Job Number: 77541

The John S. Knight (JSK) Journalism Fellowships is an international program at Stanford University that champions innovators and entrepreneurs as they reinvent journalism.

Reporting to the managing director, editorial and operations, the engagement editor will manage the fellowship program's social media channels and lead efforts to tell the story of the program's work based on four themes that define its mission for journalism:

Other responsibilities will include researching and creating original articles, photos, videos and graphics; creating and executing email campaigns; and covering JSK internal and external events.

Company Profile
In 1876, former California Governor Leland Stanford purchased 650 acres of Rancho San Francisquito for a country home and began the development of his famous Palo Alto Stock Farm. He later bought adjoining properties totaling more than 8,000 acres. The little town that was beginning to emerge near the land took the name Palo Alto (tall tree) after a giant California redwood on the bank of San Francisquito Creek. The tree itself is still there and would later become the university's symbol and centerpiece of its official seal.

I was facing the seven-year itch at my previous workplace. Thanks to EmploymentCrossing, I'm committed to a fantastic sales job in downtown Manhattan.
