Editor of APA Monographs

The American Philological Association seeks to appoint an Editor for Monographs for a term of four years, to begin with the January 2011 meetings in San Antonio. The prospective Editor, who serves as a volunteer, should be a member in good standing of the Association, with a record of scholarly accomplishment and with some editorial experience.

The incoming editor will also work with the Editor for Textbooks, the Web Editor, the Editor of TAPA, and the Vice President for Publications to improve distribution and publicity for APA publications. Candidates should submit, and nominees will be invited to submit, a current c.v. and a statement outlining the strengths and goals that the applicant would bring to the position. Applications and nominations may be submitted to the Vice President at Consideration of candidates will begin on or after July 31, 2010 (note extended deadline).
