Medical Editor


This is a Contract position in Peapack, NJ posted July 18, 2021.

Are you a science geek who spots errors a mile off—a misplaced decimal, a wrong reference, DNA masquerading as RNA? Are you equal parts left and right brain, with an affection for medical technology as much as the written word? Does working with a respected team of editorial leaders excite you? We are looking for dedicated professionals who want to take part in ensuring our award-winning promotional marketing materials crafted for top pharma clients are production ready.

Our editors comprise a team with a breadth of experience and expertise: Editorial Assistants, Associate Medical Editors, and Medical Editors. Editors across all levels are responsible for a range of editorial services, including medical editing, proofreading, and fact checking of pharmaceutical marketing materials, internal and external presentations, and corporate communications. This role works with cross-functional teams under deadline to ensure client projects are delivered successfully. As a member of our Editorial team, you’ll do much more than eliminate the spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors; we are interested in editors who ultimately help craft clear and precise scientific material.

About You

  • “Error-free” is your mantra; you’ve always enjoyed copy editing and proofreading, from menus to the news page to medical marketing materials.
  • You follow the rules—leaning on your knowledge of AMA style, FDA guidelines, client preferences, and good writing.
  • With an insatiable interest in health and medicine, you enjoy continually learning and understanding brands and therapeutic areas.
  • You are a keen and inquisitive fact checker who loves getting into the nitty gritty to make sure every bit is accurate.
  • You love collaborating with a team of like-minded professionals, driven to meet deadlines, and committed to quality contributions crucial to the successful execution of print and digital projects for our clients.
  • You are passionate about your work and adhere to the 3 c’s: clear, concise, correct.
  • You are flexible, able to handle multiple projects at once, and do your best work in an energizing environment

What You Can Expect Day-to-Day (Essential Duties)

Medical Editors partner in the content review process, reviewing and editing content for correct spelling, grammar, and sentence structure, fulfillment of creative brief, adherence to AMA and client style, and appropriate and accurate referencing. You’ll be involved at all stages of content development, initiating and maintaining editorial integrity from outline to printer’s proof. Editors fact check materials and align with the writers on annotating and referencing. You will represent Editorial at internal start-up and status meetings, and work with the extended team to facilitate project completion. You will ensure all pieces are aligned with each client’s MLR submission process and support the MLR process.
