Job Title: Associate or Senior Editor (clinical microbiology and infectious diseases) Nature Communications

Locations: London, New York, Pune – Hybrid working model. 

Closing date: 24th April. Candidates will be considered as they apply.

 

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 an editor who has a critical eye, a deep understanding of their subject and interests beyond, and who can think on their feet.

 

About the role

Do you love science but feel that a career at the bench isn’t enough to sate your desire to learn more about the natural world? Do you enjoy reading papers outside your chosen area of research? If the answer is ‘yes’ to any or all of these questions, you could be the person we’re looking for to join the editorial team of Nature Communications.

The successful candidate will report to the Chief Editor for microbiology and infectious diseases in the health and clinical science division. This demanding and intellectually stimulating role is located in one of our offices in London, New York, or Pune. All applicants must be able to demonstrate the right to live and work in the respective country to be considered for the position. The position is offered on a full-time, permanent basis and its starting date is envisaged as soon as possible within the next few months.

 

Role Responsibilities:

  • 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. Commission and edit Reviews, and write Editorials

 

Experience, Skills & Qualifications:

  • A PhD (or equivalent) in a field related to clinical microbiology, infectious diseases, epidemiology of infectious diseases, or public health. Significant research experience is preferred but not essential. A thorough understanding of recent trends and developments in the field 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. 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. Editorial experience is not required, although applicants with significant editorial experience are encouraged to apply and will potentially be considered for Senior Editor positions.

 

To apply: Applicants should include a CV, a covering letter explaining their interest in the post and their preferred office of employment, and a separate concise (300-400 words) discussion of a recent scientific development that they found particularly exciting (stating why).
