We are an online news and analysis website, and publish daily articles by experts from universities across the UK and Europe. Our stories are written for a general readership, and we aim to bridge the gap between academic knowledge and the public via a newsroom of editors.

- Able to digest complex ideas and translate these for a general audience
- Demonstrable editing skills from working with academic material or in journalism
- Excellent grasp of the English language
- Highly organised and able to juggle multiple tasks/stories
- Good diplomatic skills
