Calling doctoral students! Opening @ IJDSJ

Expression of Interest: becoming a sub-editor of the IJDSJ Reviews Section

Would you like to apply to become a sub-editor of the IJDSJ Reviews Section? The successful applicant will work with Dr Simon T.M. Ng to develop this aspect of the journal.

The role will be for 2 years, after which the sub-editor will be invited to join the Editorial Board and the position will be re-advertised.

There will be three sub-editors of the Reviews section. Up to two positions will be ring-fenced for applicants from the University of Leeds (UK), where the Editor-in-Chief (Professor Angharad Beckett) is based.

The remaining position is open to any doctoral student, from any University, globally.


  • Please only apply if you are a doctoral student (it does not matter what stage of your doctoral studies, you will not be required to step down if you pass your viva during your time as a sub-editor);
  • Please only apply if you can give 1-2 hrs/week (this is maximum, it will often be less) to this role.

This is a voluntary position. There is no salary, or payment of any kind attached to this position.

We especially welcome applications from disabled people/persons with disabilities, women and members of the LGBTQI+ community, members of ethnically minoritised communities and First Nations peoples.

Applications will be considered by at least three members of the IJDSJ Editorial Collective. Their decision will be final. There will be no interviews – the decision will be made on the basis of the information contained within this form. The successful and unsuccessful applicant/s will be informed by email of the outcome.

Please complete this form carefully and fully:

Thank you in advance for your application!
