Career Outcomes of GGD Graduates
The Graduate School Career Guide provides a list of resources and events for graduate students. Cornell Career Services also provides resources for planning your career. The Office of Postdoctoral Studies provides information and services for those students who would like to pursue a postdoc position.
The majority of our graduates obtain a postdoctoral position in a university after graduating. However, some find employment in government, law and the private sector. If we look at employment 7-15 years post PhD, roughly 50% of our graduates are in academia, 35% are in industry and 15% are in government positions. You can explore program metrics on the Graduate School site.
