It’s a red-letter week for science writers looking for one of the precious few in-house jobs going in Australia in the area of science writing and science journalism; there are not one but two jobs advertised in the past week.
The first is the position of environment reporter at The Guardian in Sydney, with applications due March 22, 2018. According to the job advertisement, the 12-month, full-time position would suit an experienced reporter with “a proven ability to generate exclusives and must-read coverage at a national level in a complex specialist area”. More details are available here.
The second is media and content manager for UNSW’s science, medicine and engineering faculties, which will involve leading the team responsible for multimedia content for these faculties. Applications are due by the 26 March 2018, and details are available here.
