Position: News Intern
Location: Washington, DC or New York City – Hybrid working model
Nature’s news team seeks a science reporter for a January-June 2024 Internship – a paid, full-time writing position based in our Washington DC or New York City offices (on a hybrid model). Our interns are treated like staff reporters. They cover cutting-edge science, as well as activities at US science agencies. And they travel locally for stories as appropriate and write for both the website and print magazine. Initially, interns will be assigned stories, but ideally, will eventually pitch their own.
Although they primarily cover news, they will have the opportunity to write features. Top candidates will have a strong background in both science and journalism and should be enthusiastic about writing stories for an audience of researchers, administrators, and decision-makers. Past interns have gone on to staff positions at Carbon Brief, Chemical & Engineering News, Gizmodo, Nature, and Science News. News interns will receive an hourly wage of $19.00.
- Has a university degree in a relevant subject.
- Background in science is preferred, but not required (though applicants who have published science journalism articles previously or completed a science writing/journalism program will be weighted more heavily).
- Capable of working in a deadline-driven environment.
- Contributes to an inclusive, collegial work environment.
To apply, please submit a cover letter telling us what you’ll bring to the Nature Newsroom and what topics you would want to cover, a resume, and 3-5 samples of published journalism that you have written (please submit your clips along with your resume as a single PDF – please do not just submit links for the clips). Samples should include journalism clips – please do not send scientific papers or other technical writing. Applicants must have an existing right to live and work in the United States.
Applications are due by September 18. Early applications are encouraged.
The salary offer may vary based on work experience, education, and skill level. The US salary range does not align with the salary ranges in other countries when converted to the currency of that country.
