The Board of Trustees of the Vergilian Society is seeking applicants for the position of editor for its journal Vergilius. Vergilius publishes annually peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of Vergil, along with the renowned annual Vergil Bibliography. Vergilius has a wide readership and good circulation.

The Editor’s term is three years, renewable once, beginning in January 2019. The Editor of Vergilius is also a member ex officio of the Executive Committee of the Vergilian Society, typically attending two meetings per year, one, usually via Skype, in the fall and one at the SCS meetings the following January. She or he shall be responsible for all activities connected with the publication of the journal, excluding payment of publication and mailing costs, and shall submit an annual report to the Board of Trustees and to the General Membership. The Editor of Vergilius recommends to the Executive Committee Associate Editors, if any, and appointees to the Editorial Board. The Editor of Vergilius may receive an honorarium, subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees.
Process: Applications for the position of Editor of Vergilius will be evaluated by the Nominating Committee, who will then make a recommendation to the general membership; the general membership will consider the nominating committee’s recommendation on the fall ballot.
