Could you be Renal Failure's new Editor-in-Chief?

We are looking for a new Editor-in-Chief with an academic background in acute renal medicine, as well as the passion to drive the journal forward in an exciting period of change. It is a significant role, with a high profile within the community, but also one that is achievable within a busy academic timetable.

Renal Failure primarily concentrates on acute renal injury and its consequences, but also addresses advances in the fields of chronic renal failure, hypertension, and renal transplantation. Bringing together both clinical and experimental aspects of renal failure, this publication presents timely, practical information for readers in the field. The editorial board is international and includes a wide variety of disciplines and perspectives.

The successful candidate will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on all submissions. He, or she, will have the authority to accept articles following successful peer review, and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the journal's Code of Publishing Ethics.

Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the reole to cover any journal-related expenses, and will supply annual reports reflecting on the performance of the journal. The journal utilises an online editorial office system to manage submissions via ScholarOne.

Becoming the editor of a journal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience where you will build your own networks, promote the research that you are passionate about, and be recognized as a leading figure within the academic community.

Interested in applying? Here are the skills and attributes we will be looking for in the successful applicant:

  • Someone who is active within the community with strong personal networks;
  • Confidence to engage with authors and researchers to solicit the highest-quality submissions;
  • Strong organizational skills to ensure that submissions are handled in a timely manner;
  • The ability to foster positive working relationships with colleagues such as Associate Editors.

If you would like to apply for the position of Editor-in-Chief please forward your CV, a covering letter and a vision statement to Niall Rundle, Managing Editor for Medicine & Health Journals, at niall.rundle@informa.com.

Your vision statement should be no longer than two pages and should cover:

  • Where you believe the field is going, and the journal’s place within it;
  • How you would work in partnership with the editorial board;
  • How you would maintain and increase the quality of submissions;
  • How you would work with authors.

The closing date for applications is 9th November 2018.
