Anaesthesia ReportsEditor vacancy

The Association of Anaesthetists is looking to appoint one new Editor for Anaesthesia Reports.


The role of the Editor is mostly email and web-based and involves reviewing submitted manuscripts and editing them in preparation for publication (expected time dedicated to journal work is 2-4 hours per week). We will consider applicants who wish to undertake the role on a less than full time contract. The successful applicants should have a history of publication, be able to write coherent and elegant English, and have good time management skills. Previous editorial experience is not essential, but experience of acting as a reviewer for papers submitted to peer-review journals is desirable.

The term of office is three years with up to two extensions by mutual agreement and after performance review. As well as the opportunity to work with an excellent and cohesive editorial team, Editors receive an honorarium and free registration at major Association of Anaesthetists’ meetings.

Applicants should submit a short essay of up to 500 words on ‘The value of Quality Improvement articles in peer-review journals’  by email to the Editorial Co-ordinator, Erin Taylor ([email protected]) , together with a short curriculum vitae (no more than two A4 pages). Shortlisted candidates will be asked to perform a small number of editorial tasks as part of the selection process.
