About ZME Science
ZME Science was established in the summer of 2007. Along the years, we’ve grown into a trusted and provocative source of science news and features, covering research and developments from all scientific fields. Our purpose has always been to bring you the best and latest information, while keeping it as simple as possible. We strive to make our articles accessible for everybody, regardless of their age, education and background, so that everyone can learn, stay informed, and develop as human beings.
We’re looking for someone who can work either part time or full time (students encouraged to apply). The program is highly flexible, but you need to be dedicated, willing to learn new things and adapt to the volatile environment that is the internet. We offer a non-formal work environment, but we take our work very seriously. We will provide a hands-on personal training, sharing our experience and what we’ve learned in over 7 years of running a science website.
Your mission will be to deliver quality content to our readers – especially news. Sometimes, we will provide you with the press releases and sources and you will sum them up and add your personal input. Other times, you will scour the internet for information yourself. In both cases, you will have to thoroughly understand what you’re writing about and explain it in a simple language.
You don’t need any knowledge in any particular scientific field. Any scientific background is a bonus, but curiosity and a thirst for knowledge are must-haves!
Does that sound interesting to you? If yes, then send an email at andrei [at] zmescience [dot] com, including two articles:
- a 400ish word news article about space. Whatever the topic may be, it has to be space-related. You can use Google News (www.google.com/news) to find your sources
- an over 600 word opinion article (as big as you’d like), on any scientific subject that’s interesting to you. It can be global warming, lasers, psychology… whatever! Just be sure to mention your sources, in both articles.
- If you decide to use images to illustrate the articles, these have to be Creative Commons or Public Domain.
If you have any questions or suggestions, send them out to the same email and I’ll get back to you.
