Submit Your Application for Editor-in-Training for the ASCPT Family of Journals

The ASCPT Family of Journals has launched the call for applications for Editors-in-Training for the 2021-2022 term. Launched in 2019, the Editor-in-Training program established a unique opportunity for early career scientists to be a part of the core editorial teams of Clinical Pharmacology & Therapeutics, CPT: Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology, and Clinical and Translational Science. Editors-in-Training will be involved in the day-to-day manuscript consideration process, including peer-review and decision-making, assist with strategic planning, and will be mentored by experienced members of the journals' editorial teams. Building on strategies implemented by the inaugural editors-in-training, the 2021-2022 editors-in-training will assist with social media strategy for the journals as well as engagement with the ASCPT Early Career Community.

Each ASCPT Journal will run independent searches for 1-2 Editors-in-Training. The successful candidates will be outstanding early career scientists with a passion for our discipline, science, patients, drug discovery and development, and peer-review publishing. Candidates are not required to have any editorial experience; however, we are looking for candidates with an outstanding publication record (commensurate with career stage) and a strong motivation to get involved in a family of top peer-reviewed journals. Candidates will have an MD, PhD, or PharmD and several years of postdoctoral experience in clinical pharmacology, translational science, pharmacometrics, systems pharmacology, or a related field. Candidates should either be a current member of ASCPT or be prepared to join the Society if selected. Ideally, candidates should be active in the ASCPT Early Career Community or an equivalent network and have some experience with peer review. Candidates should have the skills and vision to take the social media presence of the ASCPT journals to the next level. Editor-in-Training roles for each journal are a one-year education and training opportunity for the selected candidates and, as such, no compensation will be provided.

To be considered for an Editor-in-Training position, please send your CV and a one page letter of interest to Elise Laffman-Johnson at elise@ascpt.org by COB, Friday, November 6, 2020. Applicants may only apply with one journal and must indicate their journal of choice in their cover letter. Interviews will be held with select applicants in late November, with exact dates to be determined by November 6, 2020, the final date for applications. Appointments will be confirmed for a January 2, 2021, start.

Any additional information can be obtained from Elise Laffman-Johnson at elise@ascpt.org.
