Abstract:     
This paper examines the hiring practices of Ph.D. — granting political science programs in the United States. It finds that hiring is closely related to one's Ph.D. alma mater as a form on institutional affiliation. Descriptive statistics for this impact are given and include that the top five programs place 20% of all R1 academics and the top eleven place 50%.
