I started a year ago as senior consultant in Medical Genetics at the Department of Medical Genetics in Bergen after approx. 10 years as a Senior Consultant at the Department of Genomic Medicine in Manchester. My specific field of interest is genomic syndromology and I have also worked previously in similar positions at the major pediatric hospitals of Rome, Italy and Athens, Greece.
I was just appointed Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Dysmorphology, a task I gladly take on since dysmorphology is the part of genetics that is closest to my heart. The journal was started in the early 90s by i.a. Michael Baraitser and I am now taking over as editor-in-chief from Dame Dian Donnai, see https://journals.lww.com/clindysmorphol/pages/default.aspx
The editor can appoint an Editorial Assistant who gets some money for the job from the journal. I, and others with me, thought this might be an educational side-job for someone who is neat and structured in their work, and who is interested in learning more about how a clinical-genetic journal works. The job is administrative, but you have access to all the manuscripts and can read what you want. The tasks are greatly facilitated by using Editorial Manager, a user-friendly computer program, and the workload is estimated at 2-3 hours per week.
The journal comes out with four issues a year, and the job is paid ($ 1,750 per calendar year).
