Renal Failure

Would you like to be the Editor-in-Chief of Renal Failure?

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

Renal Failure primarily concentrates on acute renal injury and its consequence, but also addresses advances in the fields of chronic renal failure, hypertension, and renal transplantation. For more information, see here.

The successful candidate will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions. He, or she, will have authority to accept articles following successful peer review, and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the Journal’s Code of Publishing Ethics. There will be an agreed handover period with the out-going Editor-in-Chief to ensure seamless transition.

Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the role to cover any journal-related expenses. Taylor & Francis will also organise regular board meetings, and we will supply annual reports reflecting on the performance of the Journal. The Journal utilises an online editorial office system 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.

Someone who is active in 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
