From The New York Times:

The Times Opinion Section is seeking fellows for writing and editing.

The editing and writing fellows will become versed in all the duties of Opinion-Editorial editors and writers. The fellows will fact-check and screen submissions and edit pieces under the close supervision of editors. In addition, the fellows will have ample opportunities to write.

Candidates should have a sharp eye for detail; a strong sense of fresh arguments and good writing; superb research skills; a devotion to the highest standards of accuracy, precision and verification; ability to dive into unfamiliar material on deadline; discretion in handling sensitive editorial material; and a strong interest in opinion journalism. A familiarity with trends in opinion writing among our competitors, an abiding interest in a wide range of subjects and strong news judgment are also critical.

The most competitive candidates will be college graduates or postgraduates or budding journalists of any age who have had news internships or equivalent experience. To apply, upload a résumé, cover letter and work samples.

This is a guild position.

Applicants must be authorized to work in the United States. The deadline to submit an application for this yearlong program is 11:59 p.m., New York time on November 19, 2018.
