Since its launch PLoS Medicine has had a stable core of professional editors, which we have gradually added to as the journal expanded. However, Barbara Cohen, one of our original editors, is sadly leaving us at the end of August – to travel the world – and so we are looking for a new editor to join the team. We’re looking for someone with experience in the editorial handling and peer review of research papers, but there are also opportunities to get involved in other parts of the journal. You’ll also need to be good at writing anything from editorials to press releases to short blurbs about papers. Oh, and you’ll need to be passionate about Open Access. If you’re interested see our job ad for further information.
