Ideally, candidates will have experience with community organizing, strong communication and project management skills, as well as a passion for open and participatory technology. Prior experience with academic/public journal editing is helpful, though not required. Priority will be given to students who are enrolled in or have completed the ITP program.
Our collective is only as strong as the diversity of its members. We therefore commit to actively foster the full participation of women, people of color, people with disabilities, and others historically excluded from the field as publishing leadership.
