Search Tips

Here are some useful tips to help you with your keyword searches. Once you've run a keyword search, you can apply filters (job category, institution, location). You can also browse jobs by simply selecting a filter.

Type your word(s) or phrase(s) into the Keyword box. Searches are not case sensitive, so you don’t need to capitalize. There are several ways to construct your keyword search:

  1. ENTER ONE WORD

    Your search will return every job posting containing that word.

    Example: architecture
  2. ENTER A PHRASE:

    Enclose a phrase in quotation marks to return only job postings containing that exact phrase.

    Example: “Medieval history” or "tenure track"
  3. MULTIPLE KEYWORDS OR PHRASES:

    If you enter several words/phrases, your search will return only job postings containing all of the words/phrases.

    Example: tenure track medieval history
  4. SEARCH TIPS:

    Use the plus (+) symbol to include words and/or the minus (-) symbol to exclude words

    Examples:

    business +accounting -marketing

    student +services -admissions
  5. MULTIPLE PHRASES:

    Enter several words/phrases separated by the word OR to find every job posting containing at least one of the words/phrases

    Examples:

    "tenure track" OR tenured

    "distance education" OR "online learning"
