I am looking for someone to work as an Editorial Assistant for the journal Economic Papers which I now edit. They must be based in Melbourne.
The work involved is 1-2 days per week depending on the volume of work. The work involves proof-reading and dealing with academic journal submissions. It also involves maintaining records for refereeing of journal articles, reminding referees of work due and communicating with authors and the Economic Society of Australia by email and phone.
The work would be part carried out at my university but could also be partly done at home. It is a position that would be casual but would be fairly permanent - probably for several years - if things worked out well. The position would suit someone wanting regular, part-time employment. Remuneration depends on skills.
The main requirement is excellent written English language skills and the ability to communicate easily with authors and referees by telephone. Prior knowledge of economics is useful but not essential.
I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Closing date: 27 June 2008.
