Location: London
Closing Date: 21/10/2015
Salary Range: Salary dependent on skills and experience

Nature Publishing Group
Assistant, Associate or Senior Editor (Climate science)
Nature Publishing Group (NPG) is a division of Macmillan Publishers Ltd, dedicated to serving the academic, professional scientific and medical communities.

Nature Communications is an innovative multidisciplinary scientific journal that launched in April 2010 and is now fully open access. The journal publishes high-quality research from the breadth of the natural sciences, and has already developed a strong track record in these areas.

We now have an exciting opportunity for an editor to join our team, in either London, Shanghai, or New York. The ideal candidate will have a PhD (or equivalent), and preferably postdoctoral experience, in climate science or a related area. This could include, but is not limited to, a background in climate system dynamics, oceanography, or atmospheric science. Editorial experience would be beneficial, but is not required.

Reporting to a Team Manager (Physical Sciences), the successful candidates will play an important role in determining the representation of their field in the journal, and will work closely with the other editors on all aspects of the editorial process, including manuscript selection. This role will also entail significant liaison with the scientific community, the Research Journal Chief Editors (UK and US) and the Editorial Advisory Panel.

This is a demanding and intellectually stimulating position. Broad scientific knowledge and training, excellent literary skills and a keen interest in the practice and communication of science are a prerequisite. The successful candidates must therefore have excellent communication and interpersonal skills. The salary and benefits will be competitive, reflecting the critical importance and responsibilities of this role.

This role is located in either our London, Shanghai or New York office. All applicants must be able to demonstrate the right to live and work in the respective country to be considered for the position.

Applicants should include a CV, a covering letter explaining their interest in the post and their preferred office of employment, and a concise discussion of recent scientific developments that you have found particularly exciting (stating why).

Closing date: 21st October 2015
