Science Writer

Duke University Durham, NC

We're looking for a colleague who knows a good story when they see it on page 12 of an obtuse academic paper. Having found that nugget of awesome, they need to be able to pull it out through tough interviews and shine it up with clear, accessible journalistic presentation. 

This science communicator should be prepared to enthusiastically geek out on a wide variety of topics, because we do -- regularly! Candidates with visual, video or social media chops are highly desirable. Please provide clips or URLs of published articles that tell science stories for non-experts. Published videos, multimedia and social media posts on science topics are a plus. This posting is entry-level (50-60k) but we can adjust for the right candidate.
