2022-2023 Fellowship

Jewish Currents, a magazine of the Jewish left, is seeking a passionate, thoughtful, and detail-oriented fellow for a remote one-year position to begin in June.

Responsibilities are as follows:

  • Fact-checking print and web pieces (JC will provide training!)
  • Evaluating pitches and other editorial content
  • Generating ideas for editorial pitch meetings
  • Assisting staff writers and editors with research
  • Editing, reporting, and writing pieces
  • Supporting events
  • Copy-editing and proofreading web piece

Additional responsibilities will depend on personal interests and may range from archival work to participation in our biweekly podcast. Fellows will also gain exposure to all aspects of the editorial and publishing process, and will be invited to attend weekly staff pitch meetings and regular professional development sessions conducted remotely, as well as twice-a-year staff retreats in New York City.

This is a full-time position; though fellows can work from anywhere, applicants should be able to work on Eastern Time. The position pays $41,000 annually and includes benefits. Applicants from marginalized identities, including identities marginalized in the Jewish community (Jews of color, Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews, queer and trans people), are encouraged to apply.

We will accept applications on a rolling basis. Please apply here by May 15th.
