Here below you can read a short summary of the position requirements and main tasks:
The European Federation of Geologists is a non-governmental professional organisation representing more than 45,000 geoscientists all across Europe. EFG’s main aims are to contribute to a safer and more sustainable use of the natural environment, to protect and inform the public and to promote a more responsible exploitation of natural resources. EFG’s members are National Associations, NAs, whose principal objectives are based in similar aims. The guidelines to achieve these aims are the promotion of excellence in the application of geology and the creation of public awareness of the importance of geoscience for society.
Summary of tasks (objectives and scope):
As part of our exciting new relationship with Nautilus science magazine, the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) has arranged to have a representative from our Member Societies on the Nautilus Editorial Board of Advisors. You are invited to nominate an individual from the geoscience community to serve in this position to help AGI bring geoscience into the Nautilus editorial space.
AGI is seeking nominees who possess a knowledge of publishing, are thoughtful about the full range of the geosciences, have an acute awareness of current events and trends in the geosciences, and maintain a perspective that is politically unbiased in promoting strong science.
As a member of the Nautilus Editorial Board of Advisors, this individual would weigh in on editorial direction and focus to help Nautilus expand its coverage of the geosciences through the soon to be launched Nautilus EARTH Channel. The content in the EARTH Channel will also be part of the feed of broader geoscience content into the online and print versions of the magazine. The direct participation of the geoscience community is vital to ensuring high-quality, relevant geoscience coverage in Nautilus.
This call for nominations is being offered exclusively to AGI Member Societies. If you would like to nominate a geoscience community representative, please reply with the individual's name, position, email address, phone number, and a brief basis for your nomination by 5pm ET Friday, June 14.
I encourage you to pass this opportunity along to your AGI Member Society colleagues, as there may be people within your organization who would embrace this type of opportunity. Thank you for helping to ensure that AGI maintains a strong voice in geoscience journalism.
