LabX Media Group (the parent company of The Scientist, Technology Networks, and Lab Manager) is looking for a senior editor to assist with re-launching a news magazine written for life scientists working in translational, pre-clinical, drug development, and clinical research in industry, government, non-profit, and academic labs.
We are looking for a creative, collaborative, entrepreneurial science editor with an in-depth understanding of life science research and familiarity with the target audience. Working closely with the content director, the senior editor will build the new editorial scope and mission from the foundation up, ensuring that every piece of content meets the highest editorial standards. He or she will guide the new editorial team, lead creation of the scientific news content, and develop a strong, engaged audience.
The senior editor will oversee publication of 10 print issues per year, in addition to website and newsletter content. In time, he or she will also introduce multimedia content, including infographics, podcasts, videos, and other interactive content. The role will be supported by freelance and in-house writers and editors, expert graphic designers, production editors, marketers, web developers, and business managers with proven records of success.
As this is a re-launch, we expect the senior editor to guide the rapid growth of the publication, leading to opportunities for career development and advancement.
