NEUROSURGERY® Publications Resident Fellowship


Are you a resident interested in scholarly publishing? NEUROSURGERY® Publications invites you to apply for the new 2018 NEUROSURGERY® Publications Resident Fellowship.

The fellowship provides the opportunity to serve on the Editorial Boards of Neurosurgery and Operative Neurosurgery - the fastest growing journals in the field - and will immerse residents in the strategies and mechanics of scholarly publishing. During the course of the one-year fellowship, the fellow will focus on the editorial process, creative projects, and new initiatives, and will act as an ex officio liaison between the publications office and neurosurgery residents and fellows.

Mentored by a vibrant editorial office staff including Editor-in-Chief Nelson M. Oyesiku, MD, PhD, and Managing Editor Brandon J. Fiedor, this unpaid position requires a commitment of approximately ten hours per week, from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019.

The fellow also has the opportunity to attend the 2018 CNS Annual Meeting, October 6–10, 2018, in Houston, and participate in the Editorial Board Reception and the Publications Committee meeting. Support to cover airfare and two nights of hotel accommodations at the Annual Meeting will be provided.

The position is open to U.S. neurosurgery residents PGY-5 or beyond, ideally on elective (non-core) or research rotations. The NEUROSURGERY® Publications editorial office is located on the campus of Emory University, however, the position may be conducted virtually.

All applications materials, including the application form, CV, letter of recommendation, and letter of support of time commitment from the resident’s director/chair, are due by 11:59 pm CT, February 5, 2018.
