Research Opportunities

The ASRC is a university-wide facility open for use by faculty, students, and research staff across all 25 CUNY campuses and schools. We offer some of the most advanced instrumentation available, and in many cases the ASRC is the only place in the region where this technology is available for use and training by academics and industry.

The ASRC was created to break down some of the traditional walls in science and incubate a culture of collaboration and interdisciplinary research. We offer a number of dynamic research opportunities for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students.

The ASRC is an unprecedented university-wide research endeavor that is opening opportunities for scientists across CUNY.

Each of the ASRC’s five initiatives boasts a director and three faculty members for a total of 20 core researchers. These innovative teams focus on collaboration across disciplines, and each of the 20 ASRC resident scientists also has a faculty appointment at a CUNY senior college. In addition to its 20 faculty positions, the ASRC also provides opportunities for about 50 technical and support staff.
