Why we need a PhD?

We like smart people! We don’t limit ourselves to people with a PhD though. We think we’re pretty smart, and none of us has a PhD. The truth is, we have a grant that will help us hire someone with a PhD from a prestigious university, which sounds like a smart thing to do! As it happens, we have three “top 100” lists to work from, resulting in a list of 157 (nice). Check your university at
