Call for Editorial Fellowship Nominations
Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy
Psychological Trauma: Theory, Research, Practice, and Policy has opened a call for nominations for two Editorial Fellow positions beginning January 1, 2020. The Psychological Trauma Editorial Fellowship program seeks to provide a pathway for early-career psychologists (ECPs) to gain editorial experience. One fellowship is specifically for ECPs from underrepresented groups based on race/ethnic, sexual orientation and gender diversity, and disability. This position will begin January 1, 2020 and will last one year.
During this time, the selected Fellows will work closely with the journal’s Editor, Dr. Kathy Kendall-Tackett, in managing manuscript submissions through the peer review process. It is anticipated that each Fellow will manage approximately one manuscript per month. The stipend for the Editorial Fellow is $1000/year.
This process will include identifying reviewers, making an editorial decision based on review and shepherding the manuscript through to publication if accepted, all with guidance from Dr. Kendall-Tackett and her team of Associate Editors.
The successful candidates will also be expected to participate in monthly conference calls with the Editor to ensure goals are met and problems are identified and addressed.
Fellows will be granted a complimentary subscription to the journal throughout their fellowship year. Upon successful completion of the fellowship, Editorial Fellows will become members of the journal’s editorial board.
· This position is open to qualified candidates who are no more than 7 years postdoctoral and are either researchers or scientist/practitioners.
· Some demonstratable experience in research and publishing, including (but not limited to) manuscript review experience.
· Fellows must demonstrate a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion practices in the field of psychology and in psychology research.
All applications should include the following:
1. A statement of interest (250 – 300 words);
2. A curriculum vitae;
3. Two letters of recommendation.
Materials are due to Dr. Kendall-Tackett (Kathy@PraeclarusPress.com) on September 15, 2019 and should be submitted as a single pdf file.
Applications will be reviewed by the Psychological Trauma Editor for strength of the interest statement, research and publishing experience, manuscript review experience and enthusiasm of the recommendation letters. The top candidates will be notified of selection by December 1, 2019. Address any questions to Dr. Kendall-Tackett at Kathy@PraeclarusPress.com.
