About HigherEdJobs

Who We Are

HigherEdJobs is the leading source for jobs and career information in academia. More colleges and universities trust HigherEdJobs to recruit faculty and administrators than any other source. Each month our site is visited by more than one million higher education professionals who rely not only on our comprehensive list of jobs, but also on our news and career advice.

What We Do

We owe our success to our knowledge and passion for higher education recruitment. Everything about our site - its design, search tools, career advice, and more - has been crafted to help college faculty and administrators advance their careers and to help employers attract the very best employees.

How We Started

HigherEdJobs was founded in 1996 by three university employees who felt there had to be an easier way to search and apply for jobs in academia. At the time, print ads still dominated how college faculty and staff searched for jobs - a process that was laborious, time intensive, and slow. The founders believed the Internet had the power to revolutionize higher education recruitment. So, they created HigherEdJobs as a central place on the web for higher education employers and professionals to connect.

Who We Serve

Last year more than 5,300 institutions advertised 159,000 open positions on HigherEdJobs. From small liberal arts colleges to large public research universities, no matter what type of institution you're recruiting for, or want to work at, it can be found on HigherEdJobs. When paired with the vast audience of highly-qualified higher education professionals visiting our site each day, we offer one of the most inclusive resources for hiring in academia.
