Those interested in applying for the position should submit a current curriculum vitae and a brief statement highlighting any previous editorial experience and ongoing scholarly interest in the field of education.
The Book Reviews Editor (English) will be responsible for working with publishers to secure books to review; matching and distributing those books to reviewers; and editing and readying the final work for publication as a highlighted section of the CJE.
