Our firm is in a growth cycle and is proud of its strong team of colleagues. The pace of the work is challenging but humane.

The position may include any or all of the following: journal editing, acquistion and editing of manuscripts for new scholarly works, development of scholarly reprint series, development of text and teaching materials for high school and university use, and development of on-line/on-demand publishing ventures. The position also involves substantial work with Bolchazy-Carducci's projected new line of general trade books designed to foster responsible popularization of the Classics. An orientation toward promoting the Classics is therefore essential. The successful candidate preferably will have earned a PhD in Classics and have a strong interest in publishing. Experience in publishing and/or bookselling is a consideration, but certainly not necessary. Good people skills, however, are a must, since the position requires close work with a wide variety of professionals both in Classics and in the publishing industry.
