Are you passionate about science and looking to break into the publishing industry?

We have a new exciting vacancy in the editorial team of a London-based scientific publisher who are looking to hire a Commissioning Editor for their journals list, and are very happy to consider science graduates with limited publishing experience but a lot of enthusiasm.

Working on their medical and pharma titles, you will be primarily responsible for:

  • Commissioning topical articles on relevant new trends and research, keeping abreast of latest scientific advances in the allocated subject areas
  • Collaborating with the other editors and digital editors to work on digital products across relevant disciplines
  • Ensuring all published content maintains high editorial and scientific standards
