Nuclear Technology searches for a new technical editor
At the recent ANS Annual Meeting, Andrew Klein, the current editor of ANS’s journal Nuclear Technology, announced his retirement at the end of his term in June 2023. ANS is looking for qualified members who are interested in becoming the next technical editor of the journal. The selected person will be appointed “editor-designate” and will work with Dr. Klein for a period of time before taking over the full editor’s role.
Klein, professor emeritus at Oregon State University and past ANS president, took over the duties of technical editor in 2015, a few years before his term as ANS president. During his tenure as editor, Dr. Klein has raised NT ’s reputation for technical excellence and arranged a schedule of twelve issues annually covering the most important topics in nuclear technology.
Southern Nuclear operates six nuclear facilities at the highest levels of safety and reliability, creating carbon-free electricity for millions of homes and businesses. It’s also the licensee of two nuclear units under construction at Plant Vogtle, which will be the first new units built in the U.S. in 30 years.
