In the past five years, I have talked to a lot of people about why they chose not to pursue academic jobs after graduate school––a choice that is more common than people assume.

The Early Research Initiative and the PublicsLab invite applications for new research fellowships for Summer 2019. These $4,000 fellowships will be offered to Graduate Center Ph.D. students from any program conducting research with a distinctive interdisciplinary turn whose main question is driven by public needs and priorities.
