Magazine Editing Job

Job Description:

Budget Title:  Senior Staff Assistant (SL-3)

Salary: Commensurate with education and experience

Binghamton University seeks a Magazine Editor in the University Communications area within the Office of University Communications and Marketing. The magazine editor is integral to Binghamton University Magazine – the University’s twice-a-year premier print publication – and the six annual school magazines, all of which use print and online content to share information about the institution, its alumni, and its faculty and students.

In this capacity, the magazine editor plans the development and production of the 60-page print editions of the University magazine, assigning stories, photos and illustrations; writing profiles, features and new items; editing articles and writing headlines; and working with the art director/designer on production of the magazine.

The University magazine is a principle source for advancing institutional stories, trends and developments and the magazine editor has primary responsibility for its appearance and tone. This requires building and nurturing a network of relationships, understanding the University’s goals and character and keeping up on the latest campus happenings in order to make sound editorial decisions.

In addition, the magazine editor will work with and consult with the editors of the six individual school magazines, helping to shape content and editorial direction, as well as writing stories as needed.

All of the magazines combined encompass research and scholarship, creative activities, alumni accomplishments, student stories, University initiatives and campus events. The position requires strong new instincts, storytelling skills and creativity. The magazine editor understands that each print story has the potential to be spun out to other forms of University media, from press releases to videos to tweets.

The magazine editor does not have any direct reports; however, the editor will work closely with a communications manager from the alumni office to ensure alumni are well represented. The magazine editor will hire, assign and supervise the work of professional freelancers and guide colleagues.
