Online Advertisements

The site is a top hit for web searches using the keywords "minority", "diversity", "postdoc", "scientist", and "resources". Thus, publishing on this site will educate our targeted audience about your opportunity. We publish postdoctoral & professional job/opportunity advertisements for all employment sectors: industry, academia, government, non-profit, etc. Use this site to implement your institution's recruitment/ outreach/ diversity/ affirmative action strategic plan.

Our online advertisement rate card and payment options are found below.

Consider our Subscription packages to purchase both an online advertisement and access to our DiverseScholar Doctoral Directory.

Advertisement Rates for 2020 - 2021

A full-page ad for 1 month is the minimum choice ($400). Adding the graphic options (button, box) maximizes the visibility of your opening/opportunity to website readers. For example, 1 full-page and 1 button is $800 total for 1 month. The "1 month" column is gross rate per month in U.S. dollars. Discounts apply for 3 and 6 month terms. For the services listed as "Quote", the rate will depend upon the type of institution (size, academic, for-profit, etc) and posting desired (single job opening, multiple positions, etc). A "Featured Institution" status is potentially available for clients purchasing a box banner. For advertisement agencies, we offer a 15% commission. Rates are subject to change at any time.

Full Page Ads

Advertisement text (500 words) appears on a single page while all ads are included on the Job Listings page roster. The rates quoted are for one full-page so not necessarily only one opening. Thus, multiple positions can be combined on one full-page ad as long as the total text length is reasonably close to the 500 word limit. The job description text should be emailed to us as a text (.txt) or word document (.doc) along with any image files as attachments. You may include simple HTML formatting (such as "bold") as well as a small image such as an institution logo. The image should be at 300 dpi in TIFF, JPEG, PNG, or GIF format. Please do not embed images, photos, etc within the word document. Instead, email each image as separate file attachments. At these rates, only one round of editing is allowed to update the advertisement text so please proofread the text carefully before sending.

Note: advertisement text that greatly exceeds the 500 word limit warrants an additional $75 surcharge for every 500 words, i.e. +$75 for text length of 501 to 1000 words.

Each new listing appears at the top of every website page in the announcements section (header) as a one line description linking to the full text of your advertisement. The length of time for these announcement notices is at the Editor's discretion.

Note about Institutional Subscription features:
Single-line listings in bold that link to an institution's job board on the Job Listings page are only for Institutional Subscribers at the Silver or higher level as a temporary link while their Institution Profile page is being developed.

Read about other differences between a subscription's Institution Profile page versus the plain full page advertisements described above.

Note about advertisement archives:
Closed positions have had their links deactivated on the Job listings page. They remain listed as a record of our past clients as well as for institutions documenting their diversity action plans (see also these archives).

Image: Box Banner

example advertisement box bannerA "box banner" image is placed in the right sidebar. The box image should be 300 px width x 250 px height at 300 dpi (example in purple). Client provides the image (JPEG file) that will link to the full page ad. A "Featured Institution" status is potentially available for clients purchasing a box banner advertisement. Email us for details.

Email Marketing

In the first month of publication, a one-line title of the advertisement will be included in the email announcements to our postdoc contact database with a link to the online full-page ad.

The publishing schedule below lists deadlines when advertisement copy must be received by 5pm PST. If there is enough demand, then we may add a second mailing during the month. These email announcements drive postdoc readers to our website. Schedule subject to change without notice.

Payment Options

Payment must be received before ads will be published.

Buy advertisements online!. Submit your contact email address, advertisment text, and credit card payment information online.

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

For more complicated orders that are not covered by the online form, contact us to indicate 1) your advertisement option selection and 2) how to invoice your office by emailing us. Payment can be received by check (for purchase orders) _or_ credit card (processed using Stripe after you receive an email invoice).

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.

Note that the check/PO option drastically slows the advertisement publishing process since services are not granted until payment is received, i.e. waiting for the check to arrive by surface mail. Thus, online credit card payment is the fastest method.
