The policy publications editor works with NRDC's experts and partners to produce research, policy, advocacy, and fundraising materials. Under the direction of the Senior Policy Publications Editor, the editor will work closely with authors to craft persuasive policy arguments on clean energy, wildlife protection, clean and safe water, international climate action, and other environmental issues. The editor will also help to coordinate production from intake through layout and web posting.This role requires both an adept, flexible project manager as well as a thoughtful and meticulous editor who relishes the challenge of shifting priorities and dense, but important, material. The right candidate is a skilled wordsmith who can build relationships with authors and is unendingly curious about environmental issues down to the smallest details and up to the broadest implications. The editor should also be able to demonstrate a keen understanding of pervasive inequities (race, gender, socioeconomic status) and how they can intersect with environmental issues.While this position will mostly be responsible for policy publications, they will occasionally be asked to bring their editorial expertise to bear for other institutional content streams, including internal and donor communications .Applicants should apply with a resume and cover letter to www.nrdc.org/jobs.
