Intern With C&EN

Chemical & Engineering News, the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, seeks a science-writing intern to spend six months with us.

C&EN reports current events in the chemical enterprise, including recent advances in research, education, industry, funding, and regulatory policy. C&EN reaches all 161,000 members of the ACS each week, and its online edition receives more than 14 million page views per year.

The candidate should be a highly motivated student or recent graduate with demonstrated interest in science writing and at least a bachelor's degree in chemistry or a related field. The intern will have a chance to write bylined news and feature stories for publication in C&EN and to generate multimedia and other content for C&EN Online. The intern will also assist with developing C&EN's social media presence.

During their six month stint, the intern is expected to work for C&EN full time (40 hours/wk) and will be paid $20.50/hr. The intern ideally will be based in our Washington, DC, headquarters; however, exceptional candidates unable to relocate may be considered. Starting and ending dates are flexible.
