Whether you’re at the beginning of your graduate studies or nearing the end, you may be wondering what career options are open to you with a Duke Ph.D. The Graduate School can help you answer that question with new Ph.D. career outcomes data.
Most biology graduate programs are designed to train students to become a professor or to lead a research program. But the number of students being trained far exceeds the number of open positions, and academia is no longer the most common path for PhD students in the sciences. Duke’s Biology faculty and students responded to that challenge with Biology Bootcamp 2.0.
The program from the Duke Initiative for Science and Society offers graduate students the opportunity to write policy briefs, get experience communicating with lay audiences, and learn how politics affect research.
