What Are You Going to Do With Your PhD in Statistics?

Posted to Statistics  |  Nathan Yau

Statistics graduate students at Columbia University are hosting a symposium on careers for PhDs in statistics.

Current confirmed speakers include industry statisticians at Google, AT&T Labs-Research, National Institutes of Health, and Pfizer, Inc and academic statisticians from statistics, marketing, and biostatistics departments at Columbia University, University of Pennsylvania and Rutgers University.

The Symposium will be held at Columbia University in New York on April 4, 2008 from 1-5pm. A wine and hors d’oeuvre reception will follow so that there will be ample time to chat informally with our guests, and a student mixer after that is also in the works.

The conference is free and they’re offering a $40 travel reimbursement for students who would like to attend. Consider going if you’re in the area. It should be interesting. Here’s the online registration.

If anyone actually does end up going, let me know. I’d love for you to share your experience here. For the current and future stat PhDs or masters students, what are you doing or planning to do with your degree? Other than framing it, I’m still searching for my answer.
