Editor and Team Leader

Wanted: E&E News -- the country's top energy and environment newsroom -- is looking for an experienced journalist to lead our natural resources team, one of the newsroom's most important and active teams.

The job: The natural resources editor will lead a team of roughly 10 reporters and coordinate with other editors on coverage and story placement. You'll help shepherd stories from conception to publication, support reporters in their work and help make their work better -- more thorough, accurate and well-written. You'll punch up headlines and choose appropriate photos and manage multi-reporter projects.

Is this for you? We're looking for an active editor -- someone who generates story ideas, helps reporters shape stories, find sources and develop their beats. You should be plugged into the news to make sure we're catching everything that our competition does -- typical and otherwise -- on a daily basis. You should have the story writing skills to help shape features and lead special projects. The ideal team leader would be someone who is either a natural leader or has developed the skills to take charge of a group and inspire them to do their best work.

To apply: Email your cover letter explaining why you'd be a good fit for this job and your resume to editorialjobs@eenews.net. Offer a few story ideas and/or show us some work you've written or edited on natural resources or related beats.
