AMBE Call for Editor-in-Chief

Springer Nature announces an opportunity for an exceptional candidate to serve as Editor-in-Chief for the journal AMB Express (AMBE).

AMBE is a high-quality Open Access journal that brings together research in the area of Applied and Industrial Microbiology with a particular interest in 'White Biotechnology' and 'Red Biotechnology'. The emphasis is on processes employing microorganisms, eukaryotic cell cultures or enzymes for the biosynthesis, transformation and degradation of compounds. This includes fine and bulk chemicals, polymeric compounds and enzymes or other proteins. Downstream processes are also considered. Integrated processes combining biochemical and chemical processes are also published.
Reports on the use of new procedures or tools in a clinical setting are only considered for publication if microorganisms, viruses, enzymes or other proteins from microorganisms or metabolites of microorganisms are involved as crucial and central part of the new procedure or tool.

The journal Impact Factor (2022) is 3.7, and it received over a million article downloads in 2023.

The current Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Alexander Steinbüchel, will conclude his term of office in December 2024, and we are looking to recruit a successor who would start working in early autumn 2024 with a gradual handover of duties from the current editor and become fully installed as of January 2025.
