Department: Mouton de Gruyter
Job Location: Berlin, Germany
Web Address: http://www.degruyter.com
Job Rank: Editorial Director
Specialty Areas: General Linguistics
This full time position is located in the Berlin headquarters, and starting
at the earliest possible date. Responsibilities include the strategic
planning and implementation of the Mouton program in coordination with the
Managing Director and Vice President Publishing of the unit, while
overseeing a team of eight highly motivated individuals within the
editorial office. Coordination with the editorial office of the US will be
essential, as the Editorial Director will also be the contact person for
international marketing and distribution strategies in Europe and the USA.
One of the main qualifications for the position is a thorough insight and
understanding of all subject areas covered by Mouton. The ideal candidate
will add to the imprint with knowledge of adjacent scientific areas, such
as psychology, cognitive science, and neuroscience, and will have developed
book and journal programs at an academic publishing house, or have acquired
similar qualifications working at a research institute. Based on his/her
experience, the applicant will bring his/her own professional ties with
scientific societies and individuals to Mouton, and will deepen his/her
knowledge by traveling to international conferences as well as being in
contact with Mouton affiliated editors and authors.
In addition, applicants should have a distinct knowledge of project
management, experience creating and implementing budgets, be comfortable in
complex work contexts, and bring the team spirit and skills needed to lead
an editorial team.
The language for negotiation and correspondence is English; the working
language is German. The position is not tied to collective labor
agreements and offers fixed and variable German social benefits to be
discussed with the appropriate candidate.
The previous holder of the position will continue to oversee the imprint in
her position as member of the Board of Directors as well as Vice President
Publishing. We are looking forward to a detailed application of your work
history, salary requirements, and general qualifications per mail or email.
