What is eJobs? 


eJobs is the most comprehensive database of jobs related to political science, accessible to members. The eJobs platform is updated daily with new job listings and candidate resumes, and is fully searchable by field of interest, employer or candidate name, region, keyword, position, salary, institution type, and most recent postings. APSA departmental members have access to post and view job listings on our eJobs site as a part of their departmental membership. 

APSA has implemented a new feature that allows job posters a way to share information with job candidates about the status of the hiring process for a particular job search.

This new benefit will inform the job candidate:

When Jobs are Posted
When Phone Interviews Begin
When Fly out Interview Calls Begin
When A Job Search has Concluded

eJobs Updates: APSA promotes non-discrimination practices across the discipline, including in the hiring policies of departments and institutions. To that end, eJobs is being updated to reflect this commitment, with the addition of two new fields on the eJobs submission form. Learn more about the update.   

How does eJobs work?

Job Candidates

Individual member job candidates:
Members have access to search and view full job listings. Additionally they may post their CVs for employers to view. The service is a member benefit offered exclusively to active APSA members. 

Non-member job candidates have limited access to eJobs. They can search the job listings and view titles, but cannot view the contents nor post CVs. We encourage non-member job candidates to join APSA.

Employers and Job Posters

Departmental member employers: 
Departmental members may search for and post job listings as well as view and search candidate CVs. 

Employers who are not epartmental members may advertise positions for a fee, and once they've advertised a position, can search the job candidate resumes. Alternatively, non-member employers can join APSA today and post job listings free of charge! To become a departmental member call APSA membership at (202) 483-2515.    

An individual may only list a job free of charge if they are an authorized user of a departmental or institutional membership. To find out if your department or institution has an APSA account or membership, please contact Member Services at [email protected] or (202) 483-2515.

APSA is pleased to offer a collection of resources intended to aid job candidates and search committees in the academic hiring process. These include a guide to professional ethics, APSA taskforce reports, and selected articles and online resources related to the academic job market. View these resources.
