Science Editor - 15-20 Hours Per week

We have a super new part-time, permanent editorial role for someone who is PhD qualified in an appropriate biological or medical science subject, to work for a highly respected online medical journal, in the areas of human reproduction and physiology.  The organisation has been based in the Cambridge area, but the role will involve a remote working arrangement.

Our client is looking for a Science Editor to undertake final post-acceptance checking of manuscripts prior to copy-editing.  The aim of this role is to ensure a high quality of scientific content of manuscripts by checking scientific and numerical validity, accuracy and completeness of information, which will include figures and tables.

The Science Editor will also be required to communicate with authors and members of the Journal’s Editorial Panel, regarding any queries arising from inaccuracies or deficiencies in data presentation, inconsistencies, and omissions of essential information or suggestions for additions/alterations to the text.

This is an ideal role for someone with the relevant qualifications, who is looking for a permanent part-time role of around 15-20 hours per week (the hours are flexible, and can be arranged).

The successful candidate will  be qualified to PhD level in an appropriate biological or medical science subject (essential), and will have a methodical approach and a keen eye for detail. A very high standard of written and spoken English is essential as is a good level of IT literacy, as manuscripts are handled online, and strong communication skills.  Previous experience of medical publishing would be useful, but isn’t essential as training will be provided, however the successful person will need to be able to demonstrate sufficient relevant work experience. Candidates must be based in the UK.

This role is available immediately and for further detailed information please forward your CV and a short cover not outlining your interest and salary expectations.
