JYI: Accepting Applications for Director of Publications

The Journal of Young Investigators (JYI) is an independent, non-profit, peer-reviewed, online science journal that is managed entirely by and for undergraduate students from across the world. JYI’s innovative manuscript review process serves as a platform for undergraduates to be involved in every step of the peer-review process, a valuable experience that cannot be found anywhere else. Our staff is made up entirely of undergraduate students, with the assistance of faculty and professional mentors. All of our staff receive comprehensive training from their department, which can include corporate management, science writing, journalism, editing, finance management, and programming. Since its founding in 1997, JYI has been the pioneering journal for reviewing undergraduate research, publishing science news, and providing career information. JYI’s unique mission has been recognized in Science, Nature, EurekAlert!, The Chronicle on Higher Education, and The New York Times.
The job of the Director of Publications is to design the format for all published materials. The DoP utilizes Adobe InDesign software, in addition to basic html coding, to assemble the text, figures, and tables of a paper into a user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing layout. The ideal candidate for this position would be able to consistently commit 5 hours each week to the job and remain in the position for at least a full year. Past experience with layout design or html is preferred but not required.
