Assistant Editor, Physical Review Letters
Physical Review Letters seeks an Assistant Editor
The editors of Physical Review Letters seek a dynamic and personable colleague for the position of Assistant Editor at the editorial offices in Ridge, New York, on Long Island near Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University. The primary responsibility is to decide, aided by anonymous peer review, which papers merit publication according to the journal's criteria. The Assistant Editor is expected to take independent actions on submitted manuscripts and also to help with the overall mission of the journals.
The qualified applicant will have a PhD in Physics or a closely related field and postdoctoral research experience and be familiar with the research publication process. We have a preference for someone with experience in photonics or other optical properties of condensed matter systems. An excellent command of written and spoken English is essential. We will train the new editor to develop needed editorial skills. We would also welcome an interest in contributing to ongoing efforts by the APS journals to reach out to nonspecialist and general readers. 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 Society and its journals, see www.aps.org.
