Assistant Editor, Physical Review B
The editors of Physical Review B seek a dynamic and personable colleague for the position of Assistant Editor based at the American Physical Society Editorial Office in Ridge, New York, on Long Island near Brookhaven National Laboratory and Stony Brook University. The primary responsibility is to decide, aided by anonymous peer review, which papers merit publication according to the journal's criteria. The Assistant Editor is expected to take independent actions on submitted manuscripts and also to help with the overall mission of the journals.
The qualified applicant will have a PhD in Physics or a closely related field and postdoctoral experience in an area relevant to the journal (condensed matter or materials physics) and be familiar with the research publication process. We have a preference for an experimentalist. An excellent command of written and spoken English is essential. No prior editorial experience is required -- we train all new editors to develop the necessary skills. We offer career stability, a competitive salary, and an outstanding benefits package to a qualified individual ready to start a nontraditional career in physics.
