Inverse is seeking an Editor to edit its growing Mind & Body coverage. For the past year, we've been increasing our reporting on the latest in nutrition, psychology, drugs, sleep, sex, exercise, & mental health & seen how well this coverage resonates with our audience. We're ready for an editor to lead several writers to entertain & inform our audience of millennial-aged, truth-seeking readers.
Look, there's a lot of junk on the internet in this area. Which is why we interview academics & researchers to help our readers cut through the BS that expands around wellness topics like a marshmallow in the microwave. There aren't a lot of easy answers to the big questions about our minds or bodies. Our reporting acknowledges that & hopefully helps people understand those trends from the inside.
The ideal candidate is attracted to intermittent fasting, ketosis, & other buzzy nutrition ideas, aiming to fully explore each, sometimes giving them the benefit of the doubt in the pursuit of the full story & the truth that lies somewhere in there. Our ultimate goal is to give readers good info without condescension or judgment.
This Mind & Body Editor reports to the Science Editor & manages a roster of writers. The Mind & Body Editor is expected to write a few shorter stories a week & one short feature story a month.
To apply, send 5 recent/relevant clips & your resume. A brief cover letter is preferred.
