AGU is in the process of searching for a new Editor in Chief for the Radio Science Journal, to succeed Dr. Paul Cannon who is stepping down after five years. Information about the search is posted on the AGU web site at http://publications.agu.org/files/2014/10/EiC-ad-RS.pdf and http://publications.agu.org/journals/editors/editor-search/. Interested scientists are asked to submit a Letter of Interest and their CV, the deadline for which is tentatively 31st October, although this may be extended as needed until a suitable candidate is found.
The venerable Radio Science Journal is unique among AGU Journals in that it covers a much broader range of topics than just those directly connected with AGU’s ionospheric propagation and plasma disciplines. The International Union for Radio Science (URSI, http://www.ursi.org/en/home.asp) cosponsors the Journal, which is the preeminent, interdisciplinary publication for the broad field of radio science research.
AGU hopes to select a new Editor in Chief by the end of this year, 2014. This individual will then have the responsibility of selecting additional Editors and Associate Editors as needed, to guide Radio Science into the future, in collaboration with URSI.
If this is something that may interest you, please consider submitting a Letter of Interest and your CV to AGU at pubmatters at agu.org. Please also consider identifying and encouraging colleagues whom you think might be suitable.
Chair, AGU Radio Science Editor in Chief Search Committee
