ARDC is Hiring an Administrative Coordinator

Update, May 13, 2021 – as of today, we have received over 200 applications for this position. Please know that I will be reviewing all applications that have come in! However, unless we are not able to select a candidate from this pool, we will not be reviewing applications that come in May 14 and after.

It’s clear from some of the applications that this posting has been cross-listed on a number of job sites; I have reached out to those I’ve been able to identify to ask if they could suspend the post. In case we are not able to reach all of them, I feel it important that this message be made public so I’m posting it here.

To those who have applied, thank you for your patience!
