Call for Editors

Nursing Clio is seeking editors and an assistant social media manager to join our team. Nursing Clio is an all-volunteer operation, but working with NC provides unique opportunities to gain experience in editing, digital humanities, and professional networking.

Interested applicants should send a letter of interest and a résumé/CV to nursingclio@gmail.com. Editor applicants should also include the writing sample described below. We especially encourage graduate students or recent PhD recipients to apply. Applications are due by June 15, 2021.

Editors

We are looking to add four new editors to our team! An editor reviews essays submitted by regular and guest writers to determine if they are suitable for the blog, and provides content and stylistic editorial feedback on essays that are accepted. Editors should have strong writing skills, have a background in history or related fields, and be familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style. We also hope to expand our collective fields of expertise beyond the United States and the United Kingdom, so individuals who have researched gender and/or medicine in Africa, Asia, continental Europe, Latin America, or Oceania are especially encouraged to apply. Editing experience is preferred. Must be able to commit to editing two essays and attending a one-hour staff meeting each month.

Editor candidates should submit a writing sample of no more than 2,000 words. Show us a piece of your writing that you’re proud of. This doesn’t need to be an academic writing sample – it can be a blog post, a Twitter thread, a creative piece, a piece for class, an op-ed, a book review, etc. We aren’t looking for something that matches the NC style necessarily, but we are looking for something that shows us what kind of writing you enjoy.

Assistant Social Media Manager

The assistant social media manager works with the social media manager and editorial team to publicize our blog posts, as well as to share and retweet content relevant to our readers. This person should be interested in sharing information and building community around both historical and present-day topics, including the history of medicine and gender, social justice, and reproductive rights. Applicants should be familiar with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and must be able to commit to a one-hour staff meeting each month.
