The American Philosophical Association  and the PhilPapers  Foundation are pleased to announce New Appointments in Philosophy , a new service through PhilJobs: Jobs for Philosophers . This database of new appointments in philosophy departments worldwide will allow standardized collection of demographic and other data about appointments in philosophy. It will also provide a way to systematically disseminate news of recent appointments.
The service is now available at the following URL: http://philjobs.org/appointments/ 
The website provides users with a list of new appointments, in reverse chronological order by submission. Users can also display appointments in various categories: senior/tenured, junior/untenured, fellowships, and others. The site also provides RSS feeds for each of these categories and a search engine.
Those involved with the appointments process are encouraged to submit information about new appointments as soon as they are finalized. Information can be submitted by the appointee, the appointee’s placement director, or by relevant members of the hiring department (e.g. chair, chair of search committee, administrator). In all cases the appointee and the hiring department will be asked to confirm the information and to provide demographic data. Submissions of appointments at any level are welcomed: senior, junior, post-docs and other fellowships, visiting positions, adjunct positions, and so on. (At this time the system does not, however, accept graduate student appointments, such as teaching assistantships.)
