Careers at Government Agencies for PhD Graduates

PhD scientists find careers with many government agencies concerned with the funding of science and with the regulation of technology produced by scientific research.

Science policy is the intersection between scientific research and public policy. Just as regulatory affairs professionals are needed in pharmaceutical and biotech companies, many careers are available for PhD graduates with government agencies to provide expertise in complex scientific, legal, and regulatory environments involving R&D, clinical research protocols, manufacturing, and compliance.
