Jobs at BioMed Central
BioMed Central is the leading open access publisher of STM (Science, Technology and Medicine) research. We believe research should be free to access for anyone and, since the company was founded in 2000, have successfully pioneered the open access publishing model and brought open access to the mainstream.
BioMed Central is a global organisation, with offices in London, Sao Paulo, Beijing, Shanghai, Seoul, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Heidelberg and New York. We currently have about 240 employees across a range of functions including editorial, production, IT, customer service, marketing and business development. We are a vibrant and innovative company, who operate in a fast-paced and high-energy environment; hiring talented people who are passionate about science, technology, medicine and open access.
In additional to permanent and fixed term positions across the company, paid internships exist at BioMed Central to provide practical work experience for recent graduates seeking a career in academic publishing. All vacancies will be advertised on this page, so please check back regularly.
BioMed Central is committed to helping communities in the developing world. To support researchers, we operate a waiver scheme that enables authors to publish their research open access without incurring the usual article processing charge. The company is also striving to improve the facilities available to science and medical researchers, busy building relationships with charities, such as Oxfam and Médecins Sans Frontières, as well as grouping academics together through library conferences and using road trips to both inform and train librarians and researchers.
