Since the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences' first graduation in 1977, more than 1,400 graduates have gone on to practice science or pursue related endeavors with the training they received at Washington University. After graduation, 80% of students go directly into a postdoctoral fellowship. Many DBBS alumni currently hold academic positions as assistant professors, associate professors or full professors, while others occupy senior positions in industry and government.
A good number of our alumni pursue an eclectic and imaginative assortment of endeavors ranging from museum curator to science journal editor to intellectual property attorney to venture capital consultant. A Graduate Career Development Specialist is available to DBBS students to assist them in building employment skills and exploring career options.
