About the team

MSP’s data and re­search team main­tains an ex­tens­ive data­base of au­thors and ref­er­ees con­nec­ted to our re­search journ­als and pub­lish­ing ser­vices. We fa­cil­it­ate peer re­view and the pub­lish­ing pro­cess by en­sur­ing that this data is cor­rect and up-to-date, re­dir­ect­ing missed email cor­res­pond­ence, flag­ging and cor­rect­ing du­plic­a­tions, and pro­cessing and re­cord­ing copy­right in­form­a­tion. Our team cul­ture is built on clear com­mu­nic­a­tion of team pri­or­it­ies, re­spons­ib­il­it­ies, and ex­pect­a­tions, so we al­ways know what we're do­ing and why we're do­ing it.

  • You must live and be au­thor­ized to work in the US (any state).
  • You must own a com­puter and be fa­mil­i­ar with op­er­at­ing it.
  • A re­li­able in­ter­net con­nec­tion which will al­low you to at­tend (mostly au­dio) meet­ings re­motely.

  • Self dir­ec­ted and self mo­tiv­ated: You make act­ive use of avail­able know­ledge re­sources, in­clud­ing cowork­ers or man­agers. You ac­know­ledge and fix your mis­takes, and use them as learn­ing op­por­tun­it­ies.
  • Re­spect for di­verse back­grounds: You work ef­fect­ively with staff and cli­ents from around the world, and who may fa­vor a wide vari­ety of com­mu­nic­a­tion styles. You strive to con­trib­ute to a cul­ture of mu­tu­al trust and re­spect in the work­place.

  • An or­gan­iz­a­tion that cares about pro­du­cing high qual­ity work, and provid­ing you the re­sources to do so.
  • Man­age­ment that act­ively seeks out di­verse per­spect­ives, and a chance to shape com­pany cul­ture and policy as we grow.
  • An op­por­tun­ity to work for a mis­sion-driv­en or­gan­iz­a­tion striv­ing to cre­ate equity both in busi­ness mod­el and in­tern­al prac­tices.
