PhD from a "regular" University Hi, So I recently started grad school going for a PhD in Physics at Oregon State University.So far It seems like a decent program and the research is interesting. I've just started thinking about what kind of opportunities I'll have after I get my PhD though. Every professor here and at my undergrad seemed to have a degree from an Ivy Leauge school. Where then do students like me, that aren't from an Ivy Leauge school, go after a PhD in physics? Is it just that I can go to some of the same schools but not get tenure like the Ivy leaugers? Or am I basically stuck going into industry or research at very small schools? Obviously it depends on how well I do here as well. If I do very well here could it be possible to get a job helping with research at say, CERN? Thanks.
