Call for Editor: Public Affairs Quarterly

I share the following announcement:

"After years of excellent service, Bob Talisse is stepping down as the editor-in-chief of Public Affairs Quarterly on January 1, 2012; I'll be taking over then, with the unenviable job of doing as well as Bob has done. This email is meant to invite applications for the position of managing editor, which will fill something like the following tasks: acknowledgement of submissions, preparation of submissions for blind review, coordinating with editor-in-chief regarding appropriate referees, tracking submitted papers, and submitting manuscripts to the publisher.


While this is an unpaid position, I'm optimistic that it might be of interest to those who want to: gain experience in the publishing realm, interact with a wide range of the philosophical profession, and develop the associated areas of their CVs. I expect that this position would be most appropriate to a Ph.D. student working in the areas of the journal, but would be willing to consider applications from other demographics, including M.A. students or junior faculty.

To receive consideration, please send a CV and a statement of interest--both in .pdf format--to fritz.allhoff@wmich.edu no later than Friday, October 28. As this is a virtual position, geography of applicants is not important."

Talisse will leave big shoes to fill, but this is also a wonderful opportunity at a terrific journal. I strongly recommend interested readers to contact Fritz and indicate your interest in the position asap.

Good luck in your new editorial role, Thom. Hope your search for a Managing Editor has turned up some good candidates.

To clarify: the editor has been Robert Talisse (and not me - I still edit the Journal of Moral Philosophy). Hope some great candidates come forward for the important role.
