The American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) announces the search for Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of its journal, Pain Medicine, published by Oxford University Press.
Pain Medicine is unique amongst dedicated pain journals because it has always emphasized the need to represent the breath of scholarship in clinical and translational pain research. It has always published what is relevant to the field, and as a result, it is the only pain journal with dedicated sections for each of the major areas in our field. Pain Medicine is a forum for empirical findings, systematic reviews, and conceptual papers. The EIC is expected to be a recognized national or international leader in our specialty, with a scholarly track record and a record of high level performance in previous journal activities either within or outside the specialty of pain medicine. The EIC position is estimated to require 20 hours per week, or approximately 40% professional effort, with anticipated effort being distributed 5 days a week. Duties will include managing the virtual editorial office, senior associate editors, section editors, and the relationship with our publisher, Oxford University Press. The Editor-in-Chief will receive an annual salary + an incentive component based on journal performance. The EIC will also participate as an ex officio member of the AAPM Executive Committee.
Interested individuals should submit their CV and a brief cover letter conveying why they are interested in the position and the strengths of their skill set they would bring to the journal.
We are requesting these materials by Monday, December 7th at the latest. An AAPM task force will review all applications and discuss next steps with each candidate.
Please submit your application to Phil Saigh, AAPM Executive Director, at psaigh@Connect2amc.com
