Core team vacancies

The following vacancies are open to all anthropology students at Utrecht University and University College Utrecht. No previous (editorial) experience is required for any of these positions.

Deadline: Monday 19 December 2022

Please note that all positions at SCAJ are on a volunteer-basis.

External affairs

As a member of the external affairs team, you represent SCAJ to external parties. Most notably, you reach out to the department’s anthropology professors to arrange short promotional talks during a lecture. Here, you will tell students about our upcoming deadlines and let them know where they can find us. In addition, we are currently working on reaching out to funds and foundations to secure financial support, which is what the external affairs duo will be working on as well.

Tasks include:

  • Reaching out to professors to schedule promotional talks;

  • Giving short promotional talks during anthropology lectures at UU and/or UCU;

  • Sustaining or establishing contact with external parties;

  • Attending core team meetings (once every three to four weeks).

Social media team

Our social media team consists preferably of two members. Together, they keep tabs on the promotion on social media of reviewer and submission deadlines, SCAJ events, Fieldnotes, vacancies, and more. Since this is a relatively busy task with a central position within the team, we recommend applying for this position solely or in addition to a minor task within SCAJ. 

Tasks include: 

  • Reaching out to fellow team members for information around promotional material. 

  • Designing and posting material on different social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn). 

  • Planning the social media agenda with your fellow team member at the beginning of every publication process. 

  • Attending core team meetings (once every three to four weeks).  

You will always have the opportunity to pitch new ideas and work on small projects besides the tasks assigned to your position. 

Intrigued? Apply for a position now! Fill in the form and include a short statement of motivation (max. 300 words). The application deadline is on December 19, 2022
