Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology Editorial Fellow position

Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology will be adding an Editorial Fellow position, beginning January 1, 2018. The position is open to qualified candidates who hold the rank of Assistant Professor (or equivalent) and will last one year. During this time, the selected Fellow will work closely with the journal’s Editor, Dr. William W. Stoops, to develop editorial and publishing proficiency, enrich scientific knowledge and bolster written communication skills. It is anticipated that the Fellow will manage approximately one manuscript per month. This process will include identifying reviewers, making an editorial decision based on review and shepherding the manuscript through to publication if accepted, all with guidance from Dr. Stoops. The successful candidate will also be expected to participate in monthly meetings with Dr. Stoops to ensure goals are met and problems are identified and addressed. The majority of these meetings will be phone conferences, although in-person meetings at scientific conferences are also possible. Upon successful completion of the fellowship, the Editorial Fellow will become a member of the journal’s editorial board. All applications should include the following: 1) an interest statement, 2) a curriculum vitae and 3) three recommendation letters. Application materials are due to Dr. Stoops ([email protected]) on September 1, 2017 at 5 PM Eastern time and should be submitted as a single pdf file. Applications will be reviewed by members of the Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology editorial board for strength of the interest statement, research and publishing experience, manuscript review experience and enthusiasm of the recommendation letters. The top candidate will be notified of her/his selection by December 1, 2017. Address any questions to Dr. Stoops at [email protected].
