Job Announcement Text: 

Physical Review D, a leading journal in high-energy physics, gravitation, and cosmology, seeks a part-time (remote) Associate Editor with high scientific standing in one or more subfields of astrophysics and astronomy, in particular: multi-messenger astrophysics, high-energy neutrino astrophysics, and/or galactic and extragalactic astronomy. The Associate Editor would be expected to develop ties between PRD and researchers in these subfields, and to raise the journal’s overall visibility.

PRD already has a strong presence in astrophysics, covering particle astrophysics, gravitational waves, cosmic-ray physics, and dark matter. For example, the journal has published leading papers by the LIGO Collaboration, from the Dark Energy Survey, and on dark matter searches by XENON and other experiments. Building on these strengths, the new editor would lead the effort to attract submissions in a variety of areas, focusing on the rapidly growing subfields of multi-messenger astrophysics, high-energy neutrino astrophysics, and galactic and extragalactic astronomy. The ideal candidate would serve as an ambassador to the research community, handle a small number of papers, and help build a larger pool of referees with the appropriate expertise.

Interested applicants should write to edsearch@aps.org with a Cover Letter and CV. The deadline to apply is June 18th.
