Marketing Phd Jobs was established in 2011 and continues to run as a service to the field. The questions and answers below provide a quick overview of the site design. Be sure to check out the Resources tab for additional information on the job market.

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?

The site offers two distinct job feeds. The Jobs list includes any position for which a newly minted phd might be considered (Assistant, Postdoc, Clinical Faculty, and Open Rank searches). The Senior Jobs list includes tenured/senior faculty searches (including Department Chair and Chaired Professor searches). Additionally, each job feed is organized around a specific job market cycle.

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

No, but you’ll probably want to. Anyone can browse the job lists on MarketingPhdJobs.org. Users who create an account receive an individualized dashboard to manage application workflow. New positions appear in a personal feed, which can then be categorized as save (review later), skip (not interested, next), or mark as applied (done and done).

When should I sign up for account?

Marketing Phd Jobs organizes listings 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 find openings and track their application workflow easily. 

For those monitoring openings, the Email Digest account could be a good option. 

What’s the difference between free and premium accounts?

Free accounts include personalized job board feeds and access to all the openings MPJ has historically tracked — positions considering newly minted PhDs. 

If you’d like jobs to show up in your inbox rather than checking the site, sign up for the Email Digest account. This is also a great option if you’d simply like to support the site. 

For those interested in senior faculty positions, MPJ has added a premium account that aggregates positions recruiting faculty with tenure. This account is set to run two consecutive market cycles and includes the email digest service.  

Why does Marketing Phd Jobs charge for premium accounts?

Marketing Phd Jobs exists as a service to the field. Platform development was funded initially through generous grants from ISMS, MSI, and ACR. As the site has grown in popularity, operating and maintenance costs have grown to thousands of dollars per year. Charging for premium features creates modest revenue stream allowing MPJ to continue to create value for the field. 

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. 

How much does it cost to advertise on the site?

There is no cost to list positions open to junior candidates. Simply submit them using the link above, and we’ll add them (after reviewing, of course). To promote a senior faculty opening, MPJ charges a $200 listing fee. 

Why aren’t all senior faculty postings published on the site?

Senior faculty openings are part of MPJ premium services which covers operating and maintenance expenses for the site. 

Positions that departments would like to promote are listed publicly. We charge a $200 fee to list those openings. 

Positions announced elsewhere are aggregated for easy consumption (similar to the main job board). Candidates who sign up for a Senior Faculty account receive access to those positions in their personalized job feed (in addition to open rank positions listed on the main job board). Senior Faculty accounts are $200 and run for two consecutive market cycles. 

How do I cancel my subscription?

No need! Accounts are not a subscription. If you’d like to renew the Email Digest or Senior Faculty Listings for additional market cycles, simply sign up for the premium feature again.
