|Assistant Editors wanted|
|Himal Southasian is looking for two Assistant Editors. The positions require the ability to support all aspects of the magazine’s production – both online and in print. This includes the ability to keep up to date with a wide range of issues related to Southasia, to develop story ideas, and to help commission and secure articles. Assistant Editors will also help run the Himal blog (currently being redesigned), select images for articles, oversee fact-checking, and supervise interns in producing material for sections such as Mediafile and Briefs. However, the primary skill required is the ability to edit ‘full length’ articles of the kind carried in Himal. Applicants have to be able to turn around article drafts on a wide range of topics, in accordance with the magazine’s in-house style. Besides foolproof competence in English-language editing, applicants must have a strong grounding in the social sciences and a keen understanding of Southasian history, economy, culture, geopolitics and current affairs.
Work Experience: Substantial editing, reporting, research and writing in mainstream media, though work with academic journals is also relevant. Experience in online journalism will be an asset.
The position is based in Kathmandu. Salary will be commensurate with experience and energy.
Application Process: Familiarise yourself with our magazine through the website, including its editorial content, then send a one-page note telling us ‘why Himal’ and suggest ideas on how you would develop the site further. Send CV, cover letter, and any full length article you may have published, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Recommendations are welcome, though not required.
