HFES Seeks Editor for Ergonomics Journal

The Human Factors and Ergonomics Society is seeking candidates for editor of its well-regarded Human Factors journal because the current editor's term will expire at the end of 2008. HFES said it is taking applications until April 30 for the 2009-2012 term, with the possibility of two additional two-year terms.

A candidate information page at www.hfes.org offers instructions. The society, which is based in Santa Monica, Calif., wants a current CV, letter of interest, responses to the questions posted on the Web site, and two professional or personal recommendation letters to be sent to Communications Director Lois Smith (phone 310-394-1811).

Naturally, it would be a good idea to have a familiarity with the journal before seeking the job. One of the questions asks the prospective applicant about what constitutes acceptable and unacceptable material and where boundaries "need to change from current practice, if at all," while another asks how the individual would phrase a rejection letter to "an author who had submitted an unsatisfactory revision that appears to have too many serious flaws to warrant encouraging further revision."

The posting said the HFES Publications Committee will evaluate the applications, then telephone interviews will be scheduled.
