Our graduates have gone on to research-oriented postdoctoral positions at institutions such as Oxford University, Caltech, MIT, NYU, UC Santa Barbara, the University of Arizona and the University of Minnesota. After their postdoc positions, many of them continue to pursue academic careers and hold tenure-track/tenured positions in the U.S. and around the world. Many of our graduates have also established very successful career paths in industry, government labs and research centers. They have taken positions in high-level tech companies, such as Boeing, Merck, Microsoft, Google and Amazon; investment banks, such as Barclays, JP Morgan Chase and Schonfeld Securities LLC; and in the government laboratories and research centers, such as NIST, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research and National Security Agency.
