The Times is looking for an experienced, ambitious leader to run its Styles desk - arguably one of the most important culture and lifestyle editing jobs in American journalism. Styles coverage in particular and the culture and lifestyle report in general are vital to The Times. We have covered lifestyle and fashion since the days when reporters would follow buyers from stores around the country as they flocked to New York to look at the new lines, documenting its rise into an important driver of our economy. We have covered love and marriage, trends and movements, power dynamics and power gaps, the rise of Internet culture and how it has affected the young and the old. Styles is part of our history, and says much about the larger culture we cover.
