Social Science Editor for Nature Sustainability Journal
Posted: 11/14/2016 (Employment)
Nature Sustainability, a new multidisciplinary journal from Nature Research, will publish the most significant research across a wide spectrum of natural, social and engineering science: research into how we organize our lives in a finite world, into the multiple impacts our actions have, and into the solutions that will ensure well-being now and in the future.
They wish to recruit an editor for the journal to cover the socioeconomic and international development dimensions of sustainability research — they are looking for research expertise in international development, or international relations, or sociology, or human geography, or related disciplines, preferably with training in quantitative methods.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the team that will help shape and launch a new academic journal, to present a fully cross-disciplinary picture of sustainability research. Applicants should have a PhD in the relevant discipline, and preferably postdoctoral experience, with a strong research record.
The successful candidate will work closely with the Chief Editor, and with three editors from the natural and engineering sciences. Together, the Nature Sustainability team will work on all aspects of the editorial process, including manuscript selection and peer review, the commissioning and editing of Reviews and News & Views articles, and also writing for the journal.
