Call for Editors
Nursing Clio is seeking four new editors to join our team. Interested applicants should send a letter of interest and a résumé/CV to email@example.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 July 31, 2022.
An editor reviews pitches submitted by regular and guest writers to determine if they are suitable for the blog, and provides collaborative 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. Editing experience is preferred. Must be able to commit to a flexible 3-5 hour weekly workload and attending a one-hour Zoom 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 is representative of your work. This doesn’t need to be an academic writing sample – it can be a blog post, a Twitter thread, a creative piece, a class assignment, 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 representative of your work that shows us what kind of writing you value.
Social Media Manager
Nursing Clio is seeking a social media manager to join our current social media manager. Interested applicants should send a letter of interest and a résumé/CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. We especially encourage graduate students or recent PhD recipients to apply. Applications are due by July 31, 2022.
Our social media manager monitors daily social media conversations. Daily tasks may include:
- Promoting new pieces on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram
- Amplifying content and replying as necessary to comments
- Engaging with the broader social media community by liking, retweeting, and sharing relevant posts from other handles and organizations
- Reposting NC content relating to trending topics and current events
- Organizing special social media projects, such as live Twitter book club or Q&A sessions
Please make space in your letter of interest to describe the relevant experience that will prepare you to promote NC’s work and grow our network through social media. Links to past projects, where applicable, are welcome!
On our hiring practices
The editorial staff of Nursing Clio is currently made up primarily of white scholars with expertise in modern US history. As the blog grows, we are seeking to expand our collective knowledge and decenter whiteness in our scholarly community. Individuals with expertise in histories of gender and/or medicine in Africa, Asia, Latin America, or Oceania are especially encouraged to apply.
This is not a paid position. Nursing Clio is an all-volunteer operation, but working with NC provides unique opportunities to gain experience in editing, digital humanities, and professional networking.
