“Medium is expanding its editorial team. We are looking for an excellent, experienced features editor for Elemental, our publication focused on science-backed health and wellness.
You will conceive, assign, and edit ambitious features, essays, and columns—our “cover stories.” You will also write features when appropriate, using your strong writing and reporting skills to help define our publication’s identity.
This is a role for an ideas person who is a highly creative thinker and storyteller, endlessly curious about health and its related fields, and who is versatile enough to produce standout coverage across diverse topic areas, from nutrition and fitness to neuroscience and psychedelics. You have exquisite taste and an instinctive feel for what’s in the zeitgeist. You are confident working with writers at the top of their game, and are ready to get your hands dirty (and have fun!) writing stories yourself. You also know the competitive landscape of health and wellness publications, have great ideas about how to stand apart, and offer coverage that’s well-reported, thoughtful, and makes readers smarter.”
