Most doctoral students and postdocs aspire to a career in academia. 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, many PhDs choose other career paths. NIH Biomedical Workforce Report
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.
These skills assure your success in many fields, including 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 which you may wish to pursue.
The following list gives you an overview of the major career opportunities for PhD's. (More information available at science careers and Bio Careers)
