News editor (volunteer)
Significance website – an exciting opportunity for Statisticians – Volunteer News Editors needed
Significance is now an official magazine of the American Statistical Association as well as of the Royal Statistical Society and our first joint issue was published in September 2010. Accompanying this collaboration an exciting new magazine website was launched on World Statistics Day (20.10.2010). The site features daily posts from a team of volunteer News Editors bringing forward new topics of the kind that might appear in Significance, and will inform statisticians and others of developments in a wide range of different specialist fields within statistics.
Subject areas covered include: education, environment, nature and climate change, health and medicine, bioinformatics and genomics, history of science and statistics, finance and the economy, food and drink, official statistics, science and technology, sports, and social sciences. If there are other areas in which you feel you would like to contribute, please let us know.
We are looking for volunteers to serve as News Editors to write and post these articles for the project. The roles would be ideal for, among others, postgraduate students or those beginning their post-academic careers. They offer the chance to network with others within and outside your own speciality; to gain experience in communicating statistics both to specialists and to a general audience; and to raise your own profile within the statistical community.
Why become a News Editor?
As a News Editor you will be asked to post one brief article every two weeks. (You are welcome of course to post more.)
