Openings at the EPW

Assistant Editor

The Economic & Political Weekly intends appointing an Assistant Editor.

The position offers an opportunity to engage with a range of writing and research on economics, politics and the social sciences.

The responsibilities will involve writing editorials, reviewing and editing submissions, and tracking news and research. The selected candidate will commission commentaries and articles for publication, interact with writers who seek to publish in the journal, and collaborate in organising special issues. They will also have opportunities to write articles and review books.

We are looking for a candidate with research and/or journalistic experience of at least three years, and publications (research writing/reportage). A PhD/MPhil in the above-mentioned subjects will be preferable.

Since editing will be an important part of the editorial work, a strong command over English is essential. An awareness of current affairs and contemporary debates in the social sciences will be useful. A familiarity with digital publishing will be welcome. The EPW tries to, but cannot, match the salary of those in comparable positions in educational and research institutions. It makes up by offering an opportunity to work in a unique institution, which encourages its staffers to develop their skills and interests.

This is a contractual position based in Mumbai.

Interested candidates should send in their curriculum vitae along with a covering letter addressed to the editor at edit@epw.in. The last date for submission of applications is 14th August 2020. The selection will be made on the basis of a videoconference call. The selected candidate should be in a position to join at the earliest.
We will give preference to candidates from marginalised backgrounds who meet our requirements.
