicago based research institutions such as the Toyota Technological Institute of Chicago, Adler Planetarium, the Museum of Science and Industry and the Field Museum, to name a few.
