Position Open: Conference Manager, American Association of Teachers of Slavic and East European Languages

This is a contract position, with an annual honorarium of $12,000 (paid in quarterly installments). In terms of work schedule, the Conference Manager has numerous, regular duties from August through February associated with planning and running the conference. The workload in the other six months is minimal. The AATSEEL Conference will be alternating between an in-person event and a virtual event, so the Conference Manager will be expected to run both types of conferences. AATSEEL seeks a candidate who is outgoing, highly organized, and self-motivated, who is able to troubleshoot as complications arise in the high-stress environment of an academic conference. Knowledge of Russian, HTML, and Zoom and other online platforms is encouraged. The CM must also be prepared to work with others in the organization, most of whom are volunteers, to prepare and run the conference. Further information can be found here.

Please send letters of interest and a C.V. to Elizabeth Durst, AATSEEL Executive Director, at aatseel@usc.edu. AATSEEL will begin reviewing applications on February 1st.
