Job Posting: Editor

The Sixteenth Century Journal (SCJ) invites applications and nominations
for the position of editor. This editor will replace Professor Raymond
Waddington, who is stepping down after long years of service to the journal. The
new editor will have primary responsibility for submissions to the SCJ in
literature as well as in other fields of the individual’s expertise, and
will work with Merry Wiesner-Hanks, David Whitford, Kathryn Brammall, Gary
Gibbs, and other members of the SCJ staff. This is a three-year renewable
position, and the new editor will assume full responsibility upon
appointment in January 2012.
Qualifications include appointment at the rank of advanced associate or
full professor, a significant record of scholarly publication, an ability to
meet publication deadlines, an understanding of the scholarly communication
process, and a broad knowledge of early modern literature.
In publication since 1969, the Sixteenth Century Journal prints twenty to
twenty-five articles in a number of different fields and over four hundred
book reviews a year. The SCJ is dedicated to providing readers with
thought-provoking research and inquiry into the sixteenth century broadly defined
(i.e., 1450-1648). Its articles are designed to appeal to an
interdisciplinary audience; most focus on Europe, but an increasing number also examine
other parts of the world.
Nominations and applications should be sent by 15 September 2011 to David
Whitford at dwhitford at united dot edu. Letters of application should
include a cover-letter, CV and the names of three references.
