Web Designer

We are looking for a Web designer to update and innovate the JMIR websites!

About JMIR:

JMIR Publications is an open access academic publisher based in Toronto,
Canada, and is the leading publisher of peer-reviewed journals in the ehealth
domain. We are the leading open access publisher focussing on technology and
bioengineering in health, and are expanding into other areas. Our mission is
to reinvent research communication through grassroots, researcher-driven
innovation in every aspect of peer-reviewed publishing, making use of
Internet, social media, and mobile technologies, and we are currently
expanding into other science domains.

Recent successful journal launches include JMIR Research Protocols and
interactive Journal of Medical Research (i-JMR). To expand our journal
portfolio we are continuously looking for gaps in the journal market,
societies interested in creating new journals or looking for new publishers,
and visionary and highly regarded scientists, primarily working at the
intersections between technology and medicine, to lead the creation and
development of new journals in emerging disciplines and rapidly expanding
research areas. Building on the JMIR brand, possible new titles could include
JMIR mHealth, JMIR Serious Games, JMIR Bioinformatics, JMIR Biomedical
Engineering, or individual titles without the JMIR branding in the title.
