Senior Editor, The Lancet Regional Health - Europe
hace 4 días

Do you enjoy using science to drive change in the world?

Are you passionate about improving health outcomes in Europe?

The Lancet Regional Health Europe is a new OA journal, part of the Lancet 's global initiative to advocate for health-care quality and access in all regions of the world.

We are a small and friendly team handling a high volume of submissions while priding ourselves on offering a personalised service to the researchers who publish with us.

The Senior Editor will work with a fellow Senior Editor and the Editor-in-Chief in all aspects of the organisation and preparation of the journal.

You will encounter some of the best research in Europe, collaborate with a regional and global authorship base, and get to work closely with other journal editors as well as our production, marketing, communications, and administration.

As Senior Editor you will :

  • Contribute critically to the selection of the journal content
  • Identify experts to act as peer reviewers on selected submissions
  • Write editorials
  • Commission content to build our journal’s profile among the communities we serve and handle special project content as necessary
  • Develop and maintain links with the regional health community to solicit high-quality research and thought leadership for the journal
  • Attend conferences and other events, to represent the journal, to identify suitable topics and authors, and to keep up-to-date with current developments in regional health
  • Suggesting and helping to develop new initiatives for future development and enhancement of the journal
  • Requirements

  • Higher degree in a relevant discipline (eg, public health, biomedical science)
  • Research experience in a relevant field or experience in the wider development community
  • Editorial experience, with a good understanding of all aspects of the journal publishing process would be an added advantage but not an absolute requirement.
  • First-class critical analysis skills
  • A genuine commitment to equity in health and health care
  • An unfailingly can-do attitude
  • Enjoy collaborating with teams to deliver successful projects and initiatives on time
  • Have a natural ability to engage, influence and build relationships with stakeholders, teams and our community
  • Work life

    For this particular role, we do not expect daily attendance in the office but believe that regular in-person team meetings can be beneficial for us all.

    You will have a clearly defined schedule of work, and the way you use your weekly hours to complete it will be up to you.
