The Pulitzer Center is seeking to expand our talented editorial team with an experienced, high-energy, creative Senior Editor. You will recruit and review proposals, select the most promising stories, and help take charge of editorial project management for an award-winning, innovative non-profit news organization recognized as a leader in independent funding of ambitious global reporting.
In 2006, the Pulitzer Center opened its doors with a donated desk, modest seed funding, and high ambitions: to fill in the gaps in under-funded global reporting and inspire a new generation of journalists to cover the big global issues that affect us all.
Since then, we’ve built an amazing staff and expanded our funding and mission to support more than 170 reporting projects a year on pressing global issues, sparking high-impact stories in more than 600 news outlets annually. We’ve expanded our mission to support in-depth, change-making stories at local news outlets struggling to do public service journalism as news industry revenue shrinks. We’re behind some of the highest-impact reporting of the last decade on conflict and peace-building, environment and climate change, migration and human trafficking, emerging science and health issues, criminal justice and much more. Our projects have won the Pulitzer Prize, George Polk Awards, Peabodys, Emmys, National Magazine Awards and more.
We’ve built a network of more than 1,300 professional journalists and hundreds of college students to do global and domestic reporting. We’ve forged strong partnerships with leading national and international media, including The New York Times Magazine, Le Monde, PBS NewsHour, and The New Yorker, as well as local, regional, and specialty media outlets in all continents. Our unique education and outreach program brings our projects and journalists into more than 500 classrooms and public forums annually.
We are looking for someone who shares our passion for raising awareness of critical global issues through journalism and education — and who has the energy and experience to help us achieve our goals. You will have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s most talented journalists and educators, and a deeply committed, hardworking, and high-spirited Pulitzer team, with plenty of opportunities to influence strategy and demonstrate leadership.
We believe public-interest journalism is a public good. We invite you to help us identify and support reporting that advances a deeper understanding of our world—informing the public, policymakers, and the next generation on defining challenges of our time.
