Hiring a GW Ph.D.

In recent years, The 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. The individuals who are on the market this year reflect this commitment. As you will see, many of them have 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. Please do not hesitate to contact Professor Danny Hayes, our director of graduate placement, or any of our faculty members if you have questions about any of our candidates.
