S/he will be responsible for defining the aims, scope, and formats for the journal, to develop a broad, impactful, topical and cohesive journal that appeals to a wide community of contemporary international physics researchers. The Editor-in-Chief will draw on an impressive network of leading researchers to attract world-leading article submissions, and ensure the quality and value of the journal as a forum for the best research, analysis and ideas.

    The journal's strong contribution to the field will complement the premium chemistry and energy journals from Cell Press, Chem and Joule, as well as the new Cell Press journals Matter (covering materials science) and One Earth (covering sustainability).

    Previous editorial and/or management experience is preferred. The key qualities we look for are breadth of scientific interest and curiosity, the ability to think conceptually and critically about a wide range of scientific issues, advanced communication skills, leadership ability, and an aptitude for teamwork.

    As a member of the editorial and scientific community, the Editor-in-Chief will also have strong interpersonal skills and the ability to bring/build an exceptional and wide network of international contacts. He/she will travel extensively to attend conferences and visit research institutes.

    The Editor-in-Chief will be expected to collaborate with internal colleagues in production, marketing and business development and to contribute to the overall publishing strategy of the Journal and Cell Press as a whole.
