Closing date: 23rd October 2020
Nature Research 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.
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.
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 expert in agronomy or agroecology. We are particularly interested in applicants who have expertise related to crop science, soil science or microbiology, and an interest in sustainability and food security. You should have a deep understanding of your subject and scientific interests beyond this and an inquiring scientific mind.
The successful candidate will report to Rebecca Furlong, Team manager for Genetics, Ecology, Evolution, Zoology and Conservation.
This demanding and intellectually stimulating role is located in either our Berlin, London, Shanghai or New York office. The position is offered on a full-time, permanent basis and its starting date is envisaged within the next few months.
At Springer Nature we value and celebrate the diversity of our people. We recognize the many benefits of a diverse workforce and strive for an inclusive workplace that empowers all our colleagues to thrive. Our search for the best talent fully encompasses and embraces these values and principles.
For Berlin candidates, we offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes:
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).
Candidates will be considered as they apply.
Excited by the prospect of joining us? We are looking forward to your online application!
