We’re hiring!

We’re looking for two dynamic and experienced journalists to join The Conversation US team.

Do you have a passion for communicating the latest findings on how children learn language or the history of libraries? Do you enjoy working with scholars who are doing cutting-edge research in education, from pre-kindergarten to university? The Education Editor will cover a range of issues – from the impact of ‘grade skipping’ to the student debt crisis – to lead the Education desk at The Conversation US by commissioning and editing articles from scholars in the field.

Are you interested in how philanthropy is influencing education and health care? Are you curious about how charities are evaluated? Do you want to know more about the history of volunteerism? The new Philanthropy and Non-profit Editor will take a cross disciplinary approach to lead coverage of philanthropy and the non-profit sector at The Conversation US by commissioning and editing articles from scholars in this growing area of research.

Closing date for applications: Nov. 28, 2016
