POSITION: Editor for new global newsletter on Ecosystem-Based Management

EMPLOYER: Marine Affairs Research and Education

LOCATION: Seattle, Washington, USA

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Wednesday, June 27, 2007

DESCRIPTION: Marine Affairs Research and Education (MARE) is a unique 
nonprofit organization dedicated to serving marine resource managers 
worldwide with programs to help them network with peers and share best 
practices.  MARE seeks an editor for a new global newsletter on coastal and 
marine ecosystem-based management (EBM).  The newsletter is designed to be 
the pre-eminent source of news, analysis, and advice on implementation of 
coastal/marine EBM.

This is not an advocacy position.  The newsletter, produced by MARE in 
association with the University of Washington School of Marine Affairs, 
will take an objective view on EBM implementation, aiming to serve the 
broad international coastal/marine EBM community of resource managers and 
stakeholders (e.g., government agencies, NGOs, fishing industry, oil/gas 
sector, academia, and others).  This is a unique opportunity for a talented 
individual to help guide global implementation of EBM.

The EBM newsletter will be a sister publication to MPA News, MARE's global 
newsletter on planning and management of marine protected areas (MPAs).  
MPA News has subscribers in more than 110 countries and is the leading 
forum worldwide on MPA practice. 

*  Manage all production aspects of a quarterly newsletter, including 
research, interviews, writing, layout, printing, and distribution of paper 
and electronic versions.
*  Produce and post additional, value-added content for the project website 
on a monthly or more frequent basis.
*  Capture and report on developments in the EBM field, including news on 
trends and advances; leading and noteworthy initiatives; best practices; 
scientific and policy developments; principles; and emerging conceptions on 
the relationship between EBM and other ocean management tools.
*  Advance EBM through promotion of information exchange, including 
conducting interviews with leading EBM practitioners, policy makers, and 
researchers; soliciting essays and editorials by experts; and conducting 
polls of readers.
*  Solicit ideas from the newsletter's editorial board on potential news 
items, and feedback from the editorial board on quality of 
coverage/reportage and opportunities for improvement.

*  Exceptional and proven skills in writing and news-gathering
*  Strong familiarity with issue of coastal/marine EBM, including 
terminology, principles, and techniques
*  Experience in meeting regular deadlines
*  Familiarity with HTML and Adobe InDesign
*  Foreign-language competency preferred (French and/or Spanish)

SALARY: US$45K-$60K with excellent benefits. Position has funding for two 
years, with strong possibility of longer employment.

HOW TO APPLY: By e-mail or regular mail, submit resume and three samples of 
published writing (news reportage preferred) to:
