ASA Guidelines for Job Postings

While ASA encourages the sharing of job opportunities, we would like you to be aware of current policy regarding job listings:

  • Section listservs may include job announcements if they choose to do so, but only if the positions have been posted in the online ASA Job Bank. This is to ensure that all ASA members are given equal opportunity to review and apply for available positions that are known to the ASA, and to keep Section Listserv postings from negatively affecting the financial viability of the online Job Bank which all ASA members support with their dues.
  • Exceptions may be made occasionally for available positions that do not specifically require a PhD (or other degree) in sociology or closely related discipline or that would not otherwise be expected to be advertised in the ASA Job Bank.
  • Section listserv managers are responsible for implementing this policy. It is recommended that they require persons submitting job announcements for the listserv to provide the ASA Job Bank IDs (easily available at http://asa.enoah.com/Job-Bank-Information or by emailing jobbank@asanet.org) or a specific reason why the particular announcement is an exception.

Note that all employers posting a position in the ASA Job Bank are given the opportunity to request information on that position be submitted to up to two section listservs.
