On behalf of the international volcanological community the IAVCEI Executive Committee would like to thank James White for his outstanding term as Executive Editor of the Bulletin of Volcanology.
I am sure you will all agree that James and Linda have done a fantastic job of managing the journal over the past years.
As James’s term comes to an end, the IAVCEI Executive Committee (EC) seeks expressions of interest for the role of Executive Editor of the Bulletin of Volcanology, for a term of 6 years, starting in July 2017. The role requires familiarity with a breadth of volcanology topics, as well as commitment to timely editorial handling and improving the journal for volcanologists, including striving to increase its impact factor. Previous editorial experience is required, and we especially invite expressions of interest from existing Associate Editors of the Bulletin or other journals of similar specialization and importance. The role includes funds for an Editorial Administrator. The new Executive Editor and Editorial Administrator will be trained by the current editorial team (James and Linda White) during a month-long transition period. For more information on the specific requirements and time commitments of the role please consult the Terms of Reference below.
Your expression of interest should include a cover letter briefly explaining what you think you can bring to the role, as well as a brief CV.
IAVCEI President (for the executive committee and the membership of IAVCEI)
