Description:

Jewish Currents, a magazine of the Jewish left, is seeking a passionate, thoughtful, and detail-oriented fellow for a remote one-year position to begin in June.

This is a great job for an early-career journalist who wants to develop as a writer, reporter, and/or editor, become an ace fact-checker, and get exposure to every aspect of the editorial process at a small progressive magazine. You don't need to be Jewish to work with us—just interested in journalism and left politics! In addition to covering Israel/Palestine and Jewish American politics, our beats include immigration, racial justice, the carceral punishment system, and social movements and organizing.

Responsibilities are as follows:

Additional responsibilities will depend on personal interests and may range from archival work to participation in our biweekly podcast. Fellows will also gain exposure to all aspects of the editorial and publishing process, and will be invited to attend weekly staff pitch meetings and regular professional development sessions conducted remotely, as well as twice-a-year staff retreats in New York City.

This is a full-time position; though fellows can work from anywhere, applicants should be able to work on Eastern Time. The position pays $41,000 annually and includes benefits. Applicants from marginalized identities, including identities marginalized in the Jewish community (Jews of color, Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews, queer and trans people) are encouraged to apply.

We will accept applications on a rolling basis. Please apply here by May 15th.
