Cofactor does not currently have any vacancies for employees.
If you are an experienced freelance trainer who has worked for a journal publisher or otherwise knows a lot about how scientific publishing works, do get in touch about assisting with Cofactor workshops.
Cofactor currently has most of the editors we need, but we still welcome new scientific editors with specific skills and qualifications. Please get in touch if you are a freelance editor and have both of the following:
A least a year’s regular experience of editing scientific, medical or technical research papers before submission to journals.
A PhD in a scientific subject (or equivalent eg in medicine).
Copyediting training is strongly preferred. Experience as a peer reviewer or journal editor (especially in house) would also help.
Editing experience must be as a paid editor. Experience of informally helping your colleagues with their papers is not enough.
Work is paid as a fixed fee per thousand words.
If you have the above skills and experience, do get in touch. Depending on your subject area and level of training and experience, we may not have work for you immediately and may keep your CV on file.
