Summer Intern, 2017
Sky & Telescope, the world-renowned astronomy magazine, is accepting applications for its summer editorial internship. Interns work onsite with the S&T staff in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where they help produce content for both the magazine and S&T’s website, www.skyandtelescope.com. Work may include writing and editing news or stargazing stories, producing multimedia content, or pursuing other independent projects, according to interns’ skills and interests. Interns will also be steeped in the day-to-day efforts that go into publishing a monthly magazine.
Ideal applicants will have a background in professional or amateur astronomy and a demonstrated ability to explain science with accuracy and approachability. Although directly mentored by editors, interns operate as full-fledged staff members, so a strong work ethic and willingness to take initiative are must-haves. Timing and extent of the internship are negotiable, but a minimum 10-weeks’ commitment is recommended. The internship is paid, but interns must arrange their own housing.
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, up to three writing samples, and contact information for two references to Editor in Chief Peter Tyson at editors_at_skyandtelescope.com.
Application Deadline: March 7th
Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S.
