Clinical Radiology Editor vacancy

Are you interested in research in clinical radiology? Can you identify key practice changing issues on the horizon? Could you lead a team of colleagues across the UK and internationally to commission and select high-profile research papers? If so, why not apply to be the Editor of Clinical Radiology?

As the journal for the Faculty, and the top rated RCR member benefit, making sure that Clinical Radiology is the best it can be is a key priority for the College. We are looking to appoint a new Editor who will build on the success of the Journal to date, and who will be able to work towards agreed strategic goals to continuously improve and develop the Journal offering for our members and subscribers around the world.

Not only will the Editor commission articles, editorials and commentaries, they will also work with an engaged Editorial Board to identify topical issues (both now and in the future) to make sure that the Journal content is at the cutting edge of radiology practice. 

Alongside the support of the Editorial Board, the Editor will work closely with an editorial office to keep track of manuscripts and the peer review process to ensure that authors receive a timely service, and they will be supported by the Membership Engagement team within the RCR to deliver and develop the journal strategy, making sure that both the educational and profile raising remits are delivered.

Not just for our members!

The Journal is respected around the world, and the content isn’t only relevant to radiologists. As the Editor, you will be expected to identify articles of interest to the wider health and even lay population, working with experienced media professionals drawing out key messages to stimulate discussion of topical radiology issues.  

The role of Editor represents an opportunity to be a real leader in the field – don’t miss your chance to get involved with this hugely rewarding area of RCR work.

Applications should be sent to publications@rcr.ac.uk no later that Thursday 14 December; interviews will be conducted by a panel appointed by the Clinical Radiology Faculty Board on Friday 19 January 2018.

The appointment will be made by the Faculty Board in February 2018 in preparation for a handover period from March–September 2018, with the appointee taking up the office fully at the 2018 AGM.
