Job: Editor of The Euroscientist magazine

Euroscience, the European Association for the Promotion of Science & Technology, wishes to appoint an editor for its online magazine the Euroscientist.

Over the last two years The Euroscientist has been restyled into blog format and repositioned as a facility for the presentation and discussion of issues of interest to scientists across Europe and beyond. The focus is on issues like science and society, science policy or the position and careers of scientists, not on popular science. The target audience is composed of policymakers, researchers and other members of the research community, research funders, the science media and the interested lay public

The editorship is a part-time post which we consider could fit well into the working life of an energetic and imaginative freelance science/technology journalist. We have a small annual budget and we are flexible about how this might be spent: we are looking for someone with some innovative ideas about how to use the money to deliver a publication/discussion service for EUROSCIENCE members and the science-related community of Europe more widely.

Applicants should reply by email providing a CV and a letter outlining their ideas and what they feel they might bring to The Euroscientist to Peter Tindemans at office@euroscience.org

Deadline: August 1st 2012
