Reviews Editor Vacancy (from 2018)

The Royal Archaeological Institute is seeking a new Reviews Editor for the Archaeological Journal to take over from Dr Kate Waddington in 2018.

The Reviews Editor is primarily responsible for seeing book reviews and review articles through to publication. We aim to review 40–50 books for each volume of the Archaeological Journal, covering, primarily, titles concerned with the British Isles and northern Europe. One review article is also published each year. The post therefore provides an excellent opportunity to become familiar with a wide range of new titles. Although essentially voluntary, there is also a small honorarium subject to agreement with the RAI.

It is expected that the Reviews Editor will be willing to make a minimum three-year commitment with the possibility of renewal or extension for a further period. Candidates should be familiar with a broad spectrum of British archaeology and have experience of academic publication and some experience of editing. Attendance at the RAI Editorial Committee Meetings in London (maximum of 2 Wednesdays a year) is expected (expenses will be met). The successful candidate will be required to become a full member of the Royal Archaeological Institute, if they are not already (membership details on

Interested parties wishing to discuss the post should contact Dr Kate Waddington via email: k.waddington [at] . The deadline for applications in the form of a covering letter and supporting CV is 31st July 2017. Please email to admin [at] Interviews will take place in early Autumn – date and location to be confirmed.
