Prof. Max Reuter, University College London, UK.

I am an evol­u­tion­ary genet­i­cist inter­ested in how the genet­ic encod­ing of traits affects and inter­feres with adapt­a­tion. My group stud­ies aspects of this ques­tion using fruit flies (sex-spe­cif­ic evol­u­tion and sexu­al ant­ag­on­ism) and fis­sion yeast (mul­tivari­ate responses to envir­on­ment­al stressors). The work com­bines labor­at­ory exper­i­ment­a­tion, gen­om­ics and bioin­form­at­ics, and some theory.

I have been an ESEB mem­ber and reg­u­lar con­fer­ence attendee since present­ing my Mas­ters thes­is in Arnhem in 1997. I star­ted my term as Edit­or in Chief in the sum­mer of 2021.

Managing Editor

Dr. Nicola Cook, University of St Andrews, UK.

I obtained my PhD at the Uni­ver­sity of Dun­dee in 2011 before mov­ing to the Uni­ver­sity of St Andrews as a Research Fel­low. I have been a mem­ber of ESEB since early in my career.

As Man­aging Edit­or, I think I have one of the best seats in the house! I see first-hand the broad range of research ques­tions being tackled by our evol­u­tion com­munity. It is a pleas­ure to work with our authors, our Edit­or­i­al Board and our pro­duc­tion team to guide manu­scripts through the peer review pro­cess and to pro­mote the fant­ast­ic research pub­lished in our soci­ety journal.

Dr. Luke Holman, Edinburgh Napier University, UK.

I am inter­ested in sexu­al selec­tion, social evol­u­tion, quant­it­at­ive genet­ics, insects, and evol­u­tion­ary theory. 

As Com­mis­sion­ing Edit­or, I have an interest in bring­ing under-served top­ics in evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy to the fore­front and ensur­ing top­ic­al issues are covered by the soci­ety journ­al. I have been a reg­u­lar attendee at ESEB con­fer­ences since 2005 and pub­lished my first two papers in JEB in 2006. I also help run ESE­B’s Pro­gress Meet­ings in Evol­u­tion­ary Bio­logy.

Data Editor

Dr. Sebastian Lequime, University of Groningen, Netherlands.

I am an evol­u­tion­ary vir­o­lo­gist, using gen­om­ics to explore RNA vir­us eco­logy and evol­u­tion in mul­tiple host organ­isms, from recent epi­dem­ics to deep evol­u­tion­ary his­tor­ies of these fas­cin­at­ing parasites. 

As Data Edit­or for JEB, I assist authors in shar­ing their data and code, not only to com­ply with the journal’s require­ments but also to allow rep­lic­a­tion and re-use of pub­lished data. I firmly believe that Open Sci­ence strongly sup­ports the excel­lent work pub­lished in JEB, and dir­ectly bene­fits authors and the whole evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy com­munity, from under­gradu­ate stu­dents to estab­lished researchers.

Handling Editors

Dr. Rebekah Rogers, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, USA.

I am an evol­u­tion­ary genet­i­cist work­ing in the field of genet­ic nov­elty.  How do new genes appear in nat­ur­al pop­u­la­tions?  How do selec­tion and drift act on that vari­ation?  Duplic­a­tions, dele­tions, TEs, and rearrange­ments are a cent­ral focus.  We are inter­ested in how these muta­tions may serve as ‘hope­ful mon­sters’, espe­cially under rap­id or drastic shifts in select­ive pressures. 

As the fields of genet­ics and molecu­lar eco­logy expand into new non-mod­el spe­cies, JEB offers a ven­ue that can sup­port these grow­ing research aven­ues.  As Hand­ling Edit­or, my primary goal is to offer a fair review pro­cess for authors, and a con­struct­ive path for pub­lic­a­tions that advance our under­stand­ing of evolution.

My research focuses on the evol­u­tion of col­lect­ive social beha­viours in anim­als and microor­gan­isms. I work on devel­op­ing Evol­u­tion­ary Game The­ory and its applic­a­tions to study how com­plex biot­ic inter­ac­tions play out in spa­tially het­ero­gen­eous and tem­por­ally vary­ing nat­ur­al and social envir­on­ments. I also use wet-lab exper­i­ments with microor­gan­isms to test mod­el pre­dic­tions, and col­lab­or­ate with gen­om­icists, phys­i­cists, and food sci­ent­ists to answer multi-dis­cip­lin­ary questions.

I have been an ESEB mem­ber and a reg­u­lar attendee at ESEB con­fer­ences since 2016. As a hand­ling edit­or, I want to help raise JEB’s vis­ib­il­ity and to attract high-qual­ity sub­mis­sions from authors worldwide.

I am a mac­ro­e­volu­tion­ary bio­lo­gist study­ing how phen­o­types evolve, how spe­cies rich­ness accu­mu­lates and the factors that drive it.

Dur­ing my postdocs in Sweden and Spain I was lucky to join the ESEB com­munity by attend­ing the con­gresses, which I found both inspir­ing and fun.

In my research I pre­dom­in­antly using insect mod­els to test a vari­ety of evol­u­tion­ary the­or­ies, work­ing at the inter­face between dif­fer­ent dis­cip­lines. This includes under­stand­ing main­ten­ance of genet­ic vari­ance in com­plex sexu­al traits, how indir­ect genet­ic effects and gen­o­type-by-social envir­on­ment inter­ac­tions can drive the evol­u­tion of male sexu­al traits and the factors (e.g. diet, sexu­al selec­tion) pro­mot­ing the evol­u­tion of sex dif­fer­ences in lifespan and ageing.

As Hand­ling Edit­or, I have the oppor­tun­ity to read and sup­port the excel­lent research we are pro­du­cing as a field. My aim is for JEB to be an inclus­ive soci­ety journ­al show­cas­ing sol­id evol­u­tion­ary bio­logy research.
