Pain Medicine is unique amongst dedicated pain journals because it has always emphasized the need to represent the breadth 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 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.
