GLO001DU Requisition #
Cell Press is seeking a full-time Scientific Editor to work on Cell Systems and provide expertise more broadly across its life science journals.  Cell Systems is a monthly, hybrid open-access journal. It publishes exceptional work that uses math, engineering, physics, statistics, or computer science to interrogate salient biological problems.  You will be an integral member of the Cell Systems Editorial Team and also work intimately and dynamically with other journal teams.

Compelling applicants will bring curiosity, generosity, and incisive thinking to their work. They will be comfortable thinking independently about difficult scientific problems and adept at communicating complicated ideas with precision, nuance, and clarity. Most importantly, they will care deeply about science and have strong convictions about how to serve the scientific community well.

This is a full-time, in-house editorial position, based in one of three locations: Cambridge, MA (USA), London, or Amsterdam.  We will consider applications on a rolling basis until Nov. 15, 2019.  To apply, please include your CV or resume and a cover letter describing why you are interested in this role.  Applications will be held in the strictest of confidence.


Key responsibilities will include:
Assessing submitted research papers, overseeing the peer review process, working collaboratively with researchers and editors, recruiting superb research papers, and representing Cell Systems at scientific meetings and visits to research institutions.


Qualifications include:
A PhD in quantitative biology, systems biology, bioengineering, biophysics, bioinformatics, or a related discipline is required.  Post-doctoral experience is an advantage but not required.

Previous editorial experience is desirable, but not required. Applicants with a professional background, such as running a research group or working in industry, are also encouraged to apply.


The working environment:
Cell Press has a stimulating, collaborative culture that prizes excellence and facilitates daily contact with thought-provoking scientists in all disciplines around the world.  The position comes with an attractive salary and benefits package.
