IFoA - Annals of Actuarial Science (AAS) - Editor-in-Chief


Working from home


20 May 2020

Apply by

26 July 2020


Annals of Actuarial Science (AAS), which is owned by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) and published by Cambridge University Press, has become a well-established and respected journal since its first publication in 2006.  An online-only journal, it publishes research papers in all areas of actuarial science, including life insurance, non-life insurance, pensions, health insurance, finance and investment, econometrics, insurance economics, insurance data science and financial risk.

AAS is a flagship publication for the IFoA.  It acts as a key part of our research and thought leadership strategy to advance actuarial science, as well as being an outward and international facing element of our position as a leading learned society. 

The AAS Editorial Board is made up of an Editor-in-Chief, two Editors, and twelve Associate Editors.  The current Editor-in-Chief, Professor Angus Macdonald, who has held this position since 2008, has taken the decision to step down from the role.  We are therefore seeking an outstanding candidate as his successor.  The position is open to all applicants with the relevant experience and skills; location is not a barrier as participation in meetings is via conference/video conference call.

Key tasks

The Editor-in-Chief will work with the IFoA Executive and our publishing partner, Cambridge University Press, to develop and expand the journal and its impact.

The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for:

  • the overall quality, integrity and impact of the journal, helping to define and execute its vision 
  • leadership of the Editorial Board, including the management of the two Editors
  • attracting a growing number of high quality submissions to the journal
  • supervising the peer review process via the Scholar One platform.

Key skills and experience

The Editor-in-Chief should:  

  • have a strong track record of publication in international peer-reviewed journals
  • be able to act as an ambassador for the journal and be well known in the international actuarial community with access to the relevant networks
  • have prior experience of acting as Editor or part of an Editorial team
  • have a solid understanding of current research and emerging themes and trends in actuarial science 
  • have an understanding of key developments in the academic journal environment.

This is a remunerated role and a fee will be paid. Please see the specification for details and an indication of time commitment.
