IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine is soliciting nominations for two new associate editors to begin in January 2016. The associate editors play an important role in maintaining the caliber of the magazine by ensuring the quality of published articles by implementing reviews of technical features according to IEEE guidelines, soliciting interesting and topical material articles for publication in the magazine, guiding the overall direction of the publication and providing feedback from the readership through e-mail conversations, teleconferences, and twice-yearly in-person meetings held in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Robotics and Automation and the IEEE International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems.
Associate editor terms normally consist of a one-year probation period followed by two years of additional service if performance is satisfactory. Applicants should have a strong technical background and excellent English language skills.
Nominations should include a resume (not to exceed three pages), previous experience with publications as a reviewer or in other capacities, and areas of technical expertise. Please submit nominations as a single pdf file to Rachel O. Warnick at firstname.lastname@example.org by 30 September 2015.
