VACANCY – SOCIAL MEDIA EDITOR, EJHP
European Journal of Hospital Pharmacy (EJHP), published by BMJ on behalf of the European
Association of Hospital Pharmacists (EAHP), has an exciting vacancy for an enthusiastic Social Media
Editor to drive the journal’s web presence worldwide.
EJHP is a peer reviewed journal that aims to strengthen the profile and professional status of
hospital pharmacists. EJHP is committed to being the leading journal on all aspects of hospital
pharmacy, thereby advancing the science, practice and profession of hospital pharmacy. More
information can be found at ejhp.bmj.com.
EJHP already has a strong readership and offers online features such as podcasts, Facebook and
Twitter. The journal is searching for someone to support the editorial team in improving the
journal’s visibility and reach via these and other social media, by promoting the journal’s content as
well as helping its core readership to stay up to date with news and developments in the field.
Candidates should be educated to postgraduate level with knowledge of the journal’s subject area.
Some experience of communication and/or digital content management systems such as Twitter,
Facebook and WordPress would be preferred, but the main criteria for the successful applicant will
be enthusiasm for the subject area, creativity, and an interest in using new technologies to
disseminate scientific research. The role would be ideally suited to a practising hospital pharmacist
and/or pharmacy researcher, and they may be based anywhere in the world.
The Social Media Editor will report directly to the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, and will be expected to
participate in the journal’s annual editorial meetings when possible (usually held in person at the
EAHP annual conference). This is an unpaid position, but training and support will be provided by
BMJ’s digital communications team.
To apply, please send your CV and covering letter to Lindsey Fountain, Associate Publisher at BMJ, at
Deadline: Friday 14th July
