Join Our Team! Associate Editors wanted for the Centre for Medical Humanities Blog

Founded in 2010, the CMH blog has published some fantastic posts, won awards, help establish connections between researchers in the field, and attracted 8500 followers. But we know we can do more, and that it’s time for a revamp. We are seeking a team of part-time Associate Editors to help revitalise the site and invigorate debate in and beyond the field of medical humanities.

 

Associate Editors x 3 (2-3 hours/week, £11.86/hour)

The Associate Editors will be responsible for pro-actively curating, sourcing and creating content for the site within a particular area of focus. We want our editorial team to reflect and foster the diversity of the field – drawing in a range of experiences, affiliations, and disciplinary perspectives, and taking full advantage of the potential offered by online publishing. The Associate Editors will have a genuine passion for medical humanities and a relevant degree (ideally a Masters or PhD). They must also be self-motivated with excellent writing and editing skills, and the ability to build effective relationships with contributors and colleagues.

Applicants MUST be eligible to work in the UK.

Although formally based in Durham, this work can be done remotely and the exact working pattern is negotiable. For more information download the full Associate Editor job description.

To apply for this opportunity, send a CV and covering letter, which outlines what kind of content you are interested in producing/curating, to mail.cmh@durham.ac.uk

The closing date is 12noon on Thursday 24 May. Interviews will be held by Skype on Thursday 7 June. Successful candidates will be expected to attend a content development workshop in Durham on Thursday 28 June (for which expenses will be covered).

For more information contact CMH Manager, Sarah McLusky sarah.mclusky@durham.ac.uk in the first instance.
