Biodiversity – a Journal of Life on Earth is looking for a Book Review Editor!

We are looking for a skilled writer who is active in biodiversity research and/or has an interest in the field with high levels of English competency and a flair for language. The reviewer will be required to read two books and/or publications every three months on a biodiversity-related topic and write a 300-350 word review encompassing it. Reviews can be written by other reviewers, those with perhaps more expertise in the subject matter of specific books, as long as the reviews are not copyrighted elsewhere. The Book Review Editor will be responsible for coordinating those reviews. We invite applicants to provide us with a short bio, areas of interest and professional background to Biodiversity’s Managing Editor Vanessa Reid at: reidva@biodiversityconservancy.org. Please send us some sample reviews of previous book, publication and/or literature reviews.

This is currently a voluntary position and is an opportunity for the successful applicant to stay abreast of current publications in the field of biodiversity as well as receiving printed or electronic book samples offered for review by publishers. It is also a great opportunity to connect with other specialists working in the field of biodiversity thanks to BCI’s extensive network of scientists, academics, field practitioners, activists and many more.
