Kratz Posted July 1, 2019 Share Posted July 1, 2019 Hey everyone, I noticed a trend were many American PhD grads from the Humanities and Social sciences move to Europe to take an academic job. For instance, I met a bunch of NYU students(Philosophy and Political science Phd's) who couldn't get a job in America but where able to move to Uppsala university and get an assistant professor tenure track job. I have also met another student who got a PHD in Psychology and moved to Tilburg University and another who works at Institut Jean Nicod. I wonder if this is relatively common for people who graduate with a phd from top 15 universities(bare in mind that its only 8 people per program and a lot of people drop out of their phd) or is it something rare that happens in exceptional cases. For instance, I'm currently getting my CELTA certificate and with it, it's easier to get jobs abroad(Asia) that it is in America so most people end up going abroad.
