Recruiting Diverse Ph.D.s

This is the premier web portal for reaching diverse postdocs. Our services help diversify candidate pools for your open employment positions. Contact us at to implement your institution’s recruitment/ outreach/ diversity/ affirmative action strategic plan.

Our internal, curated email contact list was created from our own research as well as by aggregating other public diversity talent pools such as the UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellowship Program, Ford Fellows, etc. We describe our outreach methods for finding diverse postdocs in this abstract. Recognizing that postdocs turnover frequently, we keep our contact list current with only active email accounts. To have your job description included in the monthly email announcements to our membership database, please see advertisements page.

Our DiverseScholar Doctoral Directory was created by having postdocs from our email contact list respond to a survey and send us their CV/resume. A selection of survey respondents are pictured at right. Demographic information about our first Doctoral Directory cohort is below.

See the Subscriptions page for accesss to the online and print versions of the Doctoral Directory.

From a NSF InfoBrief describing the 2009 national postdoc population: In the Science and Engineering fields, only 44.5% of postdocs were U.S. citizens or permanent residents and only 34.7% were women. Thus, our Doctoral Directory is enriched for domestic (>90%) and female (>60%) postdocs relative to the national pool.

New: career outcomes from the first cohort of our Doctoral Directory in our slide presentation below from the Keeping our Faculties of Color Conference. Before investing in another “faculty candidate” resume database, ask about the alumni outcomes of the database members.
