Recipes Project Seeking Editors

Professional Opportunities

Are you interested in recipes? The Recipes Project is an interdisciplinary, volunteer organization that examines history and experiences of food, magic, art, science and medicine. This work is the unpaid product of a community of passionate scholars of recipes. The project is looking for editors to join the team.

Social Media Editors:

  • Amplifying, sharing, and promoting writing on recipes, especially by underrepresented groups 
  • Running project social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Twitter)
  • Regular liaising with co-editors about site development, content, and promotion

Acquisitions Editors:

  • Engaging with underrepresented groups and areas of study related to recipes, especially among underrepresented groups and non-Western societies
  • Connecting with and inviting potential contributors 
  • Organizing, editing, and uploading posts in rotation with other co-editors 
  • Regular liaising with co-editors about site development, content, and promotion 

The team welcomes candidates from all backgrounds, including those engaged with the culinary arts, creative food writing, and academic research. They welcome scholars from a variety of disciplines: anthropology, comparative literature, classics, history, linguistics, literary criticism, sociology, and more. Graduate students are valued members of the community.  They particularly invite submissions from those from underrepresented groups and non-Western societies. 

To apply, please include a CV and one-page pitch describing what you wish to bring to the team. Acquisitions Editors: include two ideas for a month-long series and how you might expand the project’s reach to new audiences.
