What are the career opportunities for LLSH Doctoral School graduates?

The elements below are the result of a survey conducted among graduates, 3 years after obtaining their PhD. For more details, you can visit the Doctoral College Employment Observatory page.

  • More than 90% of LLSH Doctoral School graduates have a job within three years of graduation. Among recent graduates:
  • just over 40% are employed in the research sector (research fellows, researchers, research engineers), and 42% are teachers. Others hold various positions in management, consulting, administration or in other sectors (associations, companies), or are self-employed.
  • 70% are employed in the public sector, in France or abroad.
  • just over 80% have a salaried job.
  • PhD graduates living in France can be found all over the country, with Isère (in particular the Grenoble metropolitan area) and Île-de-France being the major areas.

These figures are observational and do not predict the employability of the doctoral school PhD graduates outside the research and teaching fields. The PhD Career Center (Doctoral College career center) is available to help you with your career plan throughout your PhD; the skills portfoliotraining courses for professional integration, development of CIFRE theses, are all opportunities to diversify the employment prospects of our current and future PhD graduates, and to enable each graduate to construct his/her own identity for the job market.
