Calling all designers

The New York Times is hiring "news design editors" -- one full time and permanent, and one part time.
We layout and output the foreign, national, metro and business sections, and the inside of the culture section.

The job requires someone who is at ease working on deadline to produce clearly designed pages. You'll work with photo editors, graphics editors, art directors, section editors and copy editors, so we're looking for someone who can smoothly manage all these relationships -- and their often-clashing interests.

Flexibility in a hours is a must: Expect to work many nights and weekends.

Experience in copy editing will be helpful.

We're in the process of installing a new software system, so you should be open to learning new computer programs and methods. Familiarity with Windows and Quark (on Mac) are a plus.

And, no, I did not edit their postings. Maybe pointing out errors will help you get a job. (But probably not.)
