World Politics Review, an online source of news and analysis on global affairs, is seeking a senior editor with deep knowledge of international affairs and top-notch editorial skills to provide polish and precision to all of WPR’s editorial content.
WPR is known and valued for its commitment to quality and integrity. 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.
We pay particular attention to important but undercovered stories as well as underexamined aspects of the news making headlines, and cover often-ignored corners of the world independently of whether and how they affect U.S. interests.
The senior editor will be responsible for managing and editing our daily briefings, and will do the final editorial pass on our daily newsletters. Working as an integral part of WPR’s collegial editorial team, the senior editor will contribute to shaping our coverage by helping to conceive story ideas, while ensuring that everything we publish meets our high editorial standards for clarity, substance and rigor.
This is a mid-career position, and relevant experience as an international affairs editor is required. The ideal candidate will have a journalism background and a passion for international affairs; display “perfect pitch” as an experienced editor; 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 to be located in a time zone that is compatible with our current work schedule. In practice, this means 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 $75,000 per year.
