Dear Colleagues,

The AGU/URSI journal Radio Science is now searching for a new Editor-in-Chief to succeed Phil Wilkinson starting sometime in the Fall.  This is an exciting opportunity as AGU is celebrating 100 years in 2019 and Radio Science has some unique activity planned.

The advertisement is attached and also below my signature, and please feel free to pass it on as you see fit.  The application deadline is May 30, and the application consist of a letter of interest and a CV.

Thanks and best wishes,


Morris B. Cohen, Ph. D.

Editor in Chief Needed for Radio Science
AGU is looking for a dynamic, well-organized scientist with high editorial standards and strong leadership skills to serve a 4-year term as the editor in chief for this exciting journal.
The Editor-in-Chief is the principal architect of the scientific content of the journal. The EIC is an active scientist, well-known and well-regarded in his/her discipline. The EIC must be active in soliciting the best science from the best scientists to be published in the journal. Working with the other editors and AGU staff, the EIC is the arbiter of the content of the journal. Among other functions, the EIC is responsible for:

  *   Act as an ambassador to the author/editor/reviewer/scientist community.
  *   Set the strategy for the journal.
  *   Lead the editor selection process.
  *   Assign and balance review work load.
  *   Decisions of ethics.
  *   Review and contribute to periodic monitoring reports.
  *   Conduct and attend meetings.

Journal Scope

Radio Science publishes original scientific contributions on radio-frequency electromagnetic-propagation and its applications. Contributions covering measurement, modelling, prediction and forecasting techniques pertinent to fields and waves - including antennas, signals and systems, the terrestrial and space environment and radio propagation problems in radio astronomy - are welcome. Contributions may address propagation through, interaction with, and remote sensing of structures, geophysical media, plasmas, and materials, as well as the application of radio frequency electromagnetic techniques to remote sensing of the Earth and other bodies in the solar system.

The journal does not publish papers on propagation in biological media, nor optical phenomena. The journal does not publish papers on the geophysics of space plasmas which are better suited for publication in JGR: Space Physics

If you would like to be considered for the Editor in Chief position of Radio Science, send your curriculum vitae with a letter of interest via email to pubmatters at agu.org<mailto:pubmatters at agu.org>. If you would like to nominate a highly qualified colleague, send a letter of recommendation to the same email address. Please make sure that you specify Radio Science in the subject line of the email.

                                         Deadline for applications is 30 May 2018
