The Canadian Journal of Zoology is a broad zoological journal which has been publishing International research for 90 years, is seeking 4-6 new members for our Editorial Advisory Board. We are looking for colleagues who are willing to commit to up to a 5 year term and are especially keen to encourage academic colleagues at the Assistant Professor rank. The principal duties of Board members will be to 1) assist the Co-editors in identifying potential reviewers and 2) help the Co-editors to make editorial decisions about manuscripts where reviews are contentious and or divided. Our experience is that we would ask for assistance with 4-8 manuscripts per year at most. Currently we have about 300 submissions in total per year.
While we will pay some attention to regional location, we are primarily interested in evidence of candidate’s scientific expertise. We currently feel that we could use additional expertise in the broad areas of population genetics, population and community ecology (especially for non-mammals), ornithology, entomology, marine mammal biology, physiology of fish and other ectotherms.
We ask you to submit a brief CV and statement of interest to either of the co-editors. We would of course be happy to answer any questions or provide further information if necessary.
