SEN Journal: Online Exclusives is the new online forum by Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (SEN), a fully peer-reviewed journal published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Association of Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism. In line with the print journal’s profile, SEN Journal: Online Exclusives publishes content on a rolling basis on the themes of identity, ethnicity and nationalism, and encourages innovative submissions from a broad range of disciplines and regions with particular attention to up-and-coming scholars, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students working in the field.
Due to recent expansions in the publication programme of SEN Journal: Online Exclusives, we are currently recruiting for the position of Web Editor. Your tasks will include general website maintenance, soliciting of online content, copy-editing and liaising with our publisher on marketing of the journal.
Applicants should have proficient computer skills including the ability to design and maintain websites, good interpersonal skills and a proven track record in academic writing. Previous training in the fields of ethnicity and nationalism studies is welcome, but not essential. The ability to meet deadlines and respond in a timely fashion to requests and correspondence is of particular importance. Applicants must be able to commit at least a year when assuming the position.
Applications from PhD students that reside in London and can easily reach our premises at LSE are particularly welcome. These positions are unpaid but represent an invaluable opportunity for PhD candidates and anyone looking to have a career in publishing or journalism or simply interested in enhancing their interest in the interdisciplinary field of nationalism and ethnicity. Typically, these positions do not require more than 4-5 hours per week although this may vary somewhat depending on the stage in the publication cycle.
Please email a letter of interest and your CV to the Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org by 1st October 2011.
