NOTCHES is seeking an editor and a social media manager to join our team. NOTCHES is an all-volunteer operation, but working with us provides a valuable opportunity to gain experience in editing, writing and public history, and to build professional networks.
Applicants should send a letter of interest and a brief CV (no more than 2 pages in total) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st October 2021. We envisage that applicants for these positions will be currently undertaking, or will have completed, relevant postgraduate study, but are happy to receive applications from candidates who are currently employed outside of academia, and from anywhere in the world. We are looking for candidates who can contribute approximately 2-3 hours of work per week, and who are able to commit to the role for minimum of one year.
Editor (Early Modern History)
We are looking to add a new editor, specialising in early modern history (c. 1500-1800), to our team. Our editors review submissions in their field, commission essays, and provide editorial feedback on essays that are accepted. They also contribute their own articles to the blog. Editors should have strong writing skills, and have a background in the history of early modern sexuality; they are likely to be studying for, or to hold, a PhD in the field. Editing experience is a bonus, but not required. Must be able to commit approximately 2-3 hours per week. Candidates for this position should also submit a 250 word pitch for an article they would like to write for NOTCHES.
Social Media Manager
The new social media manager will work with our existing social media manager and our editorial team to publicise our blog posts. This person should have a keen interest in the history of sexuality, and must be familiar with Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. For the right candidate, there would also be scope to take on editorial responsibilities in due course, and to contribute to NOTCHES as a writer. This role will involve no more than 2-3 hours per week.
