Editorial | New York, NY | Full Time
Business Insider's science and health team is looking for a full-time science reporter to join our team.
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?
Our science vertical (check it out at Businessinsider.com/science) is expanding and we're looking for someone to round out our team and help us add personality, fun, and intelligence to our science reporting.
We cover everything from the latest weird animal finds and SpaceX launches to delving into dark matter and our Earth's changing climate. Our writing is fun, accessible, and geared toward regular readers — no writing for scientists here. Our science writer will need to be able to find the latest science news before everyone else, concisely describe the intricacies of a big story, and understand why a story is important in the bigger scheme of things.
Having an attention to detail and being an efficient worker in a quick-turn-around environment are both skills needed for this job. Also important: copy-editing skills, being active on social media, and light HTML and Photoshop experience. Someone who loves science, and is a self-described nerd would fit the bill nicely.
Please submit your resume, and three writing clips along with your cover letter. And, please note: this position requires that you work in our Manhattan headquarters full time. We are preferably looking for someone with a couple of years experience who can work independently.
Competitive compensation and benefits package offered. Salary dependent on experience.
