This is a full-time permanent position, located in our Shanghai, Beijing, New York, or Philadelphia offices. 

 

Nature Cancer is the journal in the Nature Portfolio that publishes the most significant advances across the full spectrum of cancer research, spanning basic preclinical, translational and clinical work. The journal’s broad scope covers all research offering new insights into cancer biology, immunology, genetics and genomics, the development and delivery of new therapies and diagnostics, clinical oncology and new ways of understanding the global societal impact of cancer, ensuring that the work published reaches the widest possible audience.

 

To help us to build on the success of Nature Cancer we are seeking a highly motivated scientist with a strong background in translational and clinical cancer research, although strong applicants with a background in any area of cancer research and oncology and the drive to expand their expertise in the field will also be considered.

 

The successful candidate will report to the Chief Editor and will contribute to shaping the future of the journal. They will work closely with the close-knit Nature Cancer team on all aspects of the editorial process, including manuscript selection, overseeing the peer-review process, commissioning and editing Reviews, Commentary and News & Views and writing for the journal. They will liaise extensively with the scientific community through laboratory visits and international conferences, virtually or in-person.

 

To be considered for the position, you will have:

  • A PhD (or equivalent) and preferably postdoctoral experience, with a strong track record in cancer research, oncology or a related field within the scope of the journal. Editorial experience is not required, but applicants with previous editorial experience are encouraged to apply.
  • Breadth of knowledge and interest in cancer research, both within and beyond your specialty, and the ability to absorb new areas of research.
  • Excellent literary, communication and interpersonal skills and fluency in English (written and spoken).
  • The ability to assess and discuss the novelty, context and implications of research submitted to Nature Cancer and covering different areas of the journal's scope, and to recommend well-reasoned editorial decisions in light of expert advice.
  • Eagerness to represent Nature Cancer to the worldwide community of cancer researchers; to meet scientists and learn more about them and their work; and to tell them about the journal and what we are looking for in the papers we seek to publish.
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced collaborative environment – diligence, self-motivation, flexibility and team spirit are essential.

 

To apply, please send in a single document:

  • Your CV
  • A cover letter explaining your interest in the post and indicating salary expectations and preferred office location.
  • A list of 6 published articles or preprints from the last year (excluding Nature Cancer papers), which you would have selected editorially to represent the scope of Nature Cancer. For each article please provide the full reference and link together with a brief (~100 word) rationale for your choice.
