As is the case for the Co-Editors of JMEWS, the Review Editor(s) position is unpaid. Review Editor(s) interface with a paid JMEWS Managing Editor and the DUP Journals office, whose staff will be responsible for copy-editing and production. Scholars outside of the U.S. are encouraged and welcome to apply. The ideal candidate(s): · have completed a Ph.D. dissertation in any discipline or interdiscipline focused on part or parts of the Middle East/North Africa; · have a feminist, women’s studies, gender studies, or queer scholarly orientation in their research and teaching; · have published scholarly articles and/or book(s) in the above subfields; · are very interested, have initiative, and propose creative ideas for this important journal section; · are organized, responsible, excellent communicators in writing, collegial, and conscientious about deadlines; Interested Candidates are invited to electronically submit a 1-2 page letter of interest/proposal, a curriculum vita, and the e-mail and telephone contact information of two references by 30 March 2014.
