Editorial Intern, UndertheMicroscope.com
Part-time internship, NYC (mostly remote)
UndertheMicroscope.com, a web site for young women in science, invites applicants for a part-time Fall editorial internship. Interns will research, write, and sometimes edit blog posts, interviews, resources, and user-generated content.
Applicants should have excellent research and writing skills, be meticulous about grammar and spelling, feel comfortable interviewing scientists about their lives and work, and have some interest and background in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) subjects. Blogging experience or a major/degree in science is desirable but not required.
Interns will work approximately 5-7 hours per week, mostly remotely.
Applicants based outside of New York are encouraged to apply, but must demonstrate a strong work ethic.
Editorial internships are unpaid but credit may be arranged with your university.
We are accepting applications on a rolling basis with an opportunity to begin as early as September 2012. Please reply as soon as possible with your resume, a statement of interest, and a writing sample (blogs acceptable) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “INTERNSHIP” in your subject line.
