Call for new Associate Editors
- Published on 20 March 2023
The Board of Directors of Astronomy & Astrophysics invites applications for three positions of Associate Editors. The positions to fill are in the following broad research areas:
- Theoretical astrophysics
- Extragalactic astrophysics
- Stellar populations
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. Some familiarity with additional fields of astrophysics will be considered a plus for all three positions. The theoretician, ideally, will be familiar with a broad span of theoretical astrophysics. Candidates from underrepresented groups and geographical areas are particularly encouraged to apply.
Candidates should be prepared to commit the time needed to handle the peer review of about hundred and fifty 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 their motivations 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 from their home institute should also be discussed in the application.
Applications should be e-mailed as a single PDF file to the Vice-Chairperson of the Board of Directors, Vassilis Charmandaris and to the Executive Committee member Birgitta Nordström, who will send back an acknowledgment of receipt. Interviews for shortlisted candidates are expected to be held in person on the 29 & 30th of May 2023 and we encourage the applicants to reserve their availability for those dates.
Member of the Executive Committee of the Board
Pr. Birgitta Nordström,
Applications received by April 30, 2023 will receive full consideration.
