The Board of Directors of Astronomy & Astrophysics invites applications for two positions of Associate Editors that will become vacant on January 1, 2015. The positions to fill are in the following broad research areas:

  • Stellar astrophysics

  • High energy astrophysics

The new Associate Editors are expected to have a broad and recognized expertise in their domain of specialization, as witnessed by a strong record of influential published research. For the stellar astrophysics position, preference will be given to candidates who are comfortable with theory. For both positions, some familiarity with additional fields of astrophysics will be considered a plus.

Candidates should be prepared to commit the time needed to handle the peer review of about two hundred papers per year. Limited support for office equipment, as well as an annual indemnity, are provided for this position. The initial term of appointment is four years.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a concise letter that summarizes the candidate’s qualifications and the reasons for seeking an Associate Editor position. They should in particular describe their experience as a referee and/or journal editor. Possible support for the task (in terms of equipment, office space or personnel) from the home institute should also be discussed in the application.

Applications should be e-mailed in PDF format to the Chairperson and the Vice-Chairperson of the Board of Directors, who will send back an acknowledgment of receipt.

Chairperson of the Board
Dr. Birgitta Nordström

Vice-Chairperson of the Board
Dr. Jan Lub

Applications received by June 10, 2014 will receive full consideration.

Informal inquiries about the positions may be directed by e-mail to Birgitta Nordström or Jan Lub, as well as to the Editor in Chief ( or any of the other current editors.
