The Royal Society of Chemistry is looking for an intern to work as a science writer for our editorial office and gain experience working for our flagship publication Chemistry World.

The contractual base for this role is our Cambridge office, however we are currently embracing hybrid working, and therefore you will have the opportunity to work from home, as agreed with your line manager. Applicants should be aware that there is an expectation that employees will need to attend the office on their first and last day and mainly work from home as needed, in line with guidance.

This opportunity will provide a hands-on introduction to the editorial process, from writing and editing to page layout and printing and is available on a paid, full-time basis for eight weeks to finish before the end of November 2022, supported by the Marriott Bequest Trust.

We Are Looking For:

With an interest in science communication, you will demonstrate an enthusiasm for writing and will probably be coming to the end of, or will have recently completed, your chemical science degree or postgraduate course. If this sounds like you, please apply on-line before the end of our closing date.

In your application, please include your CV accompanied by a letter describing how you would benefit from the experience, as well as three short samples of your previously published written work, with an emphasis on popular science. If you don’t have any available samples, compose and include some of your own Chemistry World-style news pieces based on recent journal papers or current events.
