The Register-Guard, a GateHouse Media newspaper in Eugene, Oregon is seeking an Opinion Editor.

We are looking for an experienced opinion writer to lead our opinion department as we seek to expand our audience and add new voices.

This person would be expected to refine and expand content found on our print opinion pages – but also would lead the way as we revolutionize our opinion department by developing and experimenting with new ways of encouraging information gathering and community discussion.

This editor should abhor stagnation and thrive on innovation, and have a demonstrated skill set in using podcasts, social media and other techniques designed to speak to new audiences. This person also should be a leader who knows how to foster discourse with an emphasis on offering balance through the many voices in our community.

Located in the Willamette Valley, Eugene is home to an informed, vocal citizenry and a diverse, independent, free-thinking population. Residents enjoy several local universities and colleges – including University of Oregon- and a vibrant arts, culture and entertainment scene along with an outdoor setting that allows for plenty of hiking, running, biking and other recreational pursuits.  You can easily enjoy an early morning hike along Oregon’s spectacular coast, mountain biking in the Cascades in the afternoon and be back for an IPA and food truck eats at one of our many local breweries – all in the same day.

Interested? Send resume and clips along with a cover letter to rgjob.applications@registerguard.com - Applications and complete job descriptions are available at: http://projects.registerguard.com/pages/rg-jobs/

Salary commensurate with experience and includes a comprehensive benefits package.
