Assistant Web Editor, BMJ India
Based in India
The British Medical Journal has an exciting vacancy for an experienced online editor to drive the journal’s web presence in India.
BMJ Group’s flagship journal already has a strong readership in India but is set to launch a new bmj.com aimed at Indian doctors, academic researchers, and other healthcare professionals.
We plan to commission more content from Indian doctors, researchers, and journalists, and need a lively, talented, and hardworking web editor with a passion for clinical accuracy to update bmj.com India daily with the latest research, education, news, and comment.
The successful candidate will also be responsible for launching and managing bmj.com India’s social media presence, suggesting podcast interviews to our multimedia editors in London, commissioning bloggers to write lively and thought provoking copy about Indian healthcare, and writing regular email communications highlighting the latest articles of interest to readers in India.
There will also be scope to write news and features for the journal, and submit article ideas to editorial colleagues based in London and elsewhere.
You should be educated to degree level and with a background in journalism, publishing, or science communication, recent experience of web content management systems such as Drupal and WordPress, and picture editing and audio software. You should also have a broad understanding of India’s healthcare.
This post will ideally be based at BMJ Group’s offices in either Delhi or Mumbai. The web editor will report to the bmj.com editor, based in London, and be part of a lively and talented team of web and multimedia editors. Experience of working in teams based in different geographical locations would therefore be an advantage. This post will involve occasional travel to the UK.
