Is there a faculty opening in your department that a folklorist might be able to fill?

Are there any open positions at your public folklore organization or state arts agency?

Do you know of any postdoctoral fellowships or paid internships that a budding folklorist could occupy?


If so, please consider submitting those open positions to be posted on the AFS website! 

Submitting job openings to the AFS Career Center serves not only those looking for jobs and those looking to hire, but also helps us track professional prospects. If you know of a folklore job, fellowship, or internship that you'd like to see posted, please either submit it directly here or send it to Please allow 2–3 business days for your submission to appear on the AFS website.

All AFS Career Center posts and all fellowship and internship opportunities are compiled in “Professional Opportunities” in the AFS Review.

AFS has just published a Report on Recent Job Prospects for Folklorists in the AFS Review, compiling data from job postings on our website from between May 2017–May 2018. We are satisfied that this report reveals certain trends in the folklore job market, but we also acknowledge that the results are necessarily limited by our data set. It is the policy of AFS staff to post all folklore jobs that enter our awareness to the AFS website, but of course there are gaps in our awareness. AFS will survey job openings again in the future, and you can help us improve the accuracy of our results by letting us know about job opportunities for folklorists that cross your desk. Thank you for your help!
