The COVID-19 pandemic is driving scientists, like the rest of society, to find new solutions to problems, so that we can work better together – through more sharing of data, expertise, equipment, and PPE.

We’ve been inspired to take this opportunity to try to create a long-term change that helps science work better for everybody.

We are scientists who want to change the way recruitment for scientific jobs is done to save labs and funders money.


jobRxiv is the free and international job board for scientists, by scientists.


jobRxiv is free and easy to use. Research budgets are often tight, yet other job boards charge hundreds of dollars for each advert. We think your research money can and should be better spent in the lab. We know your time is precious too, so no registration is required and posting a job only takes a minute.

jobRxiv is just for jobs in science. jobRxiv is dedicated entirely to science jobs – this isn’t an add-on to another website as an afterthought. It’s not a general job board where your advert will get drowned in the noise of millions of others.

jobRxiv is for all scientific disciplines, everywhere. Science is interdisciplinary and international, so local or subfield-specific job boards will miss many great candidates. jobRxiv is a one-stop shop for all scientific research jobs.


We’d love to hear about features that you’re keen for us to include, so please get in touch if you have any suggestions or want to know more.

 If you are currently advertising a job, please post it on jobRxiv now – it’s free and only takes a minute, with no registration needed!
