Description


Associate Editor, Materials Research & Applied Science


The Physical Review journals seek a talented and ambitious Associate Editor with expertise and experience working in a research field within the broad areas of materials science and engineering, physics, or chemistry. Particular areas of interest include, but are not limited to, materials for energy applications, quantum information science, and soft matter. The Associate Editor will work with a team of editors across several journals, managing the review process and making editorial decisions as necessary. The Associate Editor will also be responsible for building connections with researchers and developing content from a wide range of topics. For this exciting role, we seek an Associate Editor who has the breadth, skills, and drive to support journals that meet the needs of a highly multidisciplinary research community.


The APS has a “remote first” concept that promotes equal treatment and equal access within the United States, independent of physical work location, with a majority of staff working primarily from remote work locations. APS values diversity and welcomes candidates from a variety of backgrounds. APS offers a dynamic work environment with an outstanding total compensation package including salary, outstanding benefits, and excellent paid time off.

Responsibilities:

Editorial:

  • Evaluate the scientific content of manuscripts in a critical and independent manner and manage all aspects of peer review for a range of manuscripts in Physical Review Materials and other journals, as appropriate.
  • Decide to editorially reject or proceed with peer review based on the level of scientific advance as well as the journal scope.
  • Maintain high ethical standards and fairness at all editorial stages.
  • Suggest top content for highlighting.
  • Solicit high quality papers.

Technical:

  • Ensure that Physical Review standards for general style, guidelines, and technical issues are maintained, by communicating with authors, in-house journal support staff, and external vendors.
  • Use tools to conduct, analyze, and enhance the peer review process.
