Business Insider's science and health 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 write about dead (and exploding) whales?
- Are you obsessed with diet and nutrition news?
If you answered yes to one or more of the above, please apply to join the Business Insider science and health 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. We will have you producing as much as you possibly can in no time.
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, in a science communication graduate program, or are active on social media — but it could also mean you are a journalism student or recent graduate passionate about science.
Business Insider is an independent go-getter's dream. Important skills include: 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 useful, too.
We are looking for someone who loves science, and a self-described nerd would fit the bill nicely.
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.
