Placement

The Department offers assistance to students in every aspect of placement. Our Placement Officer counsels students about coursework and areas of competence, helps to establish evidence of teaching ability, administers the dossier for job applications and provides advice and follow-up in the interview process. Placement assistance is also offered to graduate alumni.

Below, our graduates are listed by the year of their graduation. (tt) stands for tenure track, (t) for tenured. For updates and corrections, please contact our Placement Officer, Prof. Ian Gold, who maintains the placement data.
