What to do after a math PhD as an international student? Advices needed.

Question

I did my PhD in pure math in a top 20 school in the US as an international students. After my graduation, I went to a different country for post-doc. The job market has been very difficult. I want to change my field to something more employable. Currently, I am looking at the following fields:

Applied or financial mathematics, Statistics, Engineering and computer science, Operations research

What are some programs that I can apply to currently in these fields? I know I am late in the application stage, but I really hope that I can still have a chance to return to the states. Thank you.

Due to personal reason, I have to stay in the US, but my visa does not allow me to. My goal is to return to the US, because I genuinely believe US to be home and love its people and culture.

The problem is that the job prospect of a pure math degree is poor. I am hoping to apply my mathematical background to a different field to make contributions. Currently, I'm considering to apply to PhD or masters programs in the following areas:

Applied or financial mathematics, Statistics, Engineering and computer science, Operations research

What are some programs that I can apply to currently in these fields? I know I am late in the application stage, but I really hope that I can still have a chance to return to the states. Thank you.

There aren't many PhD programs available at this time. The only school I know that is still available is Georgia Southern University.

Here is what they sent me

" We have a modern and coordinated Ph.D. curriculum in supply chain management that includes topical coverage on sourcing, operations management and logistics, solid methodological training in tools vital for high quality research as well as flexibility to tailor a portion of your program of study to your particular interests. For an overview of the program, please visit

Deadline is 15 March, so you still have some time left. Good luck!
