One of the nation’s top medical research centers is on the hunt for an editor to manage content as they completely redesign and relaunch a vital website. If you’re an experienced medical editor with an understanding of how users navigate the digital realm as they search for information, this could be your next gig.
Our client’s name often shows up next to or near the words ‘prestigious’ and ‘premier.’ This is a leading medical center with national reach, providing care and conducting research at several different facilities all over New York. As an editor on a dedicated relaunch team for the cancer center, you’ll edit and restructure content to work with the site redesign. It will be your job to make sure all digital content on the website meets the gold standard set by the pioneering work they do.
You will be responsible for a variety of content types, from descriptions of research programs to information for patients and current events. Using an ‘authoritative yet welcoming’ editorial voice, the content will be more about presenting information with clarity, and less about marketing appeal. With this in mind, you will make sure that the work is done accurately and succinctly, while making the trains run on time for the big redesign.
