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.

We are particularly interested to hear from applicants who have expertise in public health, the development of prognostics and diagnostics or are familiar with AI based approaches applicable to clinical practice.
The ideal candidate would have familiarity with one or more clinical fields, including metabolic disease, neuroscience and cancer. You should have a deep understanding of your subject and scientific interests beyond this and an inquiring scientific mind.
The successful candidates will report to a Team Manager in the life science division.
This demanding and intellectually stimulating role is located in either our Berlin, London, New York or Shanghai office. The position is offered on a full-time, permanent basis and its starting date is envisaged within the next few months.
For Berlin candidates, we offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes:
Terms for Berlin
Working Hours: Full-time (37 hours/week)
Company: Springer Nature AG & Co. KGaA
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!
