Job Description

The Opinions section seeks an experienced editor to join our op-ed team. There is a strong internal candidate for this position but we are eager to consider other applicants. The successful candidate will have a highly entrepreneurial attitude toward opinion journalism and enthusiasm for seeking out and understanding perspectives other than one's own. The candidate must have exceptional editing skills, including the desire and proven ability to work with both highly polished writers and those who need significant help turning their ideas into effective essays and arguments. Duties will include quickly finding and working with outside writers to produce smart and influential commentary in response to the daily news cycle, as well as working closely with our in-house columnists and bloggers. The position requires some on-call weekends on a rotating basis.

We have identified a strong internal candidate for this position, but we're interested in hearing from anyone who wants to know more about Opinions and might be interested now or in the future.
