Could you be the next Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of Geophysical Journal International (GJI)? If you are highly motivated, with an expertise in solid-Earth geophysics, an interest in academic journal publishing and a vision for the future of GJI, this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

The appointment will be for a five-year term and the successful candidate will have an opportunity to shadow the existing EiC, Prof. Joerg Renner, before taking up the reins on 1 March 2024.

This is an exciting time in the journal’s history. Originating in 1922 as a supplement to its sister publication, Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, GJI has been published as a journal in its own right since 1959. At the time of writing, it is in the process of completing the move to open access publication, ensuring that researchers around the world are able to read the high-impact articles without the necessity of a subscription.

As well as the regular monthly issues, the journal has recently run special issues on the Hunga Volcano and the East Anatolia Fault. A collection of 100 influential articles from the past 100 years is also in the process of being collated. Current issues are featured on our website,

The closing date for applications is Friday 27th October, with interviews to be held in November 2023. More information can be found here , including a full role description.
