Getty Publications is seeking a full-time Senior Editor to join the staff of its Editorial department. The Senior Editor will work closely with authors, designers, production coordinators, and other Getty staff and freelancers to produce a wide range of high-quality illustrated art books, including exhibition catalogues, collections-based titles, academic monographs, trade titles, and children’s books, for both print and digital formats.
Getty Publications produces award-winning books that result from or complement the work of the J. Paul Getty Museum, the Getty Conservation Institute, the Getty Research Institute, and the Getty Foundation. The approximately 35 titles published each year cover the fields of art, photography, archaeology, architecture, conservation, and the humanities for both the general public and specialists.
Getty Publications offers a collegial and collaborative environment where work-life balance is prioritized. We support a hybrid work schedule, with some days at our Getty Center offices and some days at home. Staff members can participate in community service and serve on committees on diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion, sustainability, and mentorship and community building.
Under broad direction from the Editor in Chief, the Senior Editor performs all editorial functions—including developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading—for publications on a variety of topics and with different levels of complexity, from concept to finished product. The Senior Editor works as part of a book team, project managing alongside staff from Rights, Design, and Production, and overseeing freelance contractors. Assists with the training and development of junior staff in the department and of the freelance pool. As appropriate and with supervisor approval, may also recommend and develop projects for acquisition.
