Call for Applications

for Deputy Editor-in-Chief of A Different View

The academic blog of the International Association for Political Science Students (IAPSS)

The International Association for Political Science Students is hereby launching a Call for Applications for the position of Deputy Editor-in-Chief of its academic blog A Different View (ADV).

The Deputy Editor-in-Chief is, in cooperation with the Editor-in-Chief, responsible for running the academic blog. The blog operates within the IAPSS Academic Department.

ADV is the popular-scientific blog of IAPSS. As one of the largest student-run blogs, ADV publishes articles dealing with all facets of political theory, foreign policy and international relations, among others. While ADV provides analytical and up-to-date commentary of political issues around the world as well as recent developments in the field of political science, it is not just limited to academia but extends to real-world developments and crises. IAPSS envisions ADV as a place for discussions and free flow of ideas, and an avenue where readers can gain a better understanding of cross-cultural affairs and how politics deeply affects the interactions between and among states as well as individuals.

With a diverse pool of authorship, ADV is an important platform for political science enthusiasts, one which enables and facilitates the sharing of opinions on different issues. ADV is a very much formidable platform for exchanging ideas and perspectives, improving academic writing skills and making convincing points of view about various subjects of utmost importance.

A suitable candidate for the position of Deputy Editor-in-Chief is required to:

  • be a student enrolled in a Master’s or PhD programme in one of the fields of political science, international relations, public policy or a related discipline, or an early stage academic/professional in one of these fields (or related fields) with a graduate degree
  • have experience with writing (popular) scientific blogs/short articles

Furthermore, the position demands:

  • dedication to the job;
  • an excellent command of the English language;
  • a professional level of communication;
  • capacity to meet deadlines.

Current or past membership in the ADV Authorial Board is not a requirement.

The position is as all other positions within IAPSS unpaid and extends for the duration of two years, i.e. until December 2019. The average workload is seven (7) hours per week.

In addition, occupying the position implies that you are a member of IAPSS at the moment of your installment and during your whole term as Deputy Editor-in-Chief. Therefore, if you are not already a member you will be required to apply for membership in case of acceptance.

If you would like to apply, please, send us your CV (max. 2 pages) alongside a 1-page letter of motivation to adifferentview@iapss.org and academic@iapss.org until 10 December 2017 (23:59 CET).

Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of further questions or inquiries.

Kind regards
