Jewish Currents is currently hiring a fellow for the 2023-24 year. This is a great job for an early-career journalist who wants to become an ace fact-checker and develop as a writer, reporter, and/or editor. Read the description below and on our website to find out more!
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 September. We will accept applications on a rolling basis. Please apply here by June 23rd.
Responsibilities are as follows:
- Fact-checking print and web pieces
- 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 pieces
Additional responsibilities will depend on the fellow’s personal interests and may range from archival work to participation in our biweekly podcast. Jewish Currents will provide the mentorship and training required to meet the demands of the role. 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 an annual salary of $47,500 and includes benefits. You do not have to be Jewish—or a current expert in Jewish politics—to be right for this job, though you must demonstrate a familiarity with our work and our position in the media landscape. 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.
