Now in its second century, Audubon is dedicated to protecting birds and other wildlife and the habitat that supports them. Audubon’s mission is engaging people in bird conservation on a hemispheric scale through science, policy, education and on-the-ground conservation action. By mobilizing and aligning its network of Chapters, Centers, State and Important Bird Area programs in the four major migratory flyways in the Americas, the organization will bring the full power of Audubon to bear on protecting common and threatened bird species and the critical habitat they need to survive. And as part of BirdLife International, Audubon will join people in over 100 in-country organizations all working to protect a network of Important Bird Areas around the world, leveraging the impact of actions they take at a local level. What defines Audubon’s unique value is a powerful grassroots network of nearly 500 local chapters, 23 state offices, 41 Audubon Centers, Important Bird Area Programs in 50 states, and 700 staff across the country. Audubon is a federal contractor and an Equal Opportunity Employer (EOE).
The Associate Editor is a full-time journalism position working within Audubon’s editorial department. This position involves writing, commissioning, and editing content for Audubon.org and Audubon magazine, a publication that covers a broad range of stories through the lens of birds, the issues that affect them, and the people who care about them. The Associate Editor will split their time working on our print and digital products.
We are a small team doing big things, and as finalists in the National Magazine Awards each year since 2015, we are recognized for it. Working for a century-old magazine that is also driven to innovate and reach new audiences, the Associate Editor will have the opportunity to pitch quirky profiles and ambitious features, break news, and push the boundary on our multimedia work—we are looking for a motivated, versatile team member who will bring their own skills, background, and interests to the role. If that’s you, please include a cover letter with linked clips when applying to this position.
Audubon believes that building a diverse team will enable us to more effectively fulfill our mission, and we encourage people of all backgrounds to apply.
