The University of London

The School of Advanced Study (SAS) within the University of London is a unique institution in UK higher education. It is the UK’s national and international centre for the support, promotion and facilitation of research in the humanities, comprising a set of renowned institutes and central academic initiatives. The University of London Press is supported by the School of Advanced Study.

The Role

The University of London Press team has a fantastic opportunity for a new Journals Editorial Manager to join it at an exciting moment in its history.

We are looking for a new part-time Journals Editorial Manager to join the team who will be responsible for managing these journals, with the possibility of exploring ideas for new journals to add to the University of London Press’s own portfolio. The Journals Editorial Manager plays a key role in the continued success of the two flagship journals in academic and commercial terms.

The role unusually sits between publishing and academia, liaising between the external publishers of the two journals and their academic editors, authors and colleagues at the Warburg Institute and the Institute of Classical Studies. The role reports to the Head of Publishing at the University of London Press, with the journals published by external publishers (currently Oxford University Press for the Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies, and Chicago University Press for the Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes). The postholder will also contribute towards the wider strategic development of UoL Press, particularly in relation to changes in open access journal publishing and new innovative digital formats.

We are ideally looking for someone with experience in academic journal publishing or related industries, but are also open to candidates with academic experience in relevant disciplines looking to acquire additional publishing skills. As the role sits between the relevant Institutes who publish the journals, the external publishers and the University of London Press team, we are particularly seeking candidates who have the ability and proven experience in working autonomously, managing multiple stakeholders across projects and successfully determining their own priorities.

If you would like to make your mark in our dynamic and evolving Press publishing work which advances the humanities, please get in touch!
