Career Opportunities If you are looking for new opportunities within the scientific publishing industry, then Nature Publishing Group is looking for you. Nature, our flagship journal, was founded in 1869, and has published many of the most important scientific advances of the last 130 years. The launch of Nature Genetics in 1992 marked a new phase in the history of the company, and the Nature titles now include, in addition to Nature itself, seven research journals and six review journals. In 1999, the Nature titles were joined by imprints within the Macmillan Group to form the Nature Publishing Group (NPG).
The company continues to grow, yet even as the scientific publishing industry is transformed by new technologies, we remain committed to Nature’s original values, as reflected in its mission statement: First, to serve scientists through prompt publication of significant advances in any branch of science, and to provide a forum for the reporting and discussion of news and issues concerning science. Second, to ensure that the results of science are rapidly disseminated to the public throughout the world, in a fashion that conveys their significance for knowledge, culture and daily life.
As an employer, we offer competitive compensation and benefits and the satisfaction of working in a culture where talent and achievements are recognized and rewarded.
