Editorial Assistant wanted, Parrhesia 

The Editorial Board of Parrhesia: A Journal of Critical Philosophy is looking for an Editorial Assistant. This is a voluntary unpaid position. Since 2005, Parrhesia has provided an open-access venue for cutting-edge work in critical philosophy, and the appointment of an Editorial Assistant will allow us to make its publication a more efficient and streamlined process.

The position involves the management of article and review essay proposals, coordination of the peer review process, overseeing of production, and issue proofreading. It will likely involve 3 to 5 hours of work per week, though this will vary depending on the moment in the publishing cycle. The appointment will begin as soon as possible, and will initially be for one year (with the possibility of renewal).

The ideal person is likely an early post-graduate student in philosophy or a cognate discipline, with a particular interest in open-access publishing. Web design skills would be a plus, but are not necessary. This is an unpaid position. Any interested applicants should apply to Dr Jon Roffe jonathan.roffe@unimelb.edu.au, briefly explain who they are and why they are interested in the role, and attach a brief CV.
