We’re expanding again, and we’d like to welcome one or more new editors to the team.
For details about our overall expansion plans, international production team, and more background on the site, see the general announcement: “Would You Like to Join the Team? We’re Looking for More Faculty Members and Authors!”.
About the Editing and Management Team
A new Assistant Editor will work closely with the site’s founder and Managing Editor to streamline the transition of written work from draft form to final publication. This may include posts for either or both of the site’s Ask the Psychologist column and the site’s main blog, Psychology, Philosophy and Real Life, and potentially other areas of the site. The Assistant Editor will liaise with regular authors and other contributors in the relevant sections of the site, and their contribution will be specifically highlighted in the section of information labelled ‘Professionally Reviewed’, which is featured prominently at the end of each article.
Depending on the interests and experience of a new Assistant Editor, this post offers room for development into a high-profile Senior Editor role with significantly expanded management responsibility, including site marketing and strategy.
The new Assistant Editor will set their own preferred level of contribution to the publication process, and an honorarium will be paid that is commensurate with their level of contribution.
