The Publications Committee of the Biophysical Society is calling for nominations for the position of Editor-in-Chief of the Society’s flagship publication, Biophysical Journal (BJ). BJ is the leading international journal for original research articles, letters, and mini-reviews in molecular, cellular, and systems biophysics.
This appointment will begin July 1, 2012, and last for one five-year term. The Editor-in-Chief should have a broad understanding of biophysics.
