Job description

GeoEditing is seeking freelance English language editors to edit manuscripts in all Earth sciences subjects.

The work involves editing the English language in scientific manuscripts written by non-native English speakers. You will need to correct spelling and grammar, and to edit the content to improve the style and clarity to meet the standards expected by international journals. However, it is important not to alter the scientific content, and you are not acting as a reviewer.

The workload will vary from month to month, and will depend on your availability, and on how closely your area of expertise matches that of the work sent to us by our clients. Most manuscripts are related to the Earth and environmental sciences.

Essential requirements for this role are:

  • Native English speaker.
  • A PhD in a physical science.
  • Experience of publishing papers in peer-reviewed journals.

All our work is carried out online, so you can be based anywhere, provided you have access to a good internet connection. This is a great way to improve your science general knowledge.

How to apply

If you meet the essential requirements and would like to join our team of freelance editors, please email your CV and a full list of publications to Applications will be reviewed as we receive them and positions may be filled before the application deadline.
