Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance
Call for nominations for intern junior editorial positions at JEP:HPP
Deadline December 9th, 2022. Open to PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.
The editorial leadership team for the Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Perception and Performance seeks nominations for three intern junior editorial positions for early-career psychologists (IJEs). These positions are meant for those with an interest in developing skills for future roles in the scientific publishing process.
IJE’s will serve 12-month terms beginning January 1, 2023 and the position includes an honoraria stipend of $1,500 USD.
In service of APA’s recent resolutions to address systemic racism in psychology, this program seeks to provide opportunities for people from historically excluded groups, particularly Black, Indigenous, and other psychologists of color, as well as members from other communities which have been historically excluded from leadership opportunities in research and publishing.
IJE positions are open to all qualified candidates, including those from historically excluded groups, who have completed at least 3 years in a PhD program and are no more than 5 years postdoctoral. Individuals in non-academic positions with suitable qualifications are also eligible. Qualified candidates should have published original research in an area broadly relevant to the Journal.
IJEs will work with the journal’s editor, Isabel Gauthier, to work on the Journal’s pre-external review process. Each IJE will work on 3-4 manuscripts a month. The pre-external review process includes screening manuscripts for appropriateness, verifying adherence to instructions for authors and providing authors with feedback that can increase transparency and strengthen the manuscript before external review. This work will be done in concert with the editor, who will co-sign pre-external review letters.
This position does not require experience with peer-review, although it is welcomed, and IJEs will be working on manuscripts on a broad range of topics as represented in the Journal.
How to apply
Interested and qualified candidates should send a letter of interest introducing themselves, their expertise, and an explanation of their interest in and appropriateness for the position, along with a copy of their CV, to Isabel Gauthier (Isabel.email@example.com) and put “IJE nomination” in the subject line. Nominees are asked to send the contact information for their current mentor and let them know that they may be contacted for a reference.
Appointments will be made in December and positions will begin January 1, 2023.
