Job Description:

The Investigative Fund is a nonprofit newsroom for independent journalists, dedicated to incubating investigative reporting with the potential for social impact. Our investigations are published or broadcast in partnership with a wide variety of print, broadcast and online outlets. Investigative Fund stories have sparked FBI investigations, Congressional inquiries, federal indictments, the resignation of public officials, and more; they have also won many of journalism’s top awards, including the Emmy, the Polk Award, the National Magazine Award, and the Investigative Reporters & Editors Medal.

The Investigative Fund is a project of The Nation Institute, a nonprofit media center that is also home to a bestselling book publishing imprint, Nation Books; the widely syndicated website TomDispatch; the Victor S. Navasky Internship Program; and a Journalism Fellowship program that supports dozens of reporters every year.

The Managing Editor will have both editorial and administrative duties, including:

  • A part-time editorial load, commissioning, editing, and overseeing stories
  • Communications, including overseeing editorial messaging for our outside PR firm, project emails, and on social media
  • Managing web production
  • Administration, including managing editorial meetings; project budget; and relationships with contractors, such as freelance fact checkers
  • Development, including liaising with the Nation Institute’s development team and providing editorial input into proposal writing and grant reporting


Skills:
The ideal candidate will have strong reporting, writing, editing, and organizational skills; sound editorial judgment; and sophistication about social media. Experience editing and vetting complex feature-length work required; experience reporting or editing investigative journalism preferred.
