Call for Expressions of Interest Nutgrower Journal Editor The Australian Nutgrower Journal is a key R&D extension and communication tool of the Australian tree nut industries. It is funded through matched R&D funding from Horticulture Australia Ltd via voluntary contribution from ANIC. The Nutgrower Journal is currently published quarterly and distributed to approximately 900 Australian and international subscribers in print and available electronically via the ANIC website. Due to the pending retirement of our long-time editor, ANIC is now calling for Expressions of Interest to produce the Nutgrower Journal. All aspects of production are required – sourcing and writing articles, editing and proofing industry contributions, managing advertisers, and layout. ANIC is flexible on how these tasks might be performed and welcomes suggestions from interested parties on how they might deliver these necessary services. The successful candidate would be required to commence work in July 2014 for production of the September issue. A full brief can be obtained by contacting Chaseley Ross, ANIC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0409 707 806.
