The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) is a Stockholm-based international think tank with a reputation built on topics related to armament, disarmament and international security, with a recent expansion to researching the relationships between peace and development on the one hand, and climate change and security on the other. In doing so, it produces globally recognized publications and other text-based materials that receive extensive international media coverage. You will be responsible for editing and typesetting these texts for content and style. The work is of varying complexity and length, for a range of audiences and publication platforms. You will have the skills and capacity to manage editorial projects from concept to pre-press—seeing them through from substantive editing to final production under deadline.
In addition to editing texts as appropriate for the intended audience, you will check facts and coordinate the contributions of authors and others, ensuring that SIPRI’s high standards of language and factual accuracy are maintained.
This position combines strong technical, editorial and project management skills. The right candidate will be comfortable working with Microsoft Word and InDesign. Importantly, you will work with the SIPRI Style Guide and collaborate closely with the Communications Department. As a SIPRI editor you will play a key role in ensuring both quality of content (regarding facts, style and grammar) and of the end product (the look and feel of the finished piece).
