ASEN: Editorial Team Opportunity

10 March 2014

Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (SEN) is a fully peer-reviewed journal, published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Association of Studies in Ethnicity and Nationalism (ASEN). SEN publishes three issues per year on the themes of ethnicity, nationalism and identity, 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 SEN's publication programme, we are currently looking for new members of our editorial team. Your tasks will include the soliciting and processing of manuscript submissions, author correspondence and general office support.

Applicants should have excellent time management skills (including the ability to work to deadlines and respond to emails on a timely basis) and a commitment to the themes of the journal. A background in academic writing and research is desirable but we are also happy to consider those with non-academic backgrounds. 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 the London School of Economics and Political Science (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 who is simply interested in learning more about the interdisciplinary field of nationalism and ethnicity. Typically, these positions do not require more than 2-3 hours per week although this may vary somewhat depending on the stage in the publication cycle. To apply, please email a letter of interest and your CV to the Editors at sen@lse.ac.uk  by 31 March 2014.

For queries or further information on SEN's publications and activities, please refer to the SEN websites here and here or contact Ulrike Theuerkauf (u.g.theuerkauf@lse.ac.uk) and Carolyn Heitmeyer (c.m.heitmeyer@lse.ac.uk).
