Doctoral Directory Features Promising Academic Job Candidates

Jan 12, 2010
The CIC Doctoral Directory now includes information on 239 candidates and degree recipients from CIC universities who are members of groups underrepresented in higher education. Nearly one quarter (23 percent) of the listings represent science and engineering fields, and another 23 percent are in the humanities. The remaining 54 percent of entries represent social science, education and other professional fields. 

 
Intended to aid hiring committees at CIC universities by helping them identify promising candidates for post‐doctoral and faculty positions, the Directory also serves to increase the visibility of CIC doctoral alumni among prospective employers nationally.

Underrepresented groups include American Indians, African Americans, and Latina/Latinos in any field of study. Asian Americans in social science and humanities fields are also eligible. To qualify for inclusion, a registrant must be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident who completed a Ph.D., MLS, or MFA degree at
one of the CIC member universities in any year. Candidates who expect to complete the degree within one year are also eligible.

The web‐based Directory is continually updated and listings can be filtered and downloaded. There is no charge to enroll in or to view/download the Directory.
