WPR Is Hiring an Associate Editor

Tuesday, Nov. 9, 2021

World Politics Review, an online source of news and analysis on global affairs, is seeking an associate editor with deep knowledge of international affairs and top-notch editorial skills to oversee WPR’s daily briefings. In addition to our individual subscribers, WPR’s institutional subscribers include foreign and defense ministries, government agencies, international organizations, and leading think tanks and universities worldwide.

The associate editor will manage and edit our daily briefings; write articles for the site; and copy edit articles across the site. Working as an integral part of WPR’s collegial editorial team, the associate editor will contribute to shaping our coverage by helping to conceive story ideas for all our content channels. There will also be opportunities to work on WPR’s weekly podcast.

This is a mid-career position and relevant experience is required. The ideal candidate will have a journalism background and a passion for international affairs; display “perfect pitch” as an experienced editor and writer; and be very comfortable with all the tools of digital publishing. If you’d like to be a big part of a small team with a real impact, this is the job for you.

WPR offers a full package of benefits and adheres to a 40-hour work week. We are currently operating remotely, so the only geographical requirement for this position is adherence to a time zone that is compatible with our current work schedule. In practice, this means the candidate should reside in a time zone that is not more than six hours behind or two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-6 to GMT+2).

WPR is an equal opportunity employer. We are committed to a diverse and inclusive work environment and encourage applicants from all backgrounds.

The salary for this position is $70,000 per year.
