Shameless magazine, a Canadian independent, feminist voice for young women and trans youth, is hiring a head of research. Are you devoted to grassroots publishing? Do you have a commitment to anti-oppression and inclusive feminist politics? Do you have some time to volunteer and a vision for Shameless? Then we need you.

We are looking for a smart, sassy, shameless person to work as our new head of research.

We are looking for people who work well collaboratively, who have a good sense of Shameless’s editorial vision, who are committed to anti-racist feminist politics, who have editorial experience, and who are excellent communicators and work well over email (Shameless has no office).

All positions are part-time, requiring 5-10 hours per week, depending on the production cycle of the magazine. Most people who work on the magazine do so outside of regular business hours, and meetings will likely be held during evenings and weekends.

Like all roles on this volunteer-run magazine, these positions are unpaid. (If you have ideas for how we can change that, then please get in touch!)

We strongly encourage applications from women and trans people of colour and Indigenous women and trans people and those with experience with anti-racist feminist politics and/or anti-racist feminist organizations. Preference will be given to residents of the Greater Toronto Area to facilitate face-to-face meetings with magazine staff.

Please email a resume, a cover letter telling us why you’re best suited for the position, and references to sheila@shamelessmag.com. The deadline for applications is Monday, September 17, 2012. We’ll contact you if we’d like to set up an interview.
