The Senior Editor will join a team of 8–10 editors who are responsible for shaping Guttmacher’s publications. Products range in complexity from fact sheets and media materials to reports and articles for the Institute’s two peer-reviewed journals, Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health and International Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health. The Senior Editor position requires the following aptitudes:
- Excellent editing skills (command of grammar and usage; ability to edit technical material for diverse audiences; close attention to internal consistency and readability; ability to help authors formulate strong, cohesive arguments)
- Sufficient understanding of social science research methods and statistics to ensure accuracy, readability and effectiveness of both text and graphics
We strongly prefer that Senior Editor candidates also be familiar with the sexual and reproductive health field.
