30% of Doctoral Directory postdocs obtained faculty jobs
Postdoctoral members of our Doctoral Directory recruiting database get jobs! Of our first cohort from 2011-2012, approximately 30% are now tenure-track faculty. This includes research universities such as Association of American Universities member institutions.
Below is a roster of current faculty webpages of Doctoral Directory postdoc alumni from our 2011 thru 2014 cohorts. We also list the institution where the individual was a postdoc at the time that they were a Doctoral Directory member. For example, Dr. Omar Z. Fisher was an MIT postdoc in our database; and, he was an Assistant Professor at Temple University.
For comparison, a 10-year analysis of Stanford PhD graduate students found that only 30% were tenure-track faculty. The 30% outcome from the DiverseScholar cohort is similar to this very selective Stanford cohort.
Consider our Subscription packages for access to our DiverseScholar Doctoral Directory of current postdocs seeking employment. Our Doctoral Directory can be used to facilitate diversity outreach efforts especially for faculty recruiting.
To our knowledge, no other diversity publisher/recruiter has such job outcomes data. Note that postdoc's partially redacted CVs were published online in 2012 as evidence of Doctoral Directory membership at that time.
Before deciding on other candidate databases, please ask to see comparable demographic and alumni job outcomes data to calculate the best return on your time and financial investment.

Individuals in career sectors outside of academia do not necessarily have public lives. Thus, we will only publish links to their online profiles after we obtain permission.
