Blog Editor – Journal of Animal Ecology
Journal of Animal Ecology was established by the British Ecological Society in 1932 and has subsequently become the leading journal for original research in animal ecology. We publish articles detailing novel and important work, on topics ranging from the molecular to the ecosystem level, which will hopefully challenge the way animal ecologists think.
We are looking for an Associate Editor for our Animal Ecology In Focus blog. The aim of this blog is to provide the latest journal updates and, in particular, to serve as a forum for informative and stimulating discussion of topics in the field of animal ecology. Posts are variously contributed by the Senior Editors, the Assistant Editor and other members of the Editorial board.
The Blog Editor will be responsible for commissioning content for the blog and will work closely with the rest of the Journal’s editorial board and editorial office to determine regular content. We aim to publish 3–4 posts per month. In the rare cases where there is disagreement regarding content, all final Editorial decisions will rest with the Editorial Office.
The role is for an initial term of 1 year and unpaid, although benefits for the Journal’s Associate Editors will also be extended to the blog editor.
We are looking for a researcher passionate about communicating all aspects of animal ecology. We welcome applicants from any career stage.
For more information please contact the Assistant Editor for Journal of Animal Ecology, Simon Hoggart (email@example.com). To apply please send a CV and a covering letter briefly detailing why you are interested, relevant experience you may have and your ideas for developing the blog by 1 March 2017. Interviews will be held via phone or Skype during the week of the 20th March.
Journal of Animal Ecology is a journal of the British Ecological Society. The BES values the benefits that diversity brings. We seek to create an inclusive culture and welcome applications from all sectors of society.
