 American Astronomical Societ Job Register - The Key To Astronomy EmploymentySearch Directory andS eJoabr cRhegSisEtAerR CseHparately.  AAS Home Journals Home Membership Directory Member Pages Job Register   AAS Job Register Editorial Job Register Fee Change The AAS Job Register has always had a 250 word limit per job announcement. This limit encourages the brief and informative description of jobs and greatly aids job seekers by limiting announcements to a reasonable length. In the past, we worked with institutions to edit their announcements to meet this limit, but this was always an inconvenience for both the AAS and the publishing institution. Announcements beyond the 250 word limit can now appear, but will incur a $0.25 per word surcharge. It is understood that some announcements must be longer than 250 words and this fee was set low so as not to incur an undue financial penalty on these lengthy announcements. The Job Register announcement base rate remains at a very low rate compared to comparable services provided by other professional societies. The AAS will continue to strive to maintain a low rate for the announcement of employment opportunities, which we feel is of significant benefit to the astronomical community and continues to secure the AAS Job Register's position as the number one source for astronomical employment opportunities. Kevin B. Marvel Executive Officer Publication Policy for the AAS Job Register Deadlines for submission Job announcements may be submitted at any time and should be submitted well before the deadline so that any errors or difficulties can be resolved efficiently. Job announcements must be received by the 15th and paid for by the 25th of each month for publication in the subsequent issue of theJob Register. If payment is not received, then the announcement will not run in the next month's issue, but in the subsequent month's issue.We recommend that submission and payment be made well in advance of the monthly deadline. Examples Submit and pay by 15 October - Announcement will appear in the NovemberJob Register Submit and pay by 19 October - Announcement will appear in the DecemberJob Register Submit by 15 October, but pay after that date but before December 1 - Announcement will appear in the DecemberJob Register. Rate Sheet For rate information please see thejob register submission form. Employers must indicate how they will pay for their announcement at the time of submission. We accept payment by: Check, in US currency drawn on a US bank. VISA and MasterCard be sure to include expiration date.

AAS Postdoctoral Position Policy The AAS Council has passed (1988) and reaffirmed (2003) a resolution stating that no postdoctoral position should require a candidate response prior to February 15 of each year. This policy applies to postdoctoral positions whose recruitment cycles follow the normal academic search timeline (offers in early spring to begin summer or fall of the same year).
