Journalism Jobs & Internships
INSIDER editorial intern, science
INSIDER is hiring a paid editorial intern to write about science from our San Francisco office, beginning immediately.
From covering space news and rocket launches to reporting on the environment and archaeology, this internship offers a unique opportunity to cover a variety of science topics in the INSIDER style. Our team covers science through stories like “China releases detailed 360-degree photo from the first mission to land on the far side of the moon” and “Congress just got a new bumper crop of scientists. Meet the 11 new science whizzes on Capitol Hill.” Science interns spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching, and producing visual features — even breaking news if the timing is right.
INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That’s everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports and all the rest. It’s smart. It’s fearless. It’s fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform and inspire.
If this sounds like your dream job, APPLY HERE with a resume and cover letter telling us why you want to be our science intern.
