The SCS Placement Service serves candidates in the fields of classical studies and archaeology who are on the job market as well as institutions seeking to hire such candidates. The SCS welcomes job listings that reflect the full range of opportunities for students and teachers of classical studies and archaeology today, from employers seeking scholars of language, literature, and material culture (and combinations of those areas) for academic positions as well as for nonacademic employment. The Service offers an online Portal where registered candidates can see new listings one business day or less after institutions submit them and a monthly digest of all advertisements posted during the previous 30 days. It also sets aside meeting space for and schedules interviews between candidates and hiring institutions at the SCS’s annual meeting each January. The SCS’s Committee on Placement monitors activity in the Service to ensure adherence by both candidates and institutions to its Placement Guidelines and to the SCS’s Statement of Professional Ethics. The committees in the Professional Matters Division regularly review activity in the Placement Service and publish reports about that activity.
We also offer step-by-step tutorials on how to sign up for the Placement Service.
REMINDER: All positions hoping to interview at the annual meeting must provide their shortlists to the Placement Service by December 1st in order to receive priority consideration for candidate and room scheduling.
