After a decade of successful leadership under Lou Lanzerotti, AGU is now looking for a new Editor-in-Chief of Space Weather: The International Journal of Research and Applications. More details can be found here:
The Space Weather post is near the bottom of the page. As you will see, AGU has many active searches for editorships open right now, including a new EiC for Geophysical Research Letters and JGR-Planets, in case anyone is interested in those instead of Space Weather.
More on the journal of Space Weather can be found at its main page:
and don’t forget the print version counterpart to it, Space Weather Quarterly:
Space Weather has been going strong for 10 years now, and it has served our community very well as a bridge between the scientists that study the space environment and the engineers and technicians that use information about the space environment. It is a broad readership well beyond that of JGR-Space Physics, including policy makers in Washington, DC. I hope that there are people in the community willing to serve on the editorial board of Space Weather to continue this vital forum for our field and lead it through its next phase of development and growth.
The deadline for applications is rapidly approaching: March 7.
That’s only a week and a half away. Please think about this, contact Lou with specific questions about editing and leading this journal, and consider serving in this role for the space physics community. The application is simply a letter of interest and a CV. In fact, you can even nominate someone else, and the search committee will take this into account in their deliberations.
