Position Open – Editor, Yearbook of Physical Anthropology

The Executive Committee of the AAPA seeks applications for the next Editor of the Yearbook of Physical Anthropology. The Editor will serve for five years and is responsible for soliciting articles, overseeing their review and for the production of the Yearbook volume annually. The Editor is also a member of the Executive Committee of the AAPA.

Search Process and Timeline: Applications will be reviewed by the Publications Committee, which will make recommendations to the AAPA Executive Committee. The final decision will be made by the AAPA Executive Committee in late winter. The new Editor will be announced at the Business Meeting of the AAPA in New Orleans. Please see search ad for details.

Search Ad: The Yearbook of Physical Anthropology is seeking an Editor for a five year term beginning in April, 2017. Although the Yearbook is published as a supplement to the AJPA and is indexed with it, it retains its own Editorial Board and provides a venue for longer, in-depth explorations of developments in biological anthropology. While members of the Editorial Board frequently solicit articles for the Yearbook, many are submitted independently. In addition to soliciting articles, the Editor is responsible for the managing the work flow of the Yearbook’s production and participating as a member of the AAPA Executive Committee. Former experience as an editor is useful. If interested, please send a current CV and a letter of intent, which includes qualifications, experience and vision for the Yearbook to the Chair of the Search Committee, Dr. Connie Mulligan, cmulligan@ufl.edu (please send materials as a single email attachment file), by January 31, 2017.
