The Mellon Foundation has launched the MMUF Search Tool for Fellows on the Job Market to provide college and university search committees with a direct means of accessing information on MMUF fellows who are on the academic job market, and MMUF fellows with a means of sharing their information with search committees. The Search Tool includes MMUF fellows who are enrolled in the fifth year or beyond of their PhD programs, along with fellows who have earned PhDs within the last three years. In compliance with U.S. and international privacy law, the Search Tool is password-protected and includes only fellows who have given the Foundation their active consent to be listed; thus the Search Tool does not include the full cohort of late-stage MMUF graduate students or recent PhDs.
If you are an MMUF fellow in the fifth year or beyond of your PhD program, or an MMUF PhD who has completed your PhD within the last three years, and you would like to list your information in the Search Tool, please contact Liz Foley to grant the Foundation your written permission for inclusion.
If you are a faculty member or administrator at a college or university and wish to have access to the Search Tool in order to contact candidates for faculty searches, please email Liz Foley to request login credentials.
For more on the critical importance of intentionality in institutional efforts to hire diverse faculty, please see MMUF Director Armando Bengochea's August 2018 essay in Diverse Issues in Higher Education.
