The search for the next editor-in-chief of the ACS Chemical Biology, and the search committee seeks input from the community to build a broad, diverse pool of candidates.

Nomination deadline: June 31, 2021

The inaugural editor Professor Laura Kiessling will end her service at the end of this year. Under their guidance, ACS Chemical Biology has developed into one of the most renowned magazines in this field. The new editor-in-chief will develop and execute his vision to continue the journal’s commitment to publishing high quality science and broadly representing the chemical biology community.

ACS’s editors-in-chief are active, accomplished researchers within the international scientific community serviced by the journal. You will have the scientific insight to know where the field is going and to assemble and lead a team of co-editors who will represent the scientific and demographic distribution of the field. Previous editorial experience is appreciated but is not a requirement for assuming the role of Editor-in-Chief.

The selection of the editor-in-chief of an ACS Publications magazine was typically “a highly confidential process,” wrote Professor Nicole Sampson in her July 2020 ACS Axial Article “Selection of a new editor-in-chief: insight into the search committee”. The process opened up considerably when the search committee for the Magazine of American Chemical Society (JACS) and JACS Au, chaired by Professor Sampson, invited nominations and self-nominations from across the global chemistry community.

The search committee for the next one ACS Chemical Biology The Editor-in-Chief has been appointed and is conducting his search in accordance with the ACS Bylaws and Regulations. The selection committee invites nominations, including self-nominations, from the global chemical biology community of qualified candidates to include them in its review process.
