JAWRA is seeking an Associate Editor for Atmospheric Science and Hydrometeorology. This position plays a crucial role in examining the impacts of climate change on the hydrologic regime. While JAWRA papers in this discipline typically have not focused on basic climate research, many have used techniques such as downscaling to apply the output of climate models to regional areas.
JAWRA Associate Editors (AEs) serve as primary advisors to the JAWRA Editor. Responsibilities fall into two areas: reviews and subject development. The AE for Atmospheric Science and Hydrometeorology handles between 10 and 15 papers per year. All manuscripts are processed through our ScholarOne Manuscripts™system, with the AE selecting reviewers and, when reviews return, making a recommendation to the Editor. AE’s are encouraged to seek out qualified authors in their subject areas and encourage them to submit papers to JAWRA. These could be individual submittals or as featured collections of related papers organized around an introduction.
Associate editorship is a volunteer position earning our heartfelt thanks and an invitation to our annual AE luncheon. It also offers the opportunity to make a difference on the cutting edge of multidisciplinary water resources. The term of an AE is three years, but may be extended by mutual agreement.
Interested individuals should email their CV to the Editor at email@example.com. We are happy to answer any questions. We will hold this position open at a minimum until February 20th, but early application is encouraged.
