SETAC Publications Advisory Committee
SETAC is seeking the next editor-in-chief of its monthly electronic periodical, the SETAC Globe. This is an exceptional opportunity for an individual to actively learn about, promote, participate in and get to know the people behind the diverse activities of SETAC.
The editor-in-chief is responsible for the quality, content and style of the Globe, working within the framework of the Globe policies established by the SETAC Publications Advisory Committee (PAC), on which he or she will serve. SETAC communications, publications, information technology, scientific affairs and executive staff support the editor-in-chief with production, handling distribution of the Globe, assisting with global contacts, and providing occasional content.
SETAC is seeking an individual who is able to coordinate effectively with SETAC members worldwide to capture the research and collaboration happening across SETAC, maintain high editorial standards without compromising personal style and voice, lead an editorial and production team, and ensure that strict deadlines are consistently met. The successful candidate will be passionate and creative about effectively promoting the full spectrum of SETAC's diverse activities around the globe.
Interested candidates should submit a short statement of interest addressed to the PAC at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about the position may be directed to the current editor-in-chief at that email address, as well. The solicitation will remain open through 31 August 2014. The PAC will review submissions and select finalists in September 2014. Phone interviews with finalists will be conducted as needed in October 2014. The PAC intends to select the new Globe editor-in-chief prior to the SETAC North America 35th Annual Meeting in November 2014. The new editor-in-chief will take over in December 2014, with the current editor-in-chief staying on as the immediate past editor-in-chief for a six-month transition period.
