Overview of Graduate Education in Toxicology at Rochester
Over 160 students have earned the doctorate and about 30 are generally in residence. By the time they have graduated, students will typically have published several articles and have also become skilled at presenting their research finding to others. Our graduate training is broad enough to qualify students for a wide variety of careers. Some graduates choose to pursue academic careers, engaging in research and teaching at universities and colleges. Many do postdoctoral research before choosing their career.
Others work at research institutes and governmental agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency, the National Institutes of Health, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Consumer Products Safety Commission. Many are now in industry, particularly at chemical and pharmaceutical companies such as Dow Chemical, Johnson & Johnson, General Mills, Abbott Laboratories, and GlaxoSmithKline. Occasionally a graduating student will choose to attend law or medical school, or combine their toxicology with veterinary medicine or pharmaceutical science.
