Career Center

Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society has a new section on its website devoted to supporting the careers of members. Located at, on the home page’s Opportunities section, the Sigma Xi Career Center is the place for members to post job openings, search for jobs or internships, and find, or volunteer as, a mentor.  

Collectively, the center comprises three websites: one for job seekers and recruiters, one for internship seekers, and one for those who wish to create a profile as a mentor or mentee. In addition to searching for positions, Sigma Xi members may use the Career Center to manage résumés, create job alerts, and view tips on résumé writing and preparing for an interview. Active members receive a 28% discount to post a job and a reduced rate for contacting candidates who are interested in their job postings. Members can sign in to the Career Center using their login information. 

In the Mentoring Center, mentors and mentees create profiles and explore others to connect with those who match the criteria they are seeking. It will allow students and young faculty to make valuable connections with mentors who have the best backgrounds to help them boost their careers. It also allows senior professionals to give back to the research community by mentoring rising junior researchers.

Members are encouraged to send feedback on the Career Center by email to
