350 Antarctic Environments Portal Vacancy

We are seeking to appoint a new Antarctic Environments Portal Editor!

The Antarctic Environments Portal has been developed to support evidence-based management of Antarctica, by placing the best available science knowledge at the fingertips of Antarctic decision makers.

The Portal is an online resource of information on Antarctic environments that supports the work of the Antarctic Treaty System – in particular the Committee for Environmental Protection (CEP). Information in the Portal is unbiased, a-political and presented in a synthesised, or “policy-ready” form.

The Editor has lead responsibility for generating material for the Portal (mainly by commissioning from external authors) as well as managing the editing and review process.

The position is remote and the Editor can be located anywhere globally. The working hours are 1-2 days/week on a contractor basis (18 months with possibility of extension). The application closing date is 7th September 2021.
