    The Southeast’s hottest publishing house needs a research specialist for its unique series of memorabilia-filled books illustrating the long histories of the best collegiate football and basketball programs across the country. The successful candidate will have to:

    • Travel about 10 days per month to major universities to conduct archival research for old photographs and memorabilia, scan collectibles, and supervise freelance sports and studio photographers;
    • Adhere to photo-acquisition budgets and broker rights/fee agreements;
    • Develop and maintain relationships with university archivists, sports information departments, museum curators and private collectors of collegiate sports memorabilia;
    • Have professional editing/writing experience in Associated Press style;
    • Write photo and art captions;
    • Work with the art director to oversee the creativity of our in-house book designers;
    • Be able to juggle several book projects at the same time, and meet deadlines.

    To view our sports books, go to www.collegevaultbooks.com.

    Sorry, but recent college graduates need not apply. No phone calls please. Atlanta-area candidates preferred. Our office is located off I-85 on Clairmont Road inside I-285 in Northeast Atlanta.

    To apply, e-mail us by <a href="mailto:dennis.schmidt@whitmanbooks.com">clicking here</a>. PM me for additional info.
