Associate Director of Career Coaching and Education - PhDs & Postdocs

Salvatore Cipriano

Tell us something interesting about your background.

I'm a historian by training and my graduate experience led me from Boston and New York to Britain, Ireland, Europe, and beyond--including a brief stay in southern California. In all of these places I got to engage with PhD students, early career researchers, and established scholars who did amazing research but who were also attempting to navigate the post-graduate world and how their graduate training brought value to professions beyond the academy.

What has led you to your current role?

After adjuncting at a few different colleges, I returned to my alma mater and began working in career services, where I supported students interested in legal, government, and international affairs careers. Through this work, and based on my experience in graduate school, I took a real interest in working with graduate students and began doing more to support master's and PhD students on career development.

In your spare time, what do you enjoy doing?

I enjoy reading, writing, running, visiting libraries and book shops, listening to punk and alternative music, and watching all manner sports, especially the New York Yankees and Boston College Eagles.
