Applications invited for the role of Bioinformatics Executive Editor

Following a successful eight year term, Alex Bateman will be stepping down from his role of co-Executive Editor of Bioinformatics at the end of 2012. The journal is therefore seeking applications for the role of Executive Editor to lead the journal alongside Alfonso Valencia.

This role is central to Bioinformatics' success and involves working closely with the editorial team, the publisher Oxford University Press, and representatives of the International Society for Computational Biology, of which Bioinformatics is an official journal.

The position is expected to take ~5 hours per week (although variable).

If you would like to express your interest please send your CV to Claire Bird (claire.bird@oup.com) by 14th May 2012. All applications will be acknowledged.

Those who have expressed an interest may subsequently be asked to submit a précis of Bioinformatics and an editorial vision for the journal.

The initial term of office is planned for January 2013 to December 2015, subject to agreement.
