Editor sought for specialist science rag

The "free media job site," Source That Job, breaks the news that New Scientist is looking for a new editor.

The ad says that "The successful candidate will have a degree in science, a good track record in journalism, management experience, a deep understanding of science and the charisma to inspire others."

The vacancy comes hot on the heels of the news that Reed, which owns the magazine, wants to get shot of it, along with a raft of other stuff that people actually read for pleasure.
