Melanie Sinche

Senior Research Associate


Melanie Sinche is a Senior Research Associate in the Labor and Worklife Program at the Harvard Law School. She has served as the Founding Director of the FAS Office of Postdoctoral Affairs at Harvard University, held the same position at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and served as a consultant to the National Institutes of Health in building the Career Services Center for over 9,000 intramural trainees. 

She is currently studying employment patterns of recent science and engineering PhDs to create a visual map of career clusters. This study will also identify the skills and experiences required to enter different scientific occupations, and will determine whether these were developed in the educational/training period of the PhD or on the job, thus contributing to the national discussion of efficacious training of PhD-level scientists and engineers.

Melanie received her Bachelor's degree from Colgate University, and graduate degrees from the University of Michigan and North Carolina State University. She is also a National Certified Counselor with a career development focus.
