How to Apply - Please Read: Our Process is Different

We've partnered with SciBase in recruiting for this position. If you're not familiar, SciBase is a platform for crowdsourced reviews of scientific publications. Scientists post feedback about their attempts at reproducing existing experiments in the literature and other scientists can read and rate those reviews.

During the application process, you will be asked to sign up (for free) with SciBase and to write reviews of at a few papers that you have tried to replicate, along with any further comments, suggestions, and questions. While our site allows you to submit these reviews under your name or anonymously, you must post (or have posted) at least the following for your application to be considered for the job:

  1. One "Author Commentary" (i.e. additional comments on your own paper)
  2. One review of a paper you tried to reproduce.
  3. Three ratings of reviews that other users have submitted to the site.

If you have not published a paper, then submit two reviews of other people's papers.

These reviews and ratings will be reviewed by the SciBase team and then by us to help us decide on the appropriate person. In the future, you will also be able to use your SciBase account to quickly apply to other positions of ours and other employers.
