The Birkbeck Centre for Nineteenth-Century Studies invites applications from postgraduate research students in English, History, Media, and Art History for an Internship in Academic Publishing Online to manage our web journal: 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century (www.19.bbk.ac.uk)
The Centre wishes to appoint a postgraduate editorial intern in Academic Publishing Online to manage 19, working with another postgraduate intern under the supervision of the journal’s Editor, Dr Carolyn Burdett, and Assistant Editor, Dr David Gillott, and with the guidance of the Editorial Board. The one-year appointment is for 5 hours a week over 48 weeks, beginning on 1 March 2016. The appointee will be expected to participate fully in the day-to-day running of the journal and to help manage the Centre’s website. Responsibilities include technical maintenance and resourcing of 19 and the Centre’s website, liaising with contributors; copy editing essays; compiling and updating peer reviewer details; promoting and publicizing the journal; and attending Centre meetings. It is essential that you be prepared and able to work flexibly, as the rhythms of publishing inevitably involve greater and lesser periods of activity.
Deadline for applications is 23 September, 2016
