PLoS ONE is the first and (so far) the most successful scientific journal specifically geared to meet the brave new world of the future. After starting it and bringing it up from birth to where it is now one year later, Chris Surridge has decided to move on.
Do you think you have the skill and experience to pick up where he leaves off? Do you want to be at the cutting edge of scientific publishing? If so, take a look at the new job ad for the Managing Editor of PLoS ONE:
The overall responsibility of this position, which will be located in the San Francisco office, is to lead the editorial staff and editorial board who run PLoS ONE — a ground-breaking online-only publication covering the full breadth of scientific and medical research. PLoS ONE was launched one year ago, and is already publishing over 150 peer-reviewed research articles each month.
While other PLoS journals have a narrower scope (Biology, Medicine, Pathogens, Genetics, Computational Biology, Neglected Tropical Diseases), ONE is supposed to be the ONE place for all areas of science. Thus, your scientific background does not necessarily have to be in biomedical research to be eligible and welcome for this job, if your experience and organizational skills are a perfect match for the job.
