Are you comfortable with the concepts of both gene editing and story editing? If so, we want to let you know that we’re currently accepting applications for our science writing internship.
The intern will be closely involved in the editorial process and write news articles and briefs. This is not a paper-pushing internship! The person selected for the position will be reporting stories and working on editorial content full-time, including this very blog.
Applicants should have completed one year in a graduate program in journalism or have equivalent work experience in journalism. Additionally, a strong understanding of biology and current issues in medicine is required. This four-month, paid internship will start in May or June and be based in New York City or Boston.
The deadline for applications is 10 March 2013.
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Nature Medicine news internship” in the subject line and include 1) a cover letter, 2) your resume and 3) three published writing clips.
