USC offers full-time employment to doctoral degree recipients

The University of Southern California, Los Angeles has created an alternative for recent doctoral graduates in the humanities and social sciences by offering a select number of them full-time employment for up to two years after graduating.

In exchange, the recent grads teach class discussion sections under a faculty member’s supervision, and they also teach a course of their own choosing.

USC administrators say the program offers additional courses for the university taught by strong graduates of their choosing and gives recent graduates the opportunity to strengthen teaching experiences.
