there, SciNote reader!
Do you want to become a member of
the SciNote team and help us bring science to readers like you? Well, now is
your chance! SciNote is looking for interested, enthusiastic individuals to join our Editorial Staff. So if you love thinking about sentences as much as
you love reading about science, this could be just the position for you. As an
Editor, you will be responsible for reviewing posts written by our writing staff (Discoverers, Experts, Writers) and
making sure that they are ready to be published here on Tumblr and on
scinote.org/blog. It will be your job to work with our writing staff to make sure
that content is clear, precise, and accessible before it is posted to our blog – all while letting each writer’s unique approach
and voice shine through your edits.
The ideal applicant would have some
background both in science and in editing or writing, along with a clear
enthusiasm for communicating science to a general audience. I have a bunch of editing experience but not
much of a science background, I hear you saying. Can I still apply? Of course you can! Working with language will be
your primary responsibility. What if I’m
a scientist that hasn’t done very much editing[/writing], but I love science
and want to help tell the world about it? If you noticed that I should have
said “who” instead of “that” in the last sentence, you should stop worrying and
Interested applicants should go to http://www.scinote.org/staff-application.html. The application will involve
downloading a sample draft so that you can show us what kinds of edits that you
would make to it. If this is a problem, or if you have any other questions
about the position, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reblog to help us spread the word to any of your followers who may be interested!
