In addition to being familiar with and a fan of The Public Domain Review, the ideal candidate will have relevant writing, editing, and research experience. It would be a bonus if you have an academic background in fields in which we often publish essays and collections (e.g. early modern prints, rare books, or the history of science). We particularly welcome expressions of interest from people with Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, as these groups are currently under-represented in the cultural sector.
This will be primarily a remote working arrangement and you can be based anywhere in the world, though the fall of hours worked should at least partly overlap with a 9am to 6pm UK weekday. The PDR team is very small and you will be working mostly on a one-to-one basis with the Editor-in-Chief. (If you are based in London there may be opportunity to work face-to-face but this is not a requirement.)
While your work with us will reach an extensive audience, we are a small not-for-profit project running on a tight budget which is reflected in the pay we can offer. But what we lack in financial firepower we hope we can make up for in interest and flexibility of the work. Starting hourly rate offered will be commensurate with experience: range $16–$20/hour (ca. $33–$42k pro rata) / £12.50–£15/hour (£26k–£31k pro rata).
