Research Square is committed to helping researchers across the globe succeed by helping them communicate their work so they can get back to making discoveries.
We currently have full-time opportunities for highly motivated individuals with experience in copy editing to join our growing team. We are especially interested in candidates with experience or a background in life sciences, clinical medicine, or biomedical sciences.
Our Copy Editors provide consistent, high-quality editing for a variety of academic journals, primarily in biology and medicine. They use specific style guidelines to deliver the cleanest copy possible, and they ensure consistency in academic conventions, including abbreviations, terminology, figure legends, etc. The copyediting position is challenging because it entails delivering consistent, detailed edits (several manuscripts per day); it requires a combination of strong editing and time management skills as well as familiarity with scientific literature.
Many team members at Research Square are remote employees. Whether remote or local to the Triangle, team members regularly participate in videoconference meetings with their manager and teams and enjoy strong bonds with their colleagues. Because the work is results oriented and communication is often asynchronous, team members need to be tech savvy with strong written communication skills.
