Career paths post-PhD

I recently ran a poll on Twitter to learn more about the most common career paths after the PhD. While three of the options that I listed are perhaps the textbook options (postdoc, assistant prof – directly assistant prof – postdoc, industry), I learned that there are a variety of options out there. As a result, 1/3rd of all correspondents selected the “other” option. Some clicked on other because they just wanted to see the results, but the majority explained the different career path they followed. I also learned that in the humanities, postdocs are much less common.

Here you can find the wake of this poll:
