AIP Publishing, in collaboration with the American Crystallographic Association, is seeking an Editor-in-Chief for Structural Dynamics (SDY).
Candidates are expected to be highly regarded scientists with research expertise in structural dynamics research, including both experimental and theoretical methods and techniques that allow a visualization of the electronic and geometric structural changes in real time of chemical, biological, and condensed-matter systems. Methods and techniques of current interest can be viewed here: https://aca.scitation.org/sdy/info/focus. The successful candidate will bring vision and a passion for excellence to the role as well as strong leadership and interpersonal skills. Adopting a strategic view will be important, as will working collaboratively with a committed editorial team and the Publisher to translate that strategy into a vibrant editorial program.
The Editor-in-Chief will be eligible for an honorarium or compensatory payment to his or her institution. There are no geographic limitations to the Editor-in-Chief’s location. The initial appointment is for five years with the possibility of renewal.
This is an exciting and challenging position at a time of change in scholarly communication. The search committee welcomes either applications or nominations of possible candidates. A nomination can be a short note suggesting a suitable candidate. An application should consist of a Curriculum Vitae and a statement of the applicant’s vision and aspirations for Structural Dynamics. The statement should be no more than 3 pages and should include a few paragraphs on your leadership experience and scientific accomplishments that make you uniquely qualified for the Editor-in-Chief position.
Applications or nominations received before May 1, 2020 will receive full consideration. A Search Committee will advise AIP Publishing regarding suitable candidates for the position. Please send applications or nominations by e-mail with the subject line ‘Editor Search’ to the SDY Search Committee: StructuralDynamics@aip.org.
Structural Dynamics is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal highlighting research articles on structural determination and dynamics of chemical and biological systems and solid materials, enabled by emerging new instruments (e.g. XFELs, high harmonic generation, electron sources, etc.) and new experimental and theoretical methodologies. It published 66 articles in 2019, and was cited over 650 times.
