Editor of Community Dental Health

Professor Mike Lennon has announced his intention to stand down as editor of Community Dental Health during 2016.  We are seeking to appoint his successor in time to ensure a smooth hand over between the two editors.

Community Dental Health is the journal of the British Association for the Study of Community Dental Health (BASCD) and the European Association of Dental Public Health (EADPH).  The two organisations have formed a search committee to make recommendation to their respective Councils who will formally approve and appoint the next editor.

The successful applicant will work closely with the Journal’s publishers and be supported by an editorial assistant, an editorial board and a list of reviewers.  The position is remunerated.  The position is fixed term for four years in the first instance with the possibility of a further term which would be agreed by the governing bodies. 

Applications are invited from those who have editorial experience, a detailed knowledge of the relevant literature and are comfortable in using appropriate software.  The search committee wishes to identify as large a pool of names as is possible and so also seeks nominations of names of people that should be considered. 

Further details about the post, including a job description can be found on the websites of BASCD and of EADPH at:

Applicants should send a letter of application outlining their interest in the role, how they fulfil the person specification and a brief curriculum vitae to Elizabeth Treasure, Vice Chancellor’s Office, Main Building, Cardiff University, Park Place, Cardiff CF10 3AT.

Nominations of people who considered suitable may be submitted in strictest confidence to the same address. 

Closing date for the receipt of applications: 31 October 2015
