Faculty Row Has Now Become the Leading Platform for Academics Across the Globe
Initially a generic hub for scholars, Faculty Row gained traction by aggregating a fragmented academic job market. It has also helped introduce academics to one another through "soft introduction" and has produced a growing number of white paper press releases on national and global events.
Super Professors was launched in 2012 by Faculty Row, and has professors from over 110 countries. Super Professors emphasizes its ability to call upon its bullpen of experts for "on demand" knowledge. The network is membership-based and boasts professors from every major academic institution in the northern hemisphere.
Faculty Row is a website for accomplished academics. It has a private functional backend for messaging, however its front end is different. It allows academics to highlight, customize, and showcase accomplishments. Members are also allowed to search for both domestic and global academic jobs through a variety of options. This can be done through its partner company and largest aggregator of PhD jobs outside of the United States, www.Jobs.ac.uk. Faculty Row has apparently filled the void left by other academic sites by capturing the entirety of academics needs.
In January of 2016, Faculty Row partnered with one of the largest hotel corporations in the world, Carlson Rezidor Hotels. This partnership allows Faculty Row members who travel, a discount below lowest available web fares at all Carlson Rezidor Hotels internationally. This is done through a simple booking on Faculty Row’s platform.
Here are some quotes from Faculty Row members:
