CQ Roll Call is seeking an experienced line editor with a sophisticated and in-depth understanding of health policy and the regulatory agencies that oversee it. The right candidate will be able to frame and edit daily health stories intended for an audience of health policy experts and stake holders. The perfect applicant is comfortable translating complex regulatory and legislative actions for an informed audience. The position requires a collaborative, organized and hands-on line editor to manage daily operations in consultation with the editor. The best person has solid news judgment and is equally at ease improving short news stories as narrative ones that dig into policy developments. We are looking for someone familiar with the actions of the Department of Health and Human Services and the 2010 heath care overhaul. Familiarity with health policy making in Congress is needed. Top writing and editing skills are required.
