PhD graduates from the Department of Psychology and Behavioural Sciences have found employment not only within universities and research institutions, but also within common psychological professions like clinical psychology and work and organisational psychology. A survey from 2010 showed that all former PhD graduates were employed, about half of them within institutions with research obligations.
