INTERNSHIPS

PRINT/DIGITAL INTERNSHIP


Here at Popular Science, we love geeking out about breakthrough research, testing the latest tech gadgets, and finding compelling science angles on mainstream topics. And to help us in this epic (and fun!) quest, PopSci hires interns throughout the year, to work with us in our offices in New York City.


The position is full- (or almost full-) time for roughly 12 weeks, though we're flexible on exact dates. Primary duties encompass work for both the print magazine and Popsci.com. That includes writing news stories, front-of-book pieces, sidebars, and blog posts as well as various researching and reporting projects. When time and resources allow, interns may also shoot and edit video, make animations, work on interactive graphics, do web production, help with social media, and more. 


The relatively small staff and open atmosphere at Popular Science expose interns to all parts of the magazine-making and website-running processes. We are big fans of self-starters, so interns are encouraged to pitch ideas and chase down their own work from editors. You can attend photo shoots, sit in on pitch meetings, attend media-only events, and more. If you want to get involved with something, we can usually make it happen! And we won’t ask you to get us coffee. Though we may request that you participate in the occasional Nerf gun fight or 3D-printed candy taste test. 


Ideal intern candidates have a passion for science and/or consumer technology, as well as a demonstrated interest in magazine, online, and/or multimedia journalism.


Applicants must be able to receive academic credit for the internship. Summer applications should be received by March 1, and a decision will be made by April 1. Applications for the fall are due July 1. Other quarters are accepted on a rolling basis. To apply, please send a one-page cover letter, one-page resume, and links to three to five writing samples by email to internships@popsci.com with with “Print/Web Intern” in the subject line. 


PROJECTS INTERNSHIP


Do you love tinkering with DIY projects? Think all technology should be open-source? Do you dream of fighting robots and racing drones? Then you should apply to be the Popular Science projects intern.

The position is full or almost-full time for roughly 12 weeks (we're flexible on exact dates). Primary duties include research and reporting for the Manual section of the magazine and covering the maker movement and DIY for the website by writing news stories, blog posts, and video scripts.


The relatively small staff and open atmosphere at Popular Science expose interns to all parts of the magazine-making process, and interns are encouraged to pitch ideas and chase down their own work. Unlike the typical desk-bound intern, the projects intern will also have the opportunity to play with maker toys and build the projects s/he writes about.


Ideal candidates have a passion for science—and applying it to hands-on projects—as well as a demonstrated interest in magazine journalism. Experience with soldering, Arduino, and other maker tools is a bonus, but not required. What's more important is a willingness to dive in and get your hands dirty—to learn how to program a Raspberry Pi, figure out which kind of glue works best, or dig through pages of Instructables to find the most impressive projects.


Applicants must be able to receive academic credit for the internship. Summer applications should be received by March 1, and a decision will be made by April 1. Applications for the fall are due July 1. Other quarters are accepted on a rolling basis. To apply, please send a one-page cover letter, one-page resume, and links to three to five writing samples by email to internships@popsci.com with “Projects Intern” in the subject line.

The position is full or almost-full time for roughly 12 weeks (we're flexible on exact dates). Primary duties include researching and writing scripts, producing videos in conjunction with our writers and edit staff, shooting and/or finding appropriate footage, and tracking Internet trends in the areas we cover.


The relatively small staff and open atmosphere at Popular Science expose interns to all parts of the editorial process, and interns are encouraged to pitch ideas and create their own content.
