Publications Manager

We are looking for a multitasker to manage the editorial and production processes of the British Academy’s academic publishing programme. The right person will have experience in academic publishing, with good editorial and production skills. The person will also have some awareness of likely new developments within academic publishing (in particular in respect of open access), and will be able to adapt to any changes.

The British Academy publishes about 25 new titles a year. These include monographs, volumes of essays, critical editions of historical texts, and definitive catalogues of archaeological artefacts. Many of the publications arise from the Academy’s own programmes of activities, whether research programmes or events.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking for a responsible and challenging role in academic publishing.

Once you have had an opportunity to read through both documents carefully, please send a copy of your CV accompanied by a covering letter, outlining why you are particularly suited to this role and how you fulfil the criteria listed within the person specification.
