Most doctoral students and postdocs aspire to a career in academics. The training programs at Einstein prepare you perfectly for this career path. Read about Einstein alumni who became faculty in the United States and abroad:
However, because there is a limited number of available assistant professor positions, just a fraction of Ph.D.s have the opportunity to follow this career path. In addition, an academic career might not scoop the potential of many Ph.D.s.
Therefore, at Einstein, the graduate degree and postdoctoral experience also offer preparation for careers beyond academia. You acquire a unique skill set that includes critical thinking; problem defining and solving; tolerance for ambiguity; quantitative, presentation and writing skills; information-gathering and synthesizing; and teamwork.
The skills you acquire allow you to succeed in many fields, such as biotech (industry), pharma (industry), business, writing/media, marketing/consulting, tech-transfer/patent law, nonprofit, governmental and entrepreneurial.
The Einstein career & professional development program is designed to enhance the transferable skills and to shed light on traditional and non-traditional career opportunities that you may wish to pursue.
The following list gives you an overview of the major career opportunities for PhD's
