Hire a GW PhD

In recent years, George Washington University has made a large investment in the Political Science Department and its commitment to training graduate students for research and teaching careers. Our recent graduates reflect this commitment, with many having published in leading journals, presented papers at professional meetings, and secured a variety of fellowships and awards. We are confident that these ABDs and recent PhDs have bright political science futures. We hope you will consider hiring one of them.
