The faculty and staff take proactive roles in supporting our graduate students in their pursuit of academic positions. We conduct regular workshops and other activities to help students at all stages of the program develop their professional skills, and work closely with graduating students to ensure they are in the best position possible when they enter the job market.

Of Rice students completing the PhD program since 2003, roughly 74% currently have academic positions, as you can see from the record posted below. (This number does not exclude those who chose not to seek academic jobs.)

The information below is complete so far as we know, although developments may have occurred, and we welcome updates.

Code: TT=tenure track; T=tenured; O=other academic position; PD=post doc; NA=designations are not applicable.
