Engagement Editor

Website JSKstanford John S. Knight Journalism Fellowships at Stanford University

The John S. Knight (JSK) Journalism Fellowships is an international program at Stanford University that champions innovators and entrepreneurs as they reinvent journalism.

Reporting to the managing director, editorial and operations, the engagement editor will manage the fellowship program’s social media channels and lead efforts to tell the story of the program’s work based on four themes that define its mission for journalism:

Challenging misinformation and disinformation.
Holding the powerful accountable.
Eradicating news deserts and strengthening local news.
Fighting bias, intolerance and injustice.

The engagement editor will recommend, implement and refine strategies that promote effective digital delivery of content by JSK staff, fellows and partners to target audiences. The editor will be responsible for tracking analytics and compiling regular reports on audience engagement that help inform digital strategy. Key to this role is to engage JSK’s community on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter to increase the audience for JSK-related content and generally expand awareness of the JSK Fellowships in the digital world.

Other responsibilities will include researching and creating original articles, photos, videos and graphics; creating and executing email campaigns; and covering JSK internal and external events.
