The American Physical Society is conducting an international search for a new Lead Editor of Physical Review Fluids. The Lead Editor will provide intellectual leadership and vision for editorial standards and policies, direct the journal, and lead its editorial board and staff of editors. Physical Review Fluids (PRFluids) is dedicated to publishing innovative research that will significantly advance the fundamental understanding of fluid dynamics. PRFluids is strongly supported by APS’s Division of Fluid Dynamics (DFD), and closely interacts with the DFD Executive Committee to expand its scope into emerging research areas of fluid dynamics.
The ideal candidate will possess the following qualifications: stature in a field of research within the scope of PRFluids and a broad interest in the other areas it covers; editorial service with scholarly journals; ability to work effectively with an international community of authors, referees, and editors; an understanding of the challenges faced by authors from underrepresented groups; and the advocacy skills, integrity, and wisdom to lead the journal.
The Lead Editor may maintain their present position and location while devoting 10% to 20% of their time to this position. The initial appointment is for a three-year term with renewal possible after review. Compensation is negotiable and dependent on established time commitment. The desired starting date is 1 January 2021, but other arrangements can be made.
