Science Blogger

Do you find yourself scouring social media, journals and media outlets for health scares to debunk, amazing science to bring to the public, and activist wrongs to right? If so, you may be the right fit for a part-time science blogging position at the Council.

This is a remote opportunity, working from anywhere in the U.S.; all you need is a science degree, and to already be writing 4-5 times per day for a sizable audience. Obviously, this is not for someone who might like to write if someone were willing to give them money to do so. Like playing guitar, you have to be doing it all the time for love before you’re going to be good enough to get paid for it. Please email detailed info to employment@acsh.org
