Executive Editor – Nature Communications : London, United Kingdom : Naturejobs

“Nature Communications is Nature Publishing Group’s flagship Open Access journal. Since its launch in 2011, the journal has grown very rapidly — it now attracts in excess of 18,500 submissions per year, and in 2014 will publish almost 3,000 papers. The journal covers a range of topics across the life sciences and physical sciences, and recently celebrated its highest impact factor to date – 10.742.

As the journal has grown so rapidly, and with the move to being fully Open Access, Nature Communications now faces different challenges as well as new opportunities. We are therefore creating an exciting new position — Executive Editor, Nature Communications — to meet the journal’s evolving needs.
The newly appointed Executive Editor will lead Nature Communications through the next phase of its development. He or she will work with the editorial teams across the biological and physical sciences to create an editorial strategy for the journal, and then support an implementation plan to achieve these strategic goals. They will be the ‘face’ of the journal, both within NPG and externally, where they will need to be able to speak knowledgeably about its aims, scope and policies….”
