Now Hiring: Investigative Editor

The editor will work primarily on stories for In These Times’ Leonard C. Goodman Institute for Investigative Reporting, which offers competitive rates to support ambitious investigations to be published in In These Times and The Institute has made a name for itself uncovering corporate wrongdoing, exposing the wages of U.S. warmongering, and telling the stories of low-wage workers, Native people and others to whom the mainstream media gives short shrift. 

The editor will be responsible for managing all aspects of an investigation, from writer recruitment and story selection to editing and publication, as well as co-running the Institute with In These Times’ Executive Editor. The Goodman Institute supports both early-career and established investigative reporters; the investigative editor should be adept at calibrating their editing to the author’s experience level and generous with mentorship and support.

You will join a close-knit team that cares passionately about economic, racial and climate justice. We’re also a proud union workplace with an internal culture that strives to live up to the ideals we advocate every day through our journalism.
