Doctoral Students, Grads, & PostDocs:

You don't have to surrender your dream of a career in higher ed

The seemingly insurmountable challenge of landing a career in academic teaching or administration is well-documented. Research suggests that, depending on one's chosen field, as few as 10-17% of seekers will find a full-time teaching post. Even well-intentioned faculty, family, and friends regularly remind you that the odds are not in your favor. But keep in mind that newly vacant positions are announced on a regular basis. In each instance, someone will be hired. And, despite the odds, each of your college, graduate, and doctoral professors was hired into their positions. What's more, you personally know others who've made it into the ranks of academia. They did it.

Why not you?

No more excuses.

Welcome to


Plato founded the Academy in ancient Athens.  It was the first institution of higher learning in the Western world. There, great minds were formed and civilization reached its zenith. In that "school which would last 1000 years", the concept of the modern university was established. It is in this spirit that Academii came to be. Academii prepares scholars for jobs in higher education by providing courses that are online and on-demand.
