As the lead editorial support staff member for EJN - Internews' environmental media program, and a global community of over 13,000 journalists dedicated to covering environmental issues - the Editor manages, edits and maintains streams of content generated as a result of EJN programs, platforms and partnerships, improving upon content, monitoring and evaluating the reach and quality of EJN's editorial activities, and directly managing the production and distribution of EJN's content.

Until the situation meaningfully changes, this role will also function remotely. Ultimately, this position may be based in our Washington, D.C. office or remotely from another location in the United States. Candidates based anywhere in the United States are welcome to apply, and those who would prefer an office-based position should feel free to express this preference.
