Apply by

03 March 2021

Description

We are seeking experienced and highly motivated freelance medical editors to join the BMJ Knowledge Centre roster. This is an exciting opportunity to work as part of a friendly and talented team, producing evidence-based clinical content for BMJ Best Practice and BMJ Learning, our two popular online products for doctors and other healthcare professionals.

Responsibilities

The role involves planning, commissioning, writing and editing complex medical content for a demanding audience of clinicians, both in the UK and globally. You will liaise with external clinical experts to ensure our content is up to date with the latest evidence and guidelines, as well as compelling and digestible for our target audience. 

Qualifications & Skills

A biomedical degree is essential and clinical experience would be advantageous though is not essential. You might be an established freelance medical editor with proven experience of producing practice-changing, evidence-based content for clinicians. Or you could be a clinician yourself who has some writing or editing experience and a hunger to get involved in a part-time medical publishing role, perhaps alongside your clinical work. You will certainly need strong editorial instincts, meticulous attention to detail and a confident approach, as well as proven ability to work under pressure to tight deadlines.  Other vital skills are the ability to critically appraise evidence developments and to extract the key take-home messages from complex medical literature.

If you’re interested, please submit your CV and covering letter to Tashan Chong-Kan at tchongkan@bmj.com
