If you watch Eons, you know how we talk to people: with intelligence, clarity, hopefully a little wit, and an abiding sense of wonder about the universe.
Applicants should have an academic background in biology/paleontology/natural history, and demonstrated experience writing about it for a popular, non-academic audience.
Experience in and understanding of online media and YouTube would also be wonderful. An awareness of both why people click on things and how to write things that aren't mindless clickbait are preferred.
Responsibilities include assigning and editing scripts, rigorous fact checking, generating pitches, and being thoughtful and kind.
Your writing must be:
--100% bullet-proof and fact-checked accurate;--completely freaking fascinating;--entertaining, by which we mean “witty” more than just “funny”; and--passionate about imparting hard science to humanity in a way that is both educational and engaging.
If your experience hits these marks, then prove it!
