Nature Methods seeks two Associate or Senior Editors to join the editorial team. Candidates with an expertise in genetics, genomics, protein biochemistry and biophysics (especially in structural biology and/or proteomics), and/or computational methods are particularly encouraged to apply but we will also consider excellent candidates with other backgrounds.
This is a unique opportunity to participate in the exciting and influential role of an editor in a high-profile journal. Nature Methods is a leading journal worldwide in publishing methods for biological research.
In this role, the successful applicant will evaluate manuscripts, oversee the peer review process, write short pieces for the journal, and potentially commission and edit secondary materials such as News and Views.
The ideal candidate will have experience using a range of biological laboratory techniques and ideally demonstrate an interest in methodology development. A broader interest in and understanding of biology is also important. Excellent communication skills and a willingness and ability to learn new fields are a must. Applicants should have completed a PhD in the biological sciences or in a closely related area. Post-doctoral experience in biology is desirable. Editorial experience is beneficial but not required.
This position is available in all of Nature’s main offices, including New York, London, Berlin and Shanghai.
To apply, an interested candidate should complete the online application and submit, as a single file, a curriculum vitae and a cover letter explaining your interest in the position.
All applicants will be reviewed upon receipt with a close date of December 19, 2018.
