Inverse is looking for an Associate Science Editor to develop story ideas, edit copy, coach writers, & generally execute the vision of the science editor for this vital part of Inverse.

The ideal candidate will have at least four years of experience editing mass-appeal stories about some or all of the following topics, from a scientific point of view: space, nature, ancient humans, robots, artificial intelligence, & the mind & body. 

The candidate need not have a packed Rolodex of sources, but should have experience in finding the right information to properly flesh out a report so it has more context & perspective.

Curiosity, critical thinking skills, & a keen understanding of the difference between cause & correlation are the important assets for this editor, who will work with a team of talented science writers to do their best work yet.

The best person for the job is adept at seeing the big picture within a story, be it one about a new study on the rainforests, a NASA discovery, or why a visual internet meme tickles our brains so much. A believer in the nut graf, an advocate for originality, a lover of curious facts, & an enemy of wishy-washing language is the person we need.

The ideal editor is also a savvy internet operator who values story packaging, & knows that in order to build a loyal engaged audience, every story needs to be stunning in its own way - whether it be a clever headline, a compelling header image, or a brilliant union of the two. 

While Inverse's office is based in New York City, this position can be remote.

To apply, send five recent/relevant clips, your resume, & a brief cover letter.
