IDSA is seeking to add several more panelists for Journal Club, the popular IDSA News feature that informs members about important new infectious diseases research.
Each month, Journal Club members search the medical literature for new studies with a significant impact on the clinical practice of infectious diseases. The panel meets by conference call once a month to discuss the selected studies and comes to a consensus on the best three to five. Panelists then write brief reviews of the studies (about 300 words in length). IDSA staff edits the reviews, which are published in IDSA News under the writer’s byline. Consistently, Journal Club is one of the most-read articles in IDSA News.
Successful candidates will have a good eye for clinically relevant research and an ability to communicate its importance clearly and concisely. Good writing skills, the ability to meet deadlines, and participation in conference calls and submission of studies for discussion at least every other month are required. The position currently requires about 3-5 hours a month.
Applicants should submit a CV and a short writing sample by email to Journal Club coordinator John Heys at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Applications are due May 13. New panel members will be chosen by June 3.
