looking for in the papers we seek to publish.
• This role is located in either our: London, Shanghai, Berlin or New York
office. The position is offered on a full-time, permanent basis.
• Editorial experience is not required, although applicants with
significant editorial experience are encouraged to apply and will
potentially be considered for Senior Editor positions.

Applicants should include a CV, a covering letter explaining their interest
in the post and their preferred office of employment, and a separate
concise (400 words) discussion of recent scientific developments that you
found particularly exciting stating why).
