Wanted: Managing Editor

— by

Volume has a vacancy for a managing editor!

He or she will be responsible for the textual quality of the magazine and all related text production. This includes editing and finalizing author contributions, proof reading and taking care of the textual integrity and consistency of Volume. Dealing with deadlines and timeframes is part of the job, and so is communicating with contributors from different cultural and language backgrounds. A potential second element of the position is contributing to Volume’s content in editorial meetings and with own contributions. Volume offers a prestigious platform and network to contribute to and work with.

Candidates must be native English, fluent in speech and writing, have serious editorial experience, be precise and deadline aware. To be able to participate in content production candidates should be open, curious, internationally aware and research minded. A degree in architecture is considered as positive. The position is on a freelance basis and (depending on editorial involvement) can add up to 3 days a week at our offices in the vibrant surroundings of the Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam-Noord.

Please send your resume and motivation to Lilet Breddels (lb@archis.org) before August 1.

Volume is an independent quarterly magazine that sets the agenda for design. With going beyond architecture’s definition of ‘making buildings’ it reaches out for global views on designing environments, advocates broader attitudes to social structures, and reclaims the cultural and political significance of architecture. Volume is a project by Archis (Amsterdam), AMO (Rotterdam) and C-Lab (Columbia University, New York).
