After PhD and/or postdoc, one usually have three directions to go to. One leads to a tenure track position, other industry related to the field or third where one changes the field completely. However, recently, I came across other jobs that require PhDs, and specific fields but is not typical industrial position.
Scientific editor seems to be one such position. I have seen openings for this position on the Springer, Elsevier, Wiley career sites. How is it as a career path? Is it a rewarding career? By rewarding, I am referring to both intellectually and financially.
Please share your thoughts.
I understand there are ethical concerns considering working with scientific publishing houses. But, as a person who would like to have a decent job just to pay her rent and loans, I am really interested to know about the experience when working at these positions after PhD. The posts that are recommended for this question fails to address this aspect and talk more about the ethical concerns regarding working there.
