The Economic & Political Weekly is looking for a web editor who will be in charge of its online edition. The duties of the web editor would be to commission contemporary commentaries, invite blogs, moderate discussions and work towards developing a distinct identity for the online edition.
The web editor would work with the editorial team and should also be expected to suggest and operationalise new “online publishing”-related ideas on a continuing basis. The web editor should have an interest in current affairs and the social sciences, and also in online publishing.
Knowledge of open source content management systems and their architecture would be a bonus but can be acquired on the job. The web editor would initially (for at least six months) be based in Bombay. Thereafter she can choose to work out of either Bombay or Hyderabad.
Salary would initially be equivalent to that of an assistant editor in EPW. If you have a background in the social sciences and possess the above interests/qualifications please write to firstname.lastname@example.org before June 15.
