Current vacancies

Editor for Anaesthesia

The successful applicant must be able to work well in a team, be able to keep to strict deadlines, have a history of publication and be able to write coherent and elegant English. Previous editorial experience is not essential but would be an advantage.

Editors typically work between 6–8 hours each week on the Journal and must also be prepared to attend four Editors’ and two Editorial Board meetings a year and contribute to the Association of Anaesthetists’ Winter Scientific Meetings and Annual Congresses. As well as the opportunity to work with an excellent and cohesive editorial team, rewards include an honorarium and free registration at major Association of Anaesthetists’ meetings. Applicants wishing to work part-time and who would consider job sharing are welcome to apply. Applicants with an interest in intensive care, obstetric and regional anaesthesia are also encouraged to apply.

Applicants should submit a brief summary, of up to 500 words, of what they think the Journal does well and/or could improve, by email to the Editor-in-Chief at, together with a brief CV (no more than two A4 pages) with the following headings:

  • Summary of current activities and professional areas of interest
  • Reasons for applying
  • Previous editorial/assessor experience
  • Recent publications

Shortlisted candidates may be asked to perform a small number of typical editorial tasks as part of the selection process and need to be available to do this during April 2020. There will be no interview.
