Job Title: Chief Editor

Organization: Nature Biotechnology

Location: New York, London or Berlin

Springer Nature, the publisher of Nature, is looking to recruit a Chief Editor for Nature Biotechnology. Launched in 1996, Nature Biotechnology is the flagship journal for journalistic and research content in biotechnology. The journal's broad scope draws from the work of scientists, bioengineers and researchers in industry and academia, publishing the most impactful research in all areas of bioengineering and biotechnology. In addition to scientifically trained editors that handle the journal's research content, the journal also employs a team of journalistic staff that publishes authoritative news and analysis covering business and scientific developments in biotechnology.

We are now looking for a visionary, dynamic Chief Editor, who will help further develop Nature Biotechnology as the leading publication in the field. The position will be based in one of our main offices in New York, London or Berlin.

Applicants must have a PhD and preferably postdoctoral experience, with a strong track record in research relevant to the fields covered in the journal. Previous editorial and/or managerial experience is also required for this demanding position.

The successful applicant will lead an editorial and journalistic team and work closely with them on all aspects of the editorial process, including research manuscript peer review as well as writing, editing and commissioning Editorials, News, Features, Reviews, News & Views and other content. A key aspect of the job is liaising with the scientific community through laboratory visits and international conferences - willingness to travel is essential.

This leadership role calls for a keen interest in the practice and communication of science and authoritative command of the main trends in research and business related to biotechnology. The successful candidate will be dynamic and have excellent interpersonal skills. Broad scientific knowledge and training, outstanding literary skills and the ability to absorb new areas of research are indispensable.

Applicants should send a CV; a brief cover letter explaining their interest in the post and a statement (2,000-3,000 words) that encapsulates their vision for the journal's content, covering both the journalistic and research sections of the journal.

The closing date for applications is 11 July 2022.

We offer a comprehensive benefits package that includes:

- Medical, Dental and Vision

- Life and AD&D

- 401(k)

- Flexible Spending Accounts

- Transit Accounts

- Tuition Assistance

- Summer Hours
