Appointment Editor in Chief Tertiary Education & Management (TEAM)

EAIR – The European Higher Education Society is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified member of the association to the post of Editor in Chief to Tertiary Education & Management (TEAM) from September 1st 2020.

EAIR is committed to support and stimulate the links between research, policy and practice, and regards Tertiary  Education & Management as an important dimension to the provision it makes for members and increasingly for the wider higher education community. We are currently looking for an editor who can further advance and realize the ambition of EAIR.

The current Editor, Professor Malcolm Tight, will have completed the maximum of two terms as Editor. We start the process of seeking a suitable replacement in good time for a seamless transfer of responsibilities. We are open to consider applications of (small) teams that collectively take care of the Editors roles. The Editor is – when appointed – an ex-officio member of the EAIR Executive Committee, and thus needs to be a member of EAIR during the appointment period. The editor reports directly to that committee. The editor is supported on a day to day basis by administrative staff employed by the publisher.

The successful candidate will be appointed for an initial period of 4 years, with an option to renew the appointment for a further four years. EAIR will provide an honorarium. This is a fixed annual fee inclusive of all out of pocket expenses. The Editor’s Forum fee will be waived.

Those wishing to seek information about the appointment are encouraged to contact Malcolm Tight (, Bjørn Stensaker ( or Jeroen Huisman ( who will be able to provide, in confidence, answers to those questions for which you may need further clarification before applying.

No formal application forms are necessary for this appointment; instead a letter of intent should be sent, by email, to Gerlof Groenewoud at EAIR, Professor Jeroen Huisman (please use and use “Editor TEAM” as subject). This letter of intent should be brief (at most 2 sides of A4) but should contain a plan or a number of ideas for further developing TEAM sufficient enough to provide the Search Committee with information to assess the applicant’s suitability for the post of Editor. The letter of intent should be submitted by May 1st 2019.
