The editorial leadership team of Personality and Social Psychology Review is accepting submissions for an Editorial Fellowship position for psychologists from historically underrepresented groups, with the backing of the SPSP Board of Directors.
Their emphasis is on academics from Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America for this request, as well as Indigenous academics from any nation. The Fellow will work as an Associate Editor for a year, starting on January 1, 2023, on a creative, supportive, and collaborative editorial team.
This Pilot Editorial Fellowship Program 2022 aims to provide psychologists from groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in these positions with a supporting road to editorial leadership in support of SPSP‘s fundamental principles of innovation, rigor, diversity, and inclusivity. The fellowship’s objective is to find and assist a person who:
- is interested in editorial leadership
- would not ordinarily enter it at this point in their career, and
- may not have easy access to the professional support networks that facilitate and support editorial experience and mentorship from centrally located scholars in the field.
- A $2,500 USD honorarium stipend is provided for the role.
- The fellowship is open to candidates from historically excluded groups who have completed their PhD Candidates may hold an academic or non-academic position.
- Especially interested in candidates who are from and/or working in Africa, the Middle East, or Latin America, as well as Indigenous scholars in any country.
- It is also useful to bring an interdisciplinary scholarly perspective (either within different subfields of psychology or across disciplines), an investment in the future of the fields of personality and/or social psychology (broadly defined), and an interest in collaborating with the current editorial team on the development of manuscripts advancing theory.
