Science Intern, Inverse

New York, NY
Editorial – Inverse
Internship
We are seeking a journalist with a background in the sciences, but curiosity and a love of storytelling are your most important assets. 

At Inverse, we take science seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We privilege great storytelling, original reporting, and unexpected angles on the news. Our readers are smart, young, and ready to learn something new about their world and themselves — we need a reporter who can explain hard science for a mass audience with authority (and a sense of humor).

This is a paid position. School credit isn’t a requirement for the internship

Responsibilities

    • The internship lasts for three months from your first day
    • Hours of work are 9.30 a.m. - 5.30 p.m. Monday through Friday
    •  Interns are based in our New York office
    • Pitch one story idea by 9 a.m. every weekday
    • Participate in daily 10 a.m. pitch meeting
    • Write three headlines for each story
    • Assist in editorial operations (research or project execution)

Requirements

    • Expect to write a story every day — you will learn how to do your own reporting, write quickly and with style, and craft narratives that engage a large and diverse audience in hard-to-grasp concepts
    •  You will write about a range of science topics, including space, physics, chemistry, genetics and the environment
    •  Depending on progress, a feature may be assigned at the end of the internship
