The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS) is undertaking a search for Editor-In-Chief for the IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine (J-TEHM). JTEHM is an open-access PubMed indexed journal that bridges the engineering and clinical worlds, focusing on detailed descriptions of advanced technical solutions to a clinical need along with clinical results and healthcare relevance.
We seek an Editor-in-Chief who is internationally recognized and can bridge the engineering and clinical translation worlds. The ideal candidate has a vision for how to further engage the translational medicine community and position it as a recognized forum for technology translation in healthcare and clinical research for researchers, technology developers, healthcare providers including practicing physicians, and other stakeholders. We seek candidates who articulate a vision for reaching out and partnering with IEEE communities, clinical societies and who also have an understanding of the challenges in managing an open-access journal.
The Editor-in-Chief position is for a three-year term and is renewable for an additional three years. The term of appointment will start January 2019, with a transitional period overlapping with the current EiC in July, 2018. At the time of appointment, the successful applicant must be a member of the IEEE EMBS.
Nominations and applications will be accepted until a suitable candidate is selected. Review of applications by the Search Committee will commence in February 2018 and concludes as a soon as a final candidate is approved.
Nominations/applications should include the following in electronic format (pdf):
- Goals and strategy for improving intellectual quality, scientific impact and visibility of J-TEHM.
