Harper’s Magazine is hiring an Assistant Editor who will be primarily responsible for fact-checking print features.

Previous fact-checking experience, familiarity with Harper’s, and fluency in a second language are all preferred, but not required.

The position is full-time and based in New York City. Salary will depend on experience, and the benefits package includes a generous health-insurance plan. Harper’s is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and we are committed to diversity in the workplace.
