Phylo Jobs Announces...

In comments here, Chris Alen Sula of the Phylo Jobs project links to this announcement, which reads:

google map, social media, and new features at phylo jobs

Over the next few days, we’ll be updating you on the latest developments to our job advertisement services, including:


  • live Google map of open positions (phylo.info/jobs/map)
  • additional delivery options (RSS, text-only, mobile, Twitter, Facebook)
  • screencasts on using Phylo Jobs services
  • launch of our registered e-newspaper, Job Openings in Philosophy, to aid institutions with federal compliance
  • streamlined Jobs Wiki design for unofficial status updates (which still includes customized RSS feeds) (phylo.info/jobs/wiki)

As of October 1, 2011, we also require that each job poster certifies that his/her institution complies with American Philosophical Association’s Non-Discrimination Statement.


I cannot say enough how awesome this is. As of this writing, the Phylo Jobs site has 80 job listings, almost all of which were unsolicited by the editors. This has been really successful so far. Many thanks to Chris Alen Sula and David Morrow for putting this together. Truly wonderful.

The APA should give them an award for the awesomeness! ;-]

Oh, thank fuck for this!

You are Gods among plebs (aka the APA).

Restores one's faith in humanity, it does. The Phylo jobs listing is a massive service to the community.

Indeed, this is very cool.

Lifetime APA membership, which once seemed like it might be a good deal, financially, would've been — it's now clear — a big mistake.

Does the APA award a prize for outstanding service to the profession? I'll go to their website and see if they accept nominations online...

This is wonderful, and thank you for requiring compliance with the non-discrimination policy.

How long before an APA non-discrimination policy copyright infringement lawsuit?

Fuck the prize for outstanding service. The APA should be contracting these guys to run its website. Am I wrong in thinking the profession would be better off?

I hope Chris Alen Sula isn't thrown off when, if I ever meet him, I give him a big old unsolicited hug.
