Editorial Fellow

Job description

Editorial Fellow

Foreign Policy is seeking talented, early-career editors for its editorial fellowship program starting in June. This yearlong position offers candidates the chance to work closely with our team of experienced editors and writers analyzing the most important developments around the world. Editorial fellows can expect to develop their editing skills and take on a growing share of newsroom responsibilities on newsletters, social media, planning, and more. 

We’re looking for curious, creative, and collaborative candidates who have a passion for international politics and a commitment to high-quality journalism. A sense of humor doesn’t hurt either. We consider fellows to be essential members of the team. 

Applicants should have a high level of interest in the nuts and bolts of putting together both a web publication and a print magazine, a proven ability to navigate the line between academic writing and general interest journalism, a keen sense of the news cycle, and know how to juggle multiple projects on tight deadlines.

Applications close Feb. 29.

  • Edit stories for FP and prepare them for publication under the supervision of senior editors
  • Assist in all elements of print and web production, including research and fact-checking
  • Help write and curate newsletters
  • Review pitches
  • Generate article ideas
