 :: Posted by American Biotechnologist on 09-08-2011

Hey grad students. Check out these facts:

  • fewer than 20% of PhDs in the biological sciences have been moving into tenure-track academic positions within 5–6 yr of receiving a PhD
  • only 14% of these PhDs hold tenure-track positions
  • 43% of PhD graduates are employed full-time in nonacademic settings
  • 80% of American PhD graduates do NOT hold tenure track positions despite the fact that ALL are trained to pursue the tenure track dream

These, and many other interesting tidbits were blogged about in a post by BioJobBlog earlier this week. If you are thinking about what job possibilities are open to you after graduating be sure to educate yourself and check out the BioJobBlog!
