Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology Editorial Fellowship Program

Applications Due: September 30, 2022 | Submit Online Now

The National Academy of Neuropsychology’s official journal, Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology, announces an opening for three Editorial Fellow positions, beginning January 1, 2023. The Editorial Fellowship program is specifically geared to promote and support participation by early career faculty from historically excluded, equity-deserving groups, to prepare them for editorial leadership.

About the Journal

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology publishes original contributions dealing with psychological aspects of the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders arising out of dysfunction of the central nervous system. The journal publishes articles that increase understanding of neuropsychological functions in both healthy and disordered states and across the lifespan as well as manuscripts involving the established principles of the profession of neuropsychology including: (a) delivery and evaluation of services, (b) ethical and legal issues, and (c) approaches to education and training.

The journal also encourages articles that adopt interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approaches that reflect the multiple levels of analysis needed to understand brain-behavior relationships. 

Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology seeks to communicate the best research and ideas in the field from throughout the world.

About the Fellowship

The positions are open to qualified candidates who hold the rank of Assistant Professor (or equivalent) and are no more than 10 years postdoctoral. The positions will last one year. Qualified candidates should have experience conducting peer reviews, and expertise in topics of cultural and ethnic diversity is desirable. We also look for evidence of a broad perspective, good judgment, exceptional communication skills, and management skills appropriate to an Editor, including a commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The Fellows will each work with one of the journal editors to develop their editorial skills. Each Fellow will manage approximately one manuscript every month. This process will include identifying reviewers, making an editorial decision based on reviews, and shepherding the manuscript through to publication if accepted, all with mentorship from the Editor or Associate Editor. The successful candidate will also be expected to participate in monthly meetings with their mentor to ensure goals are met. Most of these meetings will be video teleconferences, although in-person meetings at scientific conferences are also possible. Editorial Fellows will receive a stipend of $1,000/year. Upon successful completion of the fellowship, Editorial Fellows will become members of the journal’s editorial board.

The National Academy of Neuropsychology strives for diverse and inclusive representation within the field of neuropsychology, and in key leadership roles within the field, including its board of directors, committees, journal editors, and journal editorial board. This mission is a core part of the program’s commitment to creating and maintaining a broadly inclusive environment that encourages participation of women and LGBTQ+ individuals, people of color, scholars with disabilities, psychologists at various career stages, and individuals of other groups who have been traditionally underrepresented and historically excluded. 

To encourage equity, diversity, and inclusiveness in the Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology Editorial Fellowship program, we will partner with a variety of representative organizations to develop the program: the Asian Neuropsychological Association, Hispanic Neuropsychological Society, Society for Black Neuropsychology, and Queer Neuropsychological Society. Representatives from those organizations may assist in promoting the program and in the selection of the Editorial Fellows.

All applications should include the following: 1) an interest statement, 2) a curriculum vitae and 3) two letters of recommendation that speak to potential for leadership and dedication to the editorial process. 

Application materials should be submitted online by September 30, 2022. Applications will be reviewed by the journal editors, NAN’s Culture and Diversity and Publications Committees, and interested representatives of the partnering organizations. Final decisions will be made by the Editor-in-Chief and the NAN committee chairs. The top candidates will be notified of their selection by December 1, 2022. Editorial fellows will be (or become) members of the National Academy of Neuropsychology. Address any questions about the fellowship to the journal’s editor-in-chief, Dr. Gregory P. Lee.
