Careers at AJE

Editor - Earth and Geo Sciences

Details about this position:

At AJE, we believe that every researcher deserves a voice, so we offer author-oriented solutions to overcome the many barriers to the publication process for researchers around the world. We are actively recruiting native English speakers from a wide range of Earth Science fields to edit scholarly manuscripts originally written by non-native speakers so that language is not a barrier to the communication of ideas. AJE's editors work on a contract basis and can select their areas of academic expertise, set their own availability, and determine the right workload; these settings can be adjusted at any time. Compensation is based on manuscript length, the quality of the original manuscript, and the customer's chosen turnaround time.

Our current needs are in the following fields:
-Atmospheric Science/Climate
-Geochemistry
-Geographic Information Systems
-Geography
-Geology
-Geophysics
-Geoscience
-Meteorology
-Paleoclimate
-Paleontology
-Solid Earth Science

To qualify as an editor, applicants must:
• either be enrolled in a graduate program or possess a graduate or professional degree;
• be a native English speaker; and
• have a documented past or present affiliation (in the form of a degree, current enrollment, postdoctoral training, employment, or faculty appointment) with one of the schools or institutions from which we recruit Earth/Environmental Science editors.

The candidates who have been most successful in the contract editor role are autonomous but receptive to feedback, have editing experience or a desire to gain such experience, have had exposure to the literature of their fields, are adaptable, have the flexibility to edit at least a few assignments each week, and seek to make a positive impact on their field of expertise.

If you have any questions about this opportunity, please email our Recruitment Manager.
