The time commitment for layout editor is roughly 10-12 hours a week, mostly on Wednesday nights. The layout editor will receive a stipend of $550 per semester.

Duties include:
- recruiting, managing and giving assignments to photographers
- laying out photo essay and other pages as needed
- approving pages on layout night
- helping section editors use InDesign and improve the design of their pages
- meeting semi-regularly with the Editorial Board

The layout editor is hired for a full academic year. Exceptions for off-campus interims, semesters abroad or graduating early are sometimes granted by Chimes leadership.

Note: if you wish to apply to be a section editor, multimedia editor or head copy editor, you need to fill out those applications separately (though you may reuse answers and work samples).
