Job Details

The Wenner-Gren Foundation invites applications for its Public Fellowship program.  This year, the program will place one fellow in a two-year term (2022-2023) staff position at SAPIENS, the Foundation's online magazine.  The fellow will participate in the substantive work of the magazine and receive professional mentoring.  This initiative aims to expand the role of doctoral education by demonstrating that the capacities developed in the advanced study of anthropology have wide application, both within and beyond the academy.  The program allows advanced scholars to gain career-building experience in public media and science communication.

The position has five primary areas of work, which include the following: 1) oversee the magazine's art editing process, 2) identify articles by anthropologists for republication, 3) oversee the magazine's translated articles and process, 4) write Q&A articles and other content, and 5) oversee the magazine's pedagogical projects.  The fellow will also regularly meet with the editorial team to build a cohesive editorial vision for the magazine and to ensure the publication's editorial systems are effective and efficient; conduct online or in person workshops for anthropologists on the craft of writing; represent the magazine at conferences and other venues; and collaboratively work with editing colleagues within the publication through Slack.


The Wenner-Gren Foundation is a private operating foundation dedicated to the advancement of anthropology throughout the world. To learn more about the foundation please visit our website at
