The Department has an excellent record of placing graduating and recent Ph.D.s into jobs, reflected in our rating of #1 in the world in the recent Academic Philosophy Data & Analysis (APDA) rankings, which ranks Ph.D programs in philosophy with a special focus on job placement. Ph.D. students are supported in their job search efforts by the Department Placement Committee, which works closely with them to develop their job market materials, prepare for interviews, and successfully secure good positions.

Detailed (and — so far as we know — complete) information about our placement record and the dissertation topics of all of our graduates (going back to 1990) is available below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Director of Placement, Professor Ram Neta, via email at

Dissertations and Placement Record, 1990–PRESENT

The list below includes all graduate students who have received the Ph.D. since 1990, plus current Ph.D. students who hold faculty or postdoctoral positions at other universities. It is accurate and complete to the best of the Department’s knowledge; however, the Department cannot guarantee its accuracy or completeness. The status of academic positions (visiting, tenure-track, permanent, tenured, etc.) reflects a position’s current status, if the position is presently held, and in other cases reflects the position’s status when it was most recently held. Unless otherwise noted, all positions are in Philosophy Departments.
