We now have an opening to join our team as an Associate or Senior Editor. This is a rare and exciting opportunity to help shape the social science content of the journal.
Our professional editors make the final decision on what we publish. You will play an important role in determining the representation of policy and socio-economic dimensions of climate change, and more broadly the social sciences and humanities, in the journal.

Nature Climate Change is part of a dynamic editorial and publishing environment that also includes Nature, Nature Energy, Nature Sustainability and Nature Human Behaviour.
