Endoscopy Junior Co-Editors Board

Endoscopy is looking for talented and ambitious young gastrointestinal endoscopists to join our Junior Co-Editors Board and participate in the trainee program for aspiring scientific journal editors. Working with the Editors-in-Chief and the Co-Editors, the Junior Co-Editors will focus on developing the key skills needed to successfully edit a scientific journal.

Junior Co-Editors will learn about all the steps of the review process, from submission to acceptance, including:

  • the criteria for selecting papers for review

  • how to succinctly assess the value and the limitations of a paper

  • how to interpret and assess reviewer recommendations

And, of course, program participants can expect to greatly improve their scientific reading and writing skills.

Appointments will be for two years and every Junior Co-Editor will be mentored by an experienced Co-Editor throughout this period. Applicants need to be aware that this position entails overseeing the review process of about 15–20 manuscripts or E-Video submissions per year as well as participating in regular meetings and tutorials (online).

Applicants should be:

  • specializing in gastrointestinal endoscopy (any aspect)

  • interested in the publishing and editorial processes behind Endoscopy

  • born on or after 1 January 1986

  • fluent in English, especially in writing

  • experienced (to some extent) in scientific writing

  • reliable, able to quickly respond to emails and tasks

  • active on social media

Applications should comprise:

  • A letter of motivation (max. 1 page) and a short video (max. 2 mins) about you, your work, and why you want to participate in this program

  • Your CV

  • A written endorsement from your supervisor or Chief of Department/Division.

  • A written reference or a person to contact for a reference

Upload your application, no later than 15 December 2021, to https://transfer.thieme.de/dropoff, addressing the files to [email protected] (“Recipient”).

We are looking forward to receiving plenty of applications!
