For a description of the ways in which the department assists graduate students seeking academic employment, see the final appendix, “Placement,” in the Philosophy Graduate Program Requirements handbook.
Listed below are recent initial tenure-track jobs (or, at institutions that do not have tenure, academic jobs with no fixed term) and some non-academic jobs obtained by our recent Ph.D.s. The years listed are those in which the jobs were obtained, which are not always the same as those of graduation. In a few cases updates are added to the listings, but this is unsystematic, with no pretense of completeness.
- Jeffrey Maynes, St. Lawrence University
- Michael Hicks, Miami University (Ohio)
- Bryan Miller, National Academies of Science: Institute of Medicine
- Matthew Holtzman, St. John’s College, Annapolis
- Ru-Yu (Karen) Yan, National Yang-Ming University, Taiwan
- Aaron Smith, Ayn Rand Institute

One went to law school, one returned to complete the Ph.D. after retiring from a military career, and continues to hold a number of military consulting positions.
