If you have a PhD in psychology & are interested in a career in scientific editing, Nature Reviews Psychology will launch in 2022...but they're recruiting talented psychologists right now!

I wrote a short blog post about editorial careers a few years ago, but Reviews journals are a different beast to journals that publish original research – Reviews editors don't evaluate the contribution of any single piece of research, but rather take a broad, birds-eye view of the field to identify topics that are ripe for review, or high-level ideas that could push the field forward. Reviews editors actively commission the majority of content, and work closely with authors to develop & edit the manuscript (you can watch a snazzy video about Nature Reviews here).

The job ad is here, and the deadline to apply is November 6th.
