  • You will also act as an ambassador for Open Access publishing for a publisher with a strong impact and commitment to OA
  • You may be involved in product development and the conception, launch and road to success of new journals and other products

We are looking for people who:
  • Have a passion for science and its communication, and a keen eye for detail
  • Have a PhD degree in the natural sciences, preferably in materials science, physics, nanotechnology, chemistry, polymer science, life/health science, or a related discipline
  • Are dynamic team players with excellent organizational, time management, and communication skills (written and verbal).
  • Have experience with the peer review process (e.g., as author, reviewer, or editor)

  • Have an optics/photonics background and/or postdoc experience
