This is not everyone's ideal job, but I would like very much to spend many hours each day identifying and fixing mistakes in working papers and books. However, I am not quite sure how to get paid for it.
Most peer-reviews are done by collegiate professor who also write and publish papers of their own. I don't have a yearning to publish my own papers; I would prefer want to revise and improve others' work. Additionally, I don't have a Ph.D. The highest degree I have is a baccalaureate (It is in mathematics at the very least).
When I took the GRE I was in the 98th percentile for verbal reasoning. This and other indicators seem to show that I might be a good editor. However, I really would like to review papers in mathematics (or closely related fields, such as computer science). Although editing at The New York Times, or fictional novels for Tor Books™ might be someone's dream job, I very much love math.
I am very good with logic (the formal kind), comfortable writing proofs, and unperturbed by mathematical equations which send the general populace feeling in terror. I have no previous job experience as an editor (besides a pitiful stint at my high school newspaper) and I am not sure where to start looking.
A penny for your thoughts?
