APA/AIA Placement Service: Positions for Classicists and Archaeologists
POSITIONS FOR CLASSICISTS AND ARCHAEOLOGISTS are published on or about the 15th of each month. The copy deadline is 12:00 noon (Eastern Time) on the 13th of the month from January through August and 12:00 noon (Eastern Time) on the 10th of the month from September through December. Institutions wishing to post jobs and candidates wishing to take advantage of the Service must register at this web site.
WELCOME TO THE 2012-13 PLACEMENT SERVICE SEASON
Important Reminders about Registering for the Placement Service
- This year it is possible for candidates to register as nonmembers, but nonmember fees are higher for both Placement Service and annual meeting registration.
- The Placement Service web site checks membership status against a static database of APA and AIA members. For security reasons, it cannot check the most up-to-date information in each society’s database. The static database is updated once a month at the beginning of the month, and the update that will take place in early November is the last one we will make before the annual meeting in January.
- To obtain the lower member rate for the Placement Service candidates should pay APA or AIA dues by October 31 and then register for the Service after the update to the system’s database (around November 10).
- It makes sense to register as a candidate as soon as possible. The cost for members is only $20. If an institution decides to interview a candidate who is not registered with the Service, we require the institution to tell that candidate to register first.
