The Publications Editor aligns technical and general audience content to the highest level of Bureau standards for internal and public-facing New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources publications.
This is achieved primarily through the editing and review of manuscripts that are developed by both Bureau scientific and non-technical staff as well as external contributors. The Publications Editor also contributes writing, editing and proofreading to projects that support Bureau research, promotional, and administrative initiatives.
The prospective candidate must have a content-integrity mindset, a thorough understanding of how content works with graphics, ownership and application of editing and visual style guides, management of all editorial assets, the desire to cultivate positive working relationships with all collaborators, and an arsenal of top-notch project management, time management, and organizational skills.
To flourish in this position, the Publications Editor must have a demonstrated and unfailing command of the end-to-end quality assurance process, its tools and methodologies, and sharp editorial instincts to ensure accuracy, consistency, readability, and accessibility of documents and graphics across all of the Bureau's electronic and print publication formats. A self-motivated, curious, and collaborative individual will be a good fit for this team.
We recognize that no single candidate will possess all the desired qualifications. We're looking for someone with an eagerness and ability to jumpright in, build on their existing skill sets, and contribute to the success of this integral Bureau program. Training will be provided where expertise gaps exist; applicants with deeper experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
