Science Fall Editorial Intern
Editorial | New York, NY
Business Insider's science team is looking for a full-time paid editorial intern to join us for the Fall.
Here's a quick test to see if you qualify:
- Do SpaceX launches get your heart pumping?
- Do you like to talk about dead whales?
- Do you want a jet pack?
If so, you should probably apply to join the Business Insider science team as our Fall editorial intern.
Our science vertical (check it out at Businessinsider.com/science) covers everything from the latest medical discoveries and weird animal videos to space ships and the changing climate. As our intern, you'll write blog posts and feature-length articles that you've pitched or been assigned.
No running out for coffee here — we have our own coffee, right in the office, all you can drink.
Other perks? We have lots of free snacks, and a ping-pong table where we hold quarterly tournaments.
When it comes to qualifications, we want someone who is passionate about a career in science journalism. That could mean you've been writing a personal science blog about your work in the lab or are active on social media but it could also mean you are a journalist who is passionate about science.
Also important: copy-editing skills, an attention to detail, and light HTML and Photoshop experience. Knowledge of social media and previous writing experience in a quick-turn-around environment are both useful, too.
We are looking for someone who loves science, and a self-described nerd would fit the bill nicely.
Please apply here with your resume, cover letter and three writing clips.
And, please note: this internship requires that you work in our Manhattan office at least three days a week, though we would love someone who could come in every day.
