Associate or Senior Editor (Energy Materials)

Organisation: Nature Communications

Location: Beijing, Jersey City, Nanjing, New York, Philadelphia, Shanghai, Washington DC (hybrid working)

Permanent - Full-time
Closing date: 18th April 2024 (candidates will be considered as they apply)

Nature Portfolio is the world’s leader in publishing high-quality research from across the natural sciences. Its journals include Nature, the Nature Research journals, the Nature Reviews journals and Nature Communications.

Nature Communications is the leading multidisciplinary Open Access journal, publishing high-quality scientific research. To help us to build on the success of this journal, we’re seeking a scientist with a strong background in electrochemistry including batteries and catalysis. The ideal candidate would be a critical thinker with a deep understanding of their subject and interests beyond, and who can think on their feet.

The Associate/Senior Editor role at Nature Communications is ideal for researchers who love science but feel that a career at the bench isn’t enough to sate your desire to learn more about the natural world and for those who enjoy reading papers outside their chosen area of research.

The responsibilities include: 

  • Handling original research papers, and working closely with other editors on all aspects of the editorial process, including manuscript selection and overseeing peer review.
  • Making well-reasoned editorial decisions on submitted manuscripts in the light of expert advice.
  • Determining the representation of their subject in the journal.
  • Liaising extensively with editors at other journals in the Nature family and with experts in the international scientific community.
  • Attending conferences and visiting research institutions.

To be considered for the position, you will have: 

  • A PhD (or equivalent) in electrochemistry or related areas including, but not limited to the design and characterization of energy materials including batteries or electrocatalysts.
  • Some postdoctoral research experience is preferred but not essential. A thorough understanding of the fundamentals of the subject is essential.
  • A passion for science and a thirst to learn more. You must be able to demonstrate the breadth of your interest in scientific research, both within and beyond your speciality and across the wider field of inorganic materials chemistry.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be fluent in English (written and spoken).
  • The ability to read and assess the novelty, context and implications of research submitted to the journal from different areas of this discipline.
  • Be eager to travel and meet scientists worldwide, learn more about them and their research, and help them learn more about us and what we are looking for in the papers we seek to publish.

This role can be in our Beijing, Jersey City, Nanjing, New York, Philadelphia, Shanghai or Washington DC offices (hybrid working available). The position is offered on a full-time, permanent basis. Editorial experience is not required, although applicants with significant editorial experience are encouraged to apply and will potentially be considered for Senior Editor positions.

Applicants should include a CV, a cover letter explaining their interest in the post and their preferred office of employment.

Closing date: 18th April 2024

Candidates will be considered as they apply.
