Are you a resident interested in scholarly publishing? NEUROSURGERY® Publications invites you to consider the 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, FACS, and Managing Editor Brandon J. Fiedor, this unpaid position requires a commitment of approximately ten hours per week. The fellowship runs from July 1 to June 30 each cycle.
The fellow also has the opportunity to attend the CNS Annual Meeting and participate in the Editorial Board Reception. 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.
Those interested in this position should submit the following via the application portal: demographics, anticipated graduation date, personal statement, CV, a letter of recommendation, and a letter of support of time commitment from resident director/chair.
