Students in their final job market year are encouraged to for SIEPR dissertation research fellowships. Over the last few years, many of the graduates from various research groups have chosen to spend a couple of years as a post-doc in another research lab (usually not at Stanford) either in preparation for a research academic job or in profiting from further research experience before entering industry. Approximately two-thirds of our PhD students find challenging jobs in fundamental or applied research either in industry or national laboratories. Because of the litigation skills I developed during my fellowship, I eventually landed my dream job as a Housing Attorney in the Tenant Rights Coalition at Brooklyn Legal Services, where I represent low-income Brooklyn tenants in individual and building-wide cases.
