Cochrane seeks Associate Scientific Editors for the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions

Deadline for application 10th March 2017

Cochrane Reviews are used to inform healthcare and health policy internationally. These systematic reviews should consistently and reliably use the most appropriate and scientifically justified methods. These methods are described in the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions, which is updated and maintained to ensure that it reacts to novel methodological developments and is informed by the latest empirical evidence where possible. We need to maintain regular updates to ensure it consistently reflects best practice in systematic review methods. Cochrane is expanding its editorial team to sustain this important, highly cited handbook.

We are looking for skilled researchers with expertise and experience in systematic review methods. We have four Associate Scientific Editor positions. These Associate Scientific Editors will support two Senior Scientific Editors and a Senior Editor.
