As summer winds to a close, many of our 2021 Ph.D. alums are heading out into the world and moving on to their next adventures.
Nearly 87 percent of our graduates are placed in university positions, with 47 percent placed in top-tier research institutions. About 13 percent find careers in government, private or nonprofit sectors.
We’re immensely proud of our graduates, especially given the unique circumstances in which they finished their time in SJMC. We know they will continue to do great things wherever they go.
Here are the new roles some of our graduate alums are taking on:
Helen Cho, Ph.D. 2021 – Assistant Professor, University of Richmond
Ornella Hills, Ph.D. 2021 – Assistant Professor, Andrews University
Juwon Hwang, Ph.D. 2021 – Assistant Professor, Oklahoma State University
Sunghak Kim, Ph.D. 2021 – Postdoc at Yonsei University College of Medicine
Jiyoun Suk, Ph.D. 2021 – Assistant Professor, University of Connecticut
Jiyoun was recently featured in an article from UConn Today, “New Faculty Bring Antiracism and the Environment to the Forefront”.
Jeff Tischauser, Ph.D. 2020 – Senior Research Analyst, Southern Poverty Law Center
Chau Tong, Ph.D. 2021 – Postdoc, Cornell University
Congratulations to all!
