PhD in Developmental Psychology Alumni

The Developmental Psychology Program at NYU demonstrates extraordinary success in placing students in postdoctoral fellowships, academic positions, and research and policy organizations immediately upon graduation, with placements occurring in their final year of study. More specifically, over 90% of our graduates continue to engage in cutting-edge research in developmental science through traditional academic and research tracks. The remaining minority of students pursue work in related fields, including NGO’s (such as Promundo) and non-profit foundations and community agencies (including leading Head Start and Early Head Start programs). 


The data below depicts job placement information for students who graduated in the NYU Developmental Psychology Ph.D. Program within the past several years.
