The Editor-in-Chief will be tasked broadly with oversight and further development of all aspects of simonsfoundation.org, including flatironinstitute.org.

The Editor-in-Chief will ensure that the website reflects the Simons Foundation brand and mission through excellent content, graphics and design and that the website functions properly. The website serves a crucial functional role as a central nexus of communication with grantees, grant applicants, scientists generally, and the press and public and as such must present content accurately and in a manner relevant and appropriate to these highly educated and discerning audiences.

It is expected that the successful candidate will be from an online background in the sciences or mathematics, be very familiar with the online science landscape and have the strategic ability to develop the website's offerings in a mission-relevant way. The candidate should also be familiar with web-development processes used to create new site features and have experience building and managing teams.

The successful candidate will be able to work with program leaders to develop written, video and audio content in a way that meets expectations and reflects the highest-quality scientific thinking. Put differently, this position is an excellent opportunity for the right individual to sculpt and grow significant online offerings aimed at scientists and the public.

This position reports to the communications director and does not involve the production of journalistic work. Specifically, this position does not involve content work for Quanta Magazine or for Spectrum, two journalistic sites under the Simons Foundation umbrella.

Salary is commensurate with experience.
