Assistant Editor, Physical Review B
The editors of Physical Review B seek a dynamic and personable colleague to join our group at the editorial offices in Ridge, New York, on Long Island near Brookhaven Lab and Stony Brook University. Our core responsibility is selection of manuscripts for publication, in the context of the peer review process.
For this purpose, we aim to hire an Assistant Editor who has a Ph.D. and postdoctoral experience in an area relevant to the journal (condensed matter or materials physics), and is familiar with the research publication process. We have a preference for an experimentalist.
An excellent command of written and spoken English is essential. No prior editorial experience is needed — we train all new editors to develop the necessary skills. An Assistant Editor is expected to take independent actions on submitted manuscripts and also to help with the overall mission of the journals. We offer career stability, a competitive salary, and an outstanding benefits package to a qualified individual ready to start a nontraditional career in physics. For general information about the American Physical Society and its journals, see www.aps.org.
To apply, please send your resume plus cover letter containing salary requirements and timetable of availability to:
