INSIDER is hiring a paid editorial fellow to write about weather.

The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams & become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, & by the end of six months are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers. For more information on the Insider Fellowship Program, see here.

This fellow on our news team will write about weather in the unique INSIDER style. Fellows spend their time doing meaningful work: researching, writing, pitching & producing features - even breaking news if the timing is right. They have the opportunity to contribute to stories like Before-and-after photos show Hurricane Michael's catastrophic destruction in Florida, A NOAA hurricane hunter reveals what it's like to fly into a big storm like Hurricane Michael, & At least 9 people have died in Hurricane Florence, & nearly 1 million are without power. This fellow will cover the biggest weather stories of the day, be the go-to person for providing coverage around big events like hurricanes or floods, do explainers on viral weather stories, write news-you-can-use posts, & put together evergreen visual features on natural phenomena.

This is an hourly paid fellowship based out of our New York office. Fellows are encouraged to work 40 hours a week, & fellowships run for six months. Start date for this position will be in September.

INSIDER is great journalism about what passionate people actually want to know. That's everything from news to food, celebrity to science, politics to sports & all the rest. It's smart. It's fearless. It's fun. We push the boundaries of digital storytelling. Our mission is to inform & inspire.
