WORK at the EPW

Senior Assistant Editor (Economics)

The Economic & Political Weekly (EPW) is looking to appoint a Senior Assistant Editor who would focus on economics.

The position is on contract basis.

The position will offer an opportunity to engage with a whole range of current research and writing on the economic issues of the day. The Senior Assistant Editor will be interacting with writers from across the world who seek to publish in the journal.

The responsibilities will involve tracking research in economics and commissioning papers for publication. It will also involve reviewing and editing submissions and collaborating in organizing special issues on economics. The selected candidate will have opportunities to write articles and book reviews as well as draft editorials. In addition, the candidate will be responsible for ensuring that articles are sent for publication in a smooth, efficient, and credible manner. The ability to work in a diverse team is an important facet of the role. EPW, thus, is looking for a candidate who holds a research degree (a PhD would be necessary) with a few years of experience in teaching/ academic journalism and publications (research writing/reportage). A command over English is essential since editing will be an integral part of the responsibilities. A familiarity with web applications and publication would be welcome.

The selected candidate would be required to work remotely for the time being and in future out of our Mumbai office.

The EPW tries to, but cannot, match the salaries of those in comparable positions in educational and research institutions. It, however, makes up by offering an opportunity to work in a unique institution that encourages its staffers to develop their skills and interests. The last date for submission of applications is 12.11.2021.

Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae along with a covering letter addressed to the editor at The selection will be made on the basis of a video conference call. The selected candidate should be in a position to join at the earliest. We will give preference to candidates from marginalised backgrounds who meet our requirements.
