Job Register Editorial

The AAS Job Register has character "limit" per job ad. This limit encourages the brief and informative description of jobs and greatly aids job seekers by limiting announcements to a reasonable length.

Job ads beyond the 2000 character limit are allowed, but will incur an excess character surcharge. It is understood that some job ads must be longer than 2000 characters and this fee was set low so as not to incur an undue financial penalty on these lengthy ads.

The Job Register ad 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 advertisement 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.
