Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology: Editorial Fellowship

Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology editorial fellowship position announced

Consider applying for an editorial fellowship with Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology

By William W. Stoops

Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology will be adding an editorial fellow position beginning Jan. 1, 2018. The position is open to qualified candidates who hold the rank of assistant professor or equivalent and will last one year. During this time, the selected fellow will work closely with the journal's editor, William W. Stoops, PhD, to develop editorial and publishing proficiency, enrich scientific knowledge and bolster written communication skills.

It is anticipated that the fellow will manage approximately one manuscript per month. This process will include identifying reviewers, making an editorial decision based on review and shepherding the manuscript through to publication if accepted, all with guidance from the journal's editor. The successful candidate will also be expected to participate in monthly meetings with the editor to ensure goals are met and problems are identified and addressed. The majority of these meetings will be phone conferences, although in-person meetings at scientific conferences are also possible.

Upon successful completion of the fellowship, the editorial fellow will become a member of the journal's editorial board.

All applications should include the following:

  • an interest statement
  • a curriculum vitae
  • three recommendation letters

Application materials are due to Editor William W. Stoops on Sept. 1, 2017, at 5:00pm ET and should be submitted as a single pdf file.

Applications will be reviewed by members of the Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology editorial board for strength of the interest statement, research and publishing experience, manuscript review experience and enthusiasm of the recommendation letters.

The top candidate will be notified of her/his selection by Dec. 1, 2017. Address any questions to Editor William W. Stoops.
