OPINION EDITORS (job) / by Bear Guerra

Via The New York Times:

“The New York Times Opinion department is looking for a Deputy Op-Ed editor who will be in charge of its Sunday Review section. Each week the review features some of The Times’s best writing and most provocative arguments, with a mixture of deep reportage, news analysis, humor, first-person narratives, photographs, illustrations and graphics. 

The Sunday Review editor oversees the commissioning and editing of essays by outside writers -- including in-depth cover stories. This editor should have an instinct for what sorts of pieces connect with The Times's audience and be able to advance constructive debate about big ideas. The editor also works closely with Opinion's art director and design director on the overall look of the section, collaborating in the selection of illustrations, photographs and other artwork. The job requires strong organizational and communications skills, creative ideas for framing pieces, deft editing hands and a discerning eye for good writing. A sense of humor helps.”
