The American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic
Works (AIC) is seeking an Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of the
American Institute for Conservation (JAIC).

The position of Editor-in-Chief (EIC) of the Journal of the American
Institute for Conservation (JAIC) primarily involves reviewing new
submissions to the Journal, assigning each submission to an
appropriate Lead Editor and Associate Editor (AE) in conjunction
with the Senior Editor, and making final decisions based on
Associate Editor and reviewer comments.  Both EIC and the Senior
Editor review final proofs.  The EIC also requests proposals for
special issue topics, writes a bimonthly column for "AIC News" in
coordination with AIC's Communications Director, and selects new AEs
as needed.  The EIC also makes final decisions about book reviews,
the order of articles, and cover images for each issue.  The EIC
works with the AIC Communications Director, who serves an
administrative role with JAIC.

JAIC publishes four issues annually, with an average of 50
submissions per year.  Submissions are made via Editorial Manager
and the EIC will be expected to use that program; training and
assistance will be provided.

The Editor-in-Chief serves as an independent contractor to the AIC
and is given an annual stipend of $8,000.  Reimbursable expenses
include travel, hotel, and per diem to the November IAG meeting in
Washington, DC, and travel and one hotel night only to the AIC
Annual Meeting.  The expectation is that the EIC will attend both of
these meetings as the JAIC representative.

The Editor-in-Chief reports to the AIC Executive Director and works
in cooperation with the AIC Communications Director and the Board
Director of Communications.  Please submit a resume and cover letter
describing related skills and interests to Eryl Wentworth
