We are looking for an intellectually curious person who is interested in big questions, passionate about democratizing ideas, and has the experience to tackle a variety of challenging projects. Zócalo is a thriving Los Angeles-based nonprofit organization and a creative unit of Arizona State University dedicated to connecting people to ideas and to each other. Our mission is to create a welcoming intellectual space offline and online by convening smart events and publishing thoughtful, wide-ranging essays. We are a high-spirited team partnering with some of the country’s most prestigious intellectual enterprises. Since our founding in 2003, we have presented over 500 events in 23 cities, seven states, and six countries. We syndicate our journalism to 290 media outlets worldwide and co-present events with the Smithsonian Institution, the Getty Museum, and KCRW among others. For the Senior Editor position, we are looking for applicants who pride themselves on their editing skills, ability to organize projects, and commitment to rigor, and willingness to jump into the fray. This opportunity is perfect for someone who loves books—particularly history—and will thrive in the close-knit community that brings Zócalo’s nonideological and generous spirit to life. The Senior Editor has three areas of responsibility. In partnership with the Smithsonian, Zócalo regularly publishes essays, written by historians, on the question of  What It Means to Be American . Under the direction of the Editor-in-Chief and the Deputy Editor, the Senior Editor will stay abreast of recent history books, assign essays to authors, and do first edits to work with the authors to develop their essays for publication. This position calls for a strong and broadminded background in history as well as an interest in the deeper questions raised by the series. Editors need to pay close attention to historical details and nuances, and must be able to work intensively with academic writers to make their work accessible to a wide audience. In addition, the Senior Editor will work on special projects, including Zócalo’s yearly book prize, the poetry prize, and other editorial needs. These projects require both organizational skills—organizing entries, communicating with publishers and judges, and hitting firm deadlines—and creative ones including interviewing winners and writing press releases. This work requires the ability to both shepherd a project over the long-term and to think on one’s feet. Finally, the editor will work on editorial content related to Zócalo’s events programming. Responsibilities will include writing event rundowns, editing event descriptions, and conducting one-on-one interviews with our speakers. Previous reporting experience is a definite plus but is not required. This position will work collaboratively with the Editor-in-Chief, Deputy Editor, and Associate Editor. The Senior Editor must be able to work out of Zócalo’s offices in downtown Los Angeles, and commit to long hours, occasional weekend and evening work, and some domestic and international travel. Pay and benefits are competitive.

Interested applicants should send cover letter, resume, and writing and/or editing samples to  jobs@zocalopublicsquare.org . Please include “Senior Editor” in the subject line.
