Marketing Phd Jobs was established in 2011 as a service to the field. The following Q&A provides a quick overview of how things work. 

What is Marketing Phd Jobs?

Marketing Phd Jobs organizes information about the marketing academic job market. The goal is to make useful information easy to find.

How is the site organized?

Marketing Phd Jobs tracks positions according to when the position begins. Candidates typically enter the market with a specific target start date, so that’s how we organize market cycles.

The site offers two distinct feeds. The Jobs list includes any position for which a newly minted Phd might be considered (Assistant, Postdoc, Visiting, Clinical Faculty, and Open Rank searches). This was the original focus of the site. In 2021 we added a Senior Jobs list that highlights openings for tenured, senior faculty (including Department Chair and Chaired Professor searches).

Do I need to create an account to use the site?

No, but you’ll probably want one. Users who create an account get an individualized dashboard to manage application workflow. New positions appear in a personal feed. You can make private notes within listings. New jobs show up in your personal feed and can be categorized as skip (not interested, next) or applied (done and done). Additionally, the personalized dashboard integrates all jobs into a single feed with filters to include or exclude Senior Jobs or to display only tenure track roles. looking for a senior openingAccounts also include the option to receive a weekly email digest of new listings every Monday.

When should I sign up for account?

Listings are organized by market cycle. So, you should sign up for an account when you’re on the market and actively sending out applications. It’s fine to sign up at other points too. But the site is designed primarily to help candidates track and manage application workflows. For those monitoring openings more passively, the weekly digest may be valuable.

How do I submit a job?

Click the Submit a Job button at the upper right and complete the form. Submitted positions are reviewed by a site admin prior to appearing on the site. You’ll receive an email confirmation when you click submit and another when the job is added.

How much does it cost to advertise on the site?

There is no cost to list positions. MarketingPhdJobs.org exists as a service to the field.

Cool. What else is on this amazing site?

On the Resources tab you’ll find the MPJ Archive and a collection of Reports. Postings from the most recent market cycle display for those not logged in. Those with accounts have access to the full archive of listings, which date to 2011. These can be viewed by market cycle or by university. The Reports section provides the annual Marketing Labor Market Report (dating back to 2008); Ethan and Cesar have run this since 2014. There are also links to AMA’s Who Went Where Reports (those are really great and produced by AMA’s DocSIG). The Reports section is one stop shopping for great info on hiring.
