Doctoral Directory Online edition

Subscribers will have access to the password-protected online directory only for internal institutional recruiting use. Read summary demographics about the Doctoral Directory. Screenshots below are of the original version of the online Directory (updated figures forthcoming).

Usernames & Keyword Searches

Client institutions may share the one username account login information from the Bronze, Silver, and Gold subscriptions. However, the one username can not be used for multiple simultaneous use of the Directory. The Platinum and Diamond subscription levels provide more usernames for distribution throughout the client’s institution.

The Online Edition of the Directory has 3 record fields to allow subscribers to search by discipline:

The other database fields include:

Pre-defined “Field” keywords

*Full text search, PDFs & Emails

At the Platinum subscription level, the full text of a candidate’s CV/resume may be searched. However, to download CV/resumes, a Diamond subscription is necessary. The latter will also include a database field of candidate’s email addresses.

Example Candidates

Targeted Marketing Email Messages

Marketing email messages can be send on a client’s behalf to subsets of the Online Edition database. For this targeted email campaign, the client specifies the keywords used to segment the Doctoral Directory database by Field, Specialization, and/or Department. For security reasons, attachments in email campaigns are limited to 2-page PDF files. Of course, clients are free to create manually their own contact lists from the account addresses published in the candidate’s CVs/resumes. Communication about this service will be coordinated by the subscribing institution’s contact person. At the Diamond subscription level, client’s will have direct access to candidate’s email addresses.

Doctoral Directory Print edition with CVs/resumes

At the Gold level (or higher), subscribers will receive a print copy of the directory that includes candidates’s CVs/resumes. The directory is for internal institutional use only. Read summary demographic information about the Doctoral Directory.

Snapshots of the Print Edition show over 600 pages of CVs/resumes from the original version of the Doctoral Directory.

Subscription Institution Profile Page

The “Institution Profile” page describes your institution in general and lists links to multiple faculty/job openings on your institution’s Human Resources job board site. See this example.

The Institution Profile page remains published for the entire 12 month period of the subscription. Such a page can be updated occasionally throughout the year to refresh the links to the institution’s job board at the Editor’s discretion.

Separately, clients can purchase a la carte advertisements with rates dependent upon the number of months desired.

With each Institutional Subscription, the number and publication-length for full-page plain advertisements versus an Institution Profile are the following:

  1-month 1-year
Subscription plain ad profile
Silver 1
Gold 1
Platinum 2 1
Diamond 4 1

Differences between an Institution Profile page versus a la carte “plain” advertisements:

Phone Support

For our Diamond level subscribers, we are offering limited phone support hours to help clients understand and use our non-profit’s services (advertisements, institutional profile pages, Doctoral Directory, etc). Our new Manager of Doctoral Relations, Sarah Roy PhD, will be on call to answer client’s questions.

Note that Dr. Roy will not be using the Doctoral Directory on your behalf to find candidates. Instead, she’s available to help you learn how to use the Directory on your own. Dr. Roy’s time is occupied finding diverse postdocs to add to the Directory using our combined live and virtual networking methods. She is also maintaining the online Directory data such as processing CVs for full text searches, etc.

Also, we are still unable to accept credit card numbers by phone so please do not use the phone number for such inquiries or sensitive information.

Payment Options

Email us at to indicate 1) your Subscription Level and 2) how to invoice your office. Payment can be received by check (for purchase orders) or credit card (processed using PayPal after you receive an email invoice).

We can not accept credit card numbers by phone, FAX, or email.

A PayPal account is not needed to pay with a credit card. After you visit the online invoice, use the link (below the login fields) that states “Pay with a debit or credit card…” that allows you to manually enter your credit card information as well as an email address for confirmation.
