Reporting Intern

Full Time / Boston, MA / Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters

STAT is seeking a Reporting Intern to join its team of seasoned journalists and editors in daily newsgathering and writing.

Some of the tasks we’ll look for you to pitch in on:

      • Writing news stories, study stories, newsletter briefs, and original reported work
      • Doing research as part of a team with other reporters
      • Pitching story ideas off of the news
      • Production work like putting copy into CMS, finding photos, etc.

You should have prior journalism experience; familiarity with the worlds of science and medicine is desirable but not required.

This is a start-up publication, so flexibility, team spirit, and a willingness to innovate are essential. Also essential: Fidelity to bedrock journalistic values and a commitment to excellence.

The position will be full-time, paid, and based in our Boston headquarters.
