Job Title: Associate or Senior Editor, Nature Ecology & Evolution

Location: London, Berlin, Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing, Tokyo, Pune New Delhi or New York 

Full Time, Permanent, hybrid role

Closing date: December 12th 2022


Do you have a background in ecology or evolution research, but are looking for involvement in a broader range of topics than your own specific research area? We are looking for an Associate or Senior Editor to join the team of Nature Ecology & Evolution, and help shape the journal’s mission to publish original research and commentary in all areas related to ecology and evolution, and develop the highest standards in editorial practice.

 

 The successful candidate will handle manuscripts across the journal's scope, developing a special focus relevant to their own area of expertise. The role involves the editorial assessment of manuscripts for publication, management of peer review, commissioning and writing of content and acting as Nature Ecology & Evolution's interface with the global research and policy community.

 

This is a demanding and intellectually stimulating position, and calls for a keen interest in the practice and communication of science. A key aspect of the job is interaction with the scientific community, including attending international conferences. The successful candidate must, therefore, be a great communicator, have excellent interpersonal skills and be prepared to travel as may be required.

Applicants should hold a PhD or equivalent degree, with postdoctoral experience preferable.

 

Previous editorial experience is beneficial but not essential.

The position will be based in the offices of Springer Nature, and the terms and conditions are competitive, reflecting the importance and responsibilities of the role.


Applications should include all of the following:

1. A cover letter explaining your interest in the position, and indicating salary expectations.

2. A CV / resume detailing your education, relevant employment history, list of published scientific papers, and any other achievements that demonstrate your suitability for the position.
3. A concise discussion (no more than 800 words) of recent scientific developments that you have found particularly exciting (stating why).
