The Cambridge Political Economy Society (CPES), a charitable organization devoted to the promotion and dissemination of heterodox economics and political economy, wishes to appoint a Managing Editor for one of its academic journals, the Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society.
The post is part-time (50 percent) - for 17.5 hours per week - with a 6 months probationary period. The post is renumerated at point 53 on the University Salary Scale (Grade 7, 3). For this post this provides a salary of £23,359 per annum.
The successful candidate will have the experience of managing the day-to-day editorship of an academic journal or similar publication or similar experience gained from managing complex projects in academia.
More information about the Society and its activities can be found at www.cpes.org.uk. The closing date for applications is 23 April 2021, with interviews planned for the week beginning 3-7 May. Applicants should include a CV and covering letter, setting out relevant experience, which should be submitted by email to Philippa Millerchip at email@example.com. Any queries about the post can also be sent to this email.
The Cambridge Journal of Regions Economy and Society is an international multi-disciplinary journal publishing academic papers on the spatial dimensions of contemporary socio-economic-political change. There are bi-weekly editorial meetings which the Managing Editor will need to attend, however CJRES is open to flexible working arrangements, should the successful candidate wish to work mainly from home. Three issues of the journal are published each year with each issue devoted to a specific topic. The Managing Editor will be engaged in intensive liaison with editors and potential authors to work papers up to the submission stage. The journal is owned by its parent body (the Cambridge Political Economy Society) and is run as a cooperative: there is no single Academic Editor as editorial responsibilities are shared between the members of the international Editorial Board.
The precise location of the Managing Editor is flexible, and open to discussion with the Editors. Home working may well be a possibility. However, the Managing Editor will be expected
to attend occasional in-person meetings in Cambridge. Whatever the location, the requisite IT equipment will be provided by the Journal.
CPES and the CJRES editors are committed to equal opportunities for all, and particularly to advancing the representation of women across all areas of academia. The Journal Editors recognise that employees may wish to have working patterns that fit in with their caring responsibilities or work-life balance. Due consideration will also be given to applicants who have had career breaks for reasons including maternity, paternity or adoption leave, disability or illness.
The Managing Editor is the chief channel of communication between the Editors (currently 19 in number) and Authors, and between the Editors and the Publisher, Oxford University Press, and is responsible for the co-ordination of all aspects of the Journals submissions and publication administration. More specifically, the tasks include:
