Recruiting New Members for Nonreligion and Secularity’s Editorial Blog Team
Do you enjoy reading posts on Nonreligion and Secularity?
Do you have a keen interest in nonreligion and secularity research?
Would you like to become a member of the blog’s editorial team?
We are currently looking to expand and are seeking enthusiastic people to join Nonreligion and Secularity’s editorial team.
New team members will have the opportunity to play a dynamic role in the blog’s ongoing development, and its vision for the future.
Depending on experience, successful applicants will undertake some, or all, or the following responsibilities:
- Writing articles for the blog
- Commissioning articles from potential blog authors
- Responding to submissions
- Editing blog submissions
- Dealing with general inquiries about the blog
- Promoting the blog via social media and other sources
- Working with the other team members on ways to enhance and improve the blog website and increase exposure and traffic
- Participating in virtual team meetings, via email or Skype
We hope that team members will be able to write or commission 4 articles for the blog per calendar year. However, we understand that applicants may have other responsibilities, so we are happy to discuss commitments on an individual basis.
We welcome applications from people in all stages of their academic career, including post-graduate students and early career researchers. Research experience within the field of nonreligion and secularity, or previous experience of blogging, is useful but not essential. We are also keen to hear from applicants working in other related research areas who feel they can offer a valuable external perspective on topics relating to nonreligion and secularity.
The positions are unpaid, but offer applicants an opportunity to increase their editorial experience and the chance to engage with researchers and authors at the forefront of research in this field.
If you would be interested in joining the blog team please send a short cover note and CV by email to the Deputy Editors Katie Sissons and Yutaka Osakabe (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Deadline for applications: Friday 22nd January 2016
