Call for Deputy Statistics & Methodology Editors

Addiction is looking to add to its pool of Statistics & Methodology Editors (SMEs) in reviewing submitted research reports.

A background in addiction studies or familiarity with the particular features of addiction work would be a benefit, although may not be essential for a person with a strong empirical background in the medical or social sciences.  Preference is likely to be given to those with a formal qualification in statistics or epidemiology.

A good understanding of contemporary regression models for the analysis of epidemiological studies, randomized controlled trials, complex survey designs, and at least some appreciation of Bayesian approaches is important.  The SME would be required to support the Senior Editor by reviewing the statistical and methodological aspects of about 1-2 articles per month, possibly increasing to 3-4 per month during periods of high throughput.  The workload can be flexible, depending on the other commitments of the SME.  This will be a paid position in accordance with the journal's working arrangements for Senior Editors. 

To apply, send your CV together with a covering letter outlining why you are suitable for the role to Editor-in-Chief John Marsden c/o  The closing date for applications is 23 June 2023.
