This seminar is jointly organised by Umeå Postdoc Society and UPSC's "Outside of Academia" Seminar Series.
Listen to Sonhita Chakraborty, a former editor at Elsevier and Cell Press.
Have you ever wondered about what happens after you hit submit and send your paper to a journal? Do you know what a scientific editor does? Do you like to think and read about scientific concepts over a piping hot cup of coffee?
Then a career in scientific editing might be just the thing for you! Listen to Umeå Plant Science Centre postdoc Sonhita Chakraborty.
After completing her PhD in plant molecular biology from the University of Toronto, Sonhita worked as an editor for an editing company, the academic publishing company Elsevier and its associated partner Cell Press.
Besides giving you a basic rundown of academic publishing and where it is heading, Sonhita will tell you about her journey, how she got into editorial work, what the day-to-day of an editor looks like and help you decide if it’s a career option for you.
