Associate Editor, Middle East Studies, Arab-Israeli Conflict
|Location:||District of Columbia, United States|
The Institute for Palestine Studies announces the opening of its search for Associate Editor of the Journal of Palestine Studies, the leading quarterly on Palestinian affairs and the Arab-Israeli conflict, copublished with the University of California Press. Now in its forty-second year, JPS combines scholarly articles in all disciplines broadly related to Palestine, Palestinians, and the Arab-Israeli conflict with essays on contemporary issues, book reviews, and extensive documentation of each quarter’s developments.
The new Associate Editor will succeed longtime Associate Editor Linda Butler, who will retire at the end of 2013. It is hoped that the new Associate Editor will be in place in summer 2013 to ensure a smooth transition. The Associate Editor, working closely with JPS Editor Rashid Khalidi, the JPS Editorial Committee, and journal staff, will be responsible for ensuring the quality, range, and balance of editorial content; planning future issues; actively soliciting articles and identifying new contributors; and, when appropriate, working with authors from concept and framing through to final product.
Applicants should have a thorough knowledge of Palestinian affairs and the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict, substantial experience in journal editing, political savvy, an interest in policy, and excellent communications skills. The ideal candidate will be dynamic, ambitious, and committed to moving JPS forward while continuing its tradition of high quality, accuracy and reliability. Familiarity with the rapid changes in (academic) journal publishing and alternative modes of diffusing information is highly desirable; a working knowledge of Arabic is a plus.
Applicants should email firstname.lastname@example.org with a cover letter, résumé/c.v., and contact information for three references. Formal interviews will be conducted for invited candidates at the IPS offices in Washington, D.C., in winter/spring 2013. No Phone Calls, Please!
