Career Outcomes

Using a common taxonomy endorsed by the Coalition for Next Generation Life Science, trainee outcomes have been classified by workforce sector and career type:
Workforce Sector:
Career Type:
  • Academia
  • Government
  • For Profit
  • Nonprofit
  • Other
  • Unknown
  • Primarily research
  • Primarily teaching
  • Science (or discipline) - related
  • Not related to science (or discipline)
  • Futher training or education
  • Unknown/other

A derivation of this taxonomy has been adopted to classify by employment function and a taxonomy unique to Pitt was developed to identify faculty status within academia.

The location of work/training sites are represented both globally and nationally. View career outcome data »
