Deadline: 24 May 2023

The Transformation in Higher Education Journal is seeking a highly motivated individual to serve an initial five-year term as the Associate Editor of its peer-reviewed scholarly journal to help support the operation and future development of the journal.

About the journal

Transformation in Higher Education is an international, transdisciplinary journal. To enhance its multidisciplinary nature, editors must come from different disciplines. At present, the editor-in-chief is from the Education discipline, and therefore the journal requires associate editors from other disciplines. This will enable the journal to adequately develop the journal in terms of its focus and scope.

The journal seeks original contributions that reflect upon and theorise transformation in higher education in all its different nuances. It aims to disseminate high impact, evidence-based research across disciplines in higher education that could ultimately support high level learning, teaching, and research. Therefore, transdisciplinary engagements that address contemporary issues in higher education contexts will receive preference.

Conceptual-philosophical and empirical works addressing matters that could lead to the intellectual advancement in higher education as discipline and context are welcomed. This journal and its publications are of interest to academics and a wide range of professionals associated with higher education institutions, both nationally and internationally.

The appointment will be for five years with the potential of renewal for a further period as per the Editorial Policy.

How to apply

Please include the following in your application:

  • A detailed CV that provides evidence of your standing as a researcher within higher education and transformation research as well as evidence of your publishing record
  • A written submission outlining why you feel you are suited to the role of an associate editor (maximum one page/one side of A4).
  • A cover letter providing your full contact details and those of two referees who can comment on your suitability for this post.
