Associate or Senior Editor, Nature Communications (Climate Science)

Closing date: 9th September, 2016

Location: London, New York, or Shanghai.

Do you love science but feel that a career at the bench isn’t enough to
sate your desire to learn more about the natural world? Do you enjoy
reading papers outside your chosen area of research? If the answer is
‘yes’ to any or all of these questions, you could be the person we’re
looking for to join the editorial team of /Nature Communications/ in
either our London, New York or Shanghai office.

Nature Communications is the world’s leading multidisciplinary Open
Access journal, publishing high-quality research from across the natural
sciences. To help us to build on the success of this journal, we’re
seeking a physical climate scientist who has a critical eye, a deep
understanding of their subject and interests beyond, and who can think
on their feet.

To be considered for the position, you will have:

* A PhD (or equivalent) in climate science. This could include, but is
not limited to climate system dynamics, atmospheric science, or
meteorology.
* Some postdoctoral research experience is preferred. A thorough
understanding of the fundamentals of the subject is essential.
* A passion for science and a thirst to learn more. You must be able
to demonstrate the breadth of your interest in scientific research,
both within your specialty and the wider field of Earth science.
* Excellent communication and interpersonal skills and be fluent in
English (written and spoken).
* The ability to read and assess the novelty, context and implications
of research submitted to the journal from different areas of this
discipline.
* Be eager to travel and meet scientists worldwide, learn more about
them and their research, and help them learn more about us and what
we are looking for in the papers we seek to publish.

The successful candidate will report to one our Earth science Team
Manager within the Physical Sciences, and play an important role in
determining the representation of their subject in the journal. They
will handle original research papers, and work closely with other
editors on all aspects of the editorial process, including manuscript
selection and overseeing peer review. The ability to recommend
well-reasoned editorial decisions on submitted manuscripts in the light
of expert advice is crucial. They will liaise extensively with editors
at other journals in the Nature family and with experts in the
international scientific community. Editorial experience is not
required, although applicants with significant editorial experience are
encouraged to apply and will potentially be considered for Senior Editor
positions.

This role is located in either our London, New York or Shanghai 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
separate concise 400 words discussion of recent scientific developments
that you they found particularly exciting (stating why). *Closing date:
September 9th 2016
