Marburg Journal of Religion – Managing Editor Required

Marburg Journal of Religion was launched in 1996, being the first internet journal for the study of religions. It is an open source, peer-reviewed journal and carries a wide range of relevant articles and reviews by contributors from all over the world. It is multi-lingual. The editors are based at the University of Marburg in Germany and for many years most of the editorial work has been carried out by the founding editor, Michael Pye. However, since he is now using retirement for the urgent conclusion of various research projects, it is no longer practical for him to carry out this function efficiently.

We are therefore looking for a Managing Editor with expertise in the study of religions and relevant linguistic skills. The current policies of the journal will continue, and guidance and assistance will be given by the wider editorial group including the General Editor. The journal will remain at its current location and technical support is provided in the Department of the Study of Religions at Marburg. It is not necessary for the Managing Editor to have a position in Marburg; however a location in Europe is preferred, since this would probably facilitate occasional meetings.

The position is unfortunately not remunerated. It is simply an opportunity to provide a valuable service to the scholarly community in the Study of religions (Religionswissenschaft).

Please address expressions of interest jointly to the undersigned:
Prof. Dr. Edith Franke <efranke@staff.uni-marburg.de>
Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Michael Pye <pye@staff.uni-marburg.de>
