Job Vacancy at Perspectives on Terrorism

Assistant Editor for Conference Monitoring

The Editorial Team of Perspectives on Terrorism (PoT) is looking for a new member whose task would be to maintain an online database on academic and professional conferences on terrorism and related subjects (e.g. radicalisation, countering violent extremism). The person we look for will be responsible for creating an online conference calendar that provides relevant information (venue, date, organiser, principal topics, call for papers, keynote speakers, and registration details) in the database. The Assistant Editor for Conference Monitoring will regularly provide conference-related information to over 8,000 readers and 16,000 social media followers of Perspectives on Terrorism, with updates and Conference Alerts. The new Assistant Editor would also develop and maintain a list of contact information of major associations and centres that are organisers of specialised conferences and workshops relevant to the study of terrorism and counterterrorism.

Successful applicants for the new Assistant Editor for Conference Monitoring position should have relevant computer- and Internet-search skills for creating an online web portal with direct hyperlinks to relevant conference information. We will ask for a commitment to this task of monitoring conferences for a period of minimally two years. Like all other positions with the Terrorism Research Initiative and its journal Perspectives on Terrorism, this one is not remunerated. The ideal person we have in mind would have experience as a reference librarian, but we are also open to applications from others who have relevant experiences or are willing to invest time in acquiring these on the job.

Applications with a letter of motivation, a CV and two references should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief of PoT at < [email protected]> before June 1, 2018.
