The New York Times launches a two-year editing residency

The New York Times launches a two-year editing residency, aiming to foster the next generation of editors, giving them the tools and training they need “to help shape journalism in the future.”

“In just a few short years, The New York Times’s newsroom has made enormous strides in creating a first-in-class fellowship program. Our fellows have gone on to roles at The Times, The Washington Post, Bloomberg and beyond, after a year of intense development and training. Now, we are excited to announce the introduction of The New York Times Editing Residency, which will provide up to two years of extensive training and support,” the NYT announced.

The training will be focused on fundamentals: news judgment, style, tone and perspective, but trainees will be also equipped with digital skills.

“We’re looking to find and help the next great editors,” said Dean Baquet, executive editor. “Editing requires discipline, collaboration and empathy. It requires on-the-job training. Through this program, we want to bring along those future leaders.”

The company plans to open applications for these paid positions in early June, with some of the editors starting in fall 2021. 

Applicants must be able to work in the United States. More details about the program:
