Vacancy Title Associate Editors
Country of employment United kingdom
Job description Nature Publishing Group, the publisher of Nature, is pleased to announce the launch of Nature Climate Change. This international monthly journal, launching in April 2011, will provide in-depth analysis and opinion on the impacts and wider implications of the Earthís changing climate.

Nature Climate Change will publish original research across the natural and social sciences and will strive to forge and synthesize interdisciplinary research. The journalís mission will be to unify the body of research on the understanding, and impacts, of climate change as well as to place it in a wider social and political context.

We require two Associate Editors, based in our London offices, who will work to develop, launch and establish Nature Climate Change as the essential publication covering research on the Earthís changing climate. The ideal candidates will play a leading role in ensuring the accessibility of research published in the journal, and in raising its visibility in related research communities as well as with the mainstream media and public.

The ideal candidates will have a Ph.D. in a related discipline with demonstrable research achievements. Though postdoctoral experience is preferred (not required) emphasis will be place on broadly trained applicants with knowledge of the wider research community. Key elements of the position include the selection of manuscripts for publication, and the commissioning, editing and writing of other content for the journal. We are ideally looking to recruit one Associate Editor with a background in physical climate science and/or climate impacts research, and one Associate Editor with a background in social sciences and climate research. These are demanding and extremely stimulating roles, which call for a keen interest in the practice and communication of science. The successful candidates will therefore be dynamic, motivated and outgoing, and must possess excellent managerial, presentation and interpersonal skills.

To apply, please send a CV (including your class of degree and a brief account of your research and other relevant experience), a News & [View] style piece (500 words or less) on a recent paper from the relevant literature, and a brief cover letter detailing your salary expectations as well as explaining your interest in the post to the email address below. Please quote reference number NPG 034/10 in the subject header.
