Are you passionate about improving health outcomes in the Americas?
The Lancet Regional Health - Americas 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 the Americas, collaborate with a regional and global authorship base, and get to work closely with other journal editors as well as our 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
- Commission 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
- Higher degree in a relevant discipline (eg, public health, biomedical science)
- Research experience in a relevant field or experience in the wider development community
- Some editorial experience, with a good understanding of all aspects of the journal publishing process
- First-class critical analysis skills
- A genuine commitment to equity in health and health-care
- An unfailingly can-do attitude
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.
