Reminder: SCOTUSblog is hiring
on Jun 3, 2016 at 5:00 pm
SCOTUSblog is looking for a new editor, to start work in September 2016. The editor’s responsibilities will include (among other things) a careful edit of each post that is published on the blog, drafting a daily round-up of news and commentary related to the Supreme Court, and working with the blog manager to identify authors for case coverage and symposia, as well as possible topics for symposia. The ideal candidate will have strong writing and copy editing skills, a close (bordering on obsessive) attention to detail, and a background in legal journalism and/or the Supreme Court. The position is a full-time one, for which the workload generally mirrors the Court’s schedule – that is, very busy on big argument and opinion days, but with fewer time-sensitive posts and more flexibility at other times of the year. The job is based at the blog’s headquarters in Bethesda, Maryland.
Please submit a cover letter, current resume, writing sample, and two references to Amy Howe, by June 10 via either e-mail (ahowe [at] scotusblog.com) or snail mail:
