      Director of Publications


      The primary responsibilities of the Director of Publications
      include the overall direction and management of the
      Publications Office; overseeing the assignments of the
      editorial staff and freelance editors and designers; working
      with excavation directors and authors to develop and produce
      assigned monographs; collaborating with the Editor of
      Hesperia; overseeing marketing and distribution; negotiating
      financial arrangements with printers and fulfillment agencies;
      investigating alternative sources of funding for publications;
      and exploring and developing new avenues--digital or
      other--for American School publications.

      The Director is also expected to oversee staff in the
      Publications Office; write regularly scheduled performance
      reviews; create and administer an annual departmental budget;
      prepare regular reports for the American School Managing
      Committee, Board of Trustees, and Committee on Publications;
      and maintain and expand the American School Publications web
      page. The Director works closely with the chair of the
      Committee on Publications and reports to the chair of the
      Managing Committee.

      Requirements: BA degree, with an advanced degree preferred;
      at least five years managerial experience in a publishing
      environment; background in classical archaeology, Classics,
      ancient art, or a related field preferred; and demonstrated
      knowledge of digital publishing and current trends in
      scholarly communication.

      Alongside archaeological exploration, teaching, and research,
      publication is one of the core missions of the American School
      of Classical Studies at Athens. Since its founding in 1881,
      the American School has published almost 250 books. These
      include major reports and studies on material culture
      recovered during excavations at the Athenian Agora, Ancient
      Corinth, and other sites that are essential reference works
      for all scholars of the ancient world. Since 1932, the
      American School has also published the award-winning quarterly
      journal Hesperia, one of the leading periodicals in the field.
      The increasingly digital nature of scholarship is transforming
      the nature of publication in this field, and the Director of
      Publications contributes to institution-wide initiatives to
      support new modes of scholarly communication.

      The position is full-time, beginning as soon as is mutually
      convenient. Excellent benefits, pleasant working conditions in
      the Princeton, New Jersey Publications Office, occasional
      travel to Greece, and salary commensurate with experience.
      Application review will begin as of April 14, 2010 and
      continue until the position is filled. Interested applicants
      should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and at least two
      letters of recommendation to:

      Professor Jane Carter
      Committee on Publications
      American School of Classical Studies at Athens
