Nature Climate Change is a multi-disciplinary journal publishing high-quality research related to all aspects of climate change. The journal’s scope includes both the natural and social sciences and economics.

We now have an opening to join our team as an Associate or Senior Editor. This is an exciting opportunity to help shape the physical science content of the journal. The candidate must have a PhD, and preferably postdoctoral experience, with a strong research record in an area of physical climate science, for example atmospheric science, hydroclimate, climate dynamics, or oceanography, though strong candidates with other environmental science expertise will be considered. The ideal candidate will have demonstrably broad interest in the physical basis of environment and climate, including social issues, across geographical and temporal scales. Editorial experience would be beneficial, but is not required as full training will be given.

Our professional editors make the final decision on what we publish. The successful applicant will play an important role in determining the representation of natural science dimensions of climate change in the journal. They will work closely with the other editors on the on-going development of Nature Climate Change and all aspects of the editorial process, including manuscript selection, commissioning and editing of Comments, Perspectives, Reviews and News & Views, and writing for the journal. A key aspect of the job is liaising with the academic community through institutional visits and international conferences, as well as engaging with stakeholders.

This is an intellectually stimulating position. Broad scientific knowledge and training, excellent literary skills, the ability to absorb new areas of research, and a keen interest in the practice and communication of research are prerequisites. The successful candidate will, therefore, be dynamic and have excellent interpersonal skills. The salary and benefits will be competitive, reflecting the critical importance and responsibilities of this position.

The position will be based in our London, Berlin, Shanghai, or New York office. All employees are working remotely until the offices re-open. Once when the offices re-open, all employees will be required to be based in the office in line with our working from home policy.

Nature Climate Change is part of a dynamic editorial and publishing environment that also includes Nature, Nature Energy, Nature Sustainability, Nature Geoscience, Nature Communications and Nature Reviews Earth & Environment.

Applicants must provide:

· A CV (including their class of degree and a brief account of their research and other relevant experience)

· A brief cover letter explaining their interest in the post and their salary expectations

· A Research Highlight (200 words or less) on a recent paper from the climate change literature

· An outline for a special issue of Nature Climate Change, featuring 3-4 commissioned review or opinion pieces with suggested authors.

The closing date for applications is 8 August 2021.
