Call for Editor-in-Chief
Nanoscale and Microscale Thermophysical Engineering
About the role
Nanoscale and Microscale Thermophysical Engineering is a journal covering the basic science and engineering of nanoscale and microscale energy and mass transport, conversion, and storage processes. In addition, the journal addresses the uses of these principles for device and system applications in the fields of energy, environment, information, medicine, and transportation. We are looking for a new Editor-in-Chief with an academic background in related mechanical engineering fields, including heat transfer, thermodynamics, energy conversion and transfer, as well as the passion to drive the journal forward in an exciting period of change. It is a significant role, with high profile, but one that is achievable within a continuing busy working academic timetable.
The successful candidate will be responsible for editorial oversight and decision-making on submissions. He, or she, will have authority to accept articles following successful peer review, and will ensure that reviewers and authors adhere to the Journal’s Code of Publishing Ethics. There will be an agreed handover period with the out-going Editor-in-Chief to ensure seamless transition.
Taylor & Francis will provide remuneration for the role to cover any journal-related expenses. Taylor & Francis will also supply annual reports reflecting on the performance of the Journal. The Journal utilises an online editorial office system via ScholarOne™ Manuscripts.
Becoming the editor of a journal is a rewarding and fulfilling experience where you will build your own networks, promote the research that you are passionate about, and be recognized as a leading figure within the academic community.
Interested in applying? Here are the skills and attributes we would be looking for in a successful applicant:
• Someone who is active in the community with strong personal networks
• Confidence to engage with authors and researchers to solicit the highest quality submissions
• Strong organizational skills to ensure that submissions are handled in a timely manner
