Research Square is committed to helping researchers across the globe succeed by helping them communicate their work so they can get back to making discoveries.
We currently have full-time opportunities for highly motivated individuals to fill the role of Academic Editor (AE).
--We are looking for editors in all scientific fields, especially Earth Science, Materials Science, and Environmental Studies.
--We are also interested in editors with expertise in any field of engineering or computer science.
--We are not currently hiring in the humanities or social sciences, with the exception of Business (Management, Marketing, and Accounting) and Economics.
Our Academic Editors have a strong background in academic research and stellar editing skills. AEs bring their experiences in academia and in the lab to bear in producing high-quality edits of academic manuscripts in fields related to their research experience, directly connecting to our mission of helping researchers succeed. The AE position is a challenging one as it entails delivering a high volume of consistently high quality edits (several manuscripts per day); it requires a combination of strong editing and time management skills as well as expertise in a specific field of study.
Many AEs are remote employees who participate in regular videoconference meetings with their manager and team and enjoy strong bonds with their remote and local colleagues. Because the work is results oriented and communication is often asynchronous, written communication skills and a dash of tech savvy are a must.
