The Observer

Join our editorial board

Each year, The Observer must appoint an editorial board for the following school year. While most of our editorial board positions are filled for the 2020-2021 academic year, we do still have some openings. They are listed below. Any current undergraduate or graduate student is welcome to apply. Incoming first-year students are also eligible.

If you are interested in joining The Observer’s editorial board, please use the form below to apply. We ask that each applicant submits a resume and a single cover letter—even if they are applying for multiple positions, which we welcome. Resumes should be approximately one page long and cover letters should not exceed 400 words. In your cover letter, please explain why you want the position, detail how your experiences would help you succeed and mention any ideas you have for the position, itself, or The Observer, as a whole.

Thank you for your interest in The Observer. If you have any further questions, please email
