Analyzing the pathways of people who earned interdisciplinary research
doctorates in the United States in 2010, we generate three main findings while
controlling for gender, ethnicity, discipline, and age. First, individuals who
complete an interdisciplinary dissertation display near-term income risk since
they tend to earn nearly $1,700 less in the year after graduation. Second, students
whose fathers earned a college degree demonstrated a .8% higher probability of
pursuing interdisciplinary research. Third, the probability that non-citizens
pursue interdisciplinary dissertation work is 4.7% higher when compared with US
citizens. Our findings quantify the risks of interdisciplinary work and contribute
to policy debates
