Associate Editor,Physical Review Letters(3 openings)

Who we are:

The American Physical Society is a nonprofit membership organization working to advance physics by fostering a vibrant, inclusive, and global community dedicated to science and society. APS represents more than 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories, and industry in the United States and around the world.

Position Summary:

Would you like to join our close-knit team of editors running the world’s leading physics journal? As an Associate Editor of Physical Review Letters, you would handle all phases of the peer review process and ultimately decide which papers we publish. For this important work, we seek, for three open positions, dynamic and personable individuals with a strong scientific background in one or more of these areas: quantum information science and technology, photonics, condensed matter physics, or materials science.

Our editors stay engaged with the physics community and abreast of the latest research by attending meetings and visiting research institutions around the world. In addition, editors participate in various editorial initiatives and cross-departmental APS projects.

No editorial experience is required, though we do expect familiarity with the review process as an author and referee. We will train you to develop the editorial skills needed to be part of our team. Candidates with considerable editorial experience in handling manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals, and demonstrated impact in that role, may qualify for the senior position.

This advertisem*nt seeks to fill three positions for Physical Review Letters (PRL) supervisors, each shared ¼ time with one of three specific Physical Review topical journals:

APS has a “remote first” concept that promotes equal treatment and equal access within the United States, independent of physical work location, with a majority of staff working primarily from remote work locations. APS values diversity and welcomes candidates from a variety of backgrounds. APS offers a dynamic work environment with an outstanding total compensation package, including salary, outstanding benefits, and excellent paid time off.
