(Senior) Editor BMC Infectious Diseases
Location: London, Berlin, New York, Shanghai
Closing Date: 6th October 2020
Are you a PhD-qualified candidate with a genomics background looking for your first editorial position? The BMC Series is looking for an in-house Editor for BMC Infectious Diseases.
The BMC Series is a collection of community-focused, open access journals that cover all areas of science and medicine. The ethos of these journals is that editorial decisions are not based on the perceived impact or interest level of papers, but on rigorous science.
Communication is a key part of this role, as you will need to build excellent and productive relationships with the external academic editors. You will also work closely with internal teams responsible for editorial support, marketing, data sharing, PR etc. You will also need to take a proactive approach to organizing your work, and through monitoring the content and performance of your journal, you will identify and implement changes to maximise both.
At BioMed Central we value and celebrate the diversity of our people. We recognise 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:
Terms for Berlin
Working Hours: Full-time (37 hours/week)
Company: Springer Nature AG & Co. KGaA
To apply, please submit a CV and a cover letter outlining your key ambitions in the role, including your salary expectations and notice period.
We are looking forward to your online application! Your contact is Annabelle Sabo.
