Job Title: Associate or Senior Editor, Nature Cancer
Location: New York, London, Berlin or Shanghai
Nature Cancer, a new journal that will launch in 2020, will welcome the spectrum of cancer research, from preclinical to clinical work. From new insights into cancer biology, to new approaches for the development and delivery of treatment, and new ways of understanding the global societal impact of cancer, Nature Cancer will provide the field with the best cancer-related research and a unique forum for news and commentary.
To help realize this vision, we are now recruiting Associate or Senior Editors for the journal. This is an exciting opportunity to join the team that will help shape and launch a new journal that will cover all aspects of cancer research. Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant discipline and preferably postdoctoral experience, with a strong track record in cancer-relevant research.
The successful applicant will work closely with the Chief Editor and the Nature Cancer team on all aspects of the editorial process, including manuscript selection, commissioning and editing of Reviews and News & Views, and writing for the journal. Working within a dynamic editorial and publishing environment that also includes Nature, Nature Cell Biology, Nature Genetics and Nature Medicine, this demanding and stimulating role calls for a keen interest in the practice and communication of science. The successful candidate will be dynamic and outgoing, and have excellent interpersonal skills. Broad scientific knowledge and training, excellent literary skills and the ability to absorb new areas of research are prerequisites. A key aspect of the job is liaising with the scientific community through laboratory visits and international conferences - willingness to travel is essential.
The positions will be based in one of our international offices: New York, London, Berlin or Shanghai. Please state your preferred location in your application.
To apply, please send:
- A CV and cover letter explaining your interest in the post and indicating salary expectations.
