The latest on journalism job openings

Board member Joe Schneider assembled the latest journalism jobs and internship postings.

Academia.edu
Science Writer
San Francisco
Application deadline: None
Posted: November 30, 2012

New Media posting

Academia.edu is a social platform for academics to share research papers. Its
mission is to accelerate the world’s research.

Many people believe that science is too closed, and too slow. We are trying to
change that. Almost two million academics have joined Academia.edu, and around
3,500 are joining each day.

Academia.edu is changing the way research is done, and these changes show up in
anecdotes from users. Some academics connect and end up collaborating on a
paper. Others find that being on Academia.edu increases their chances of getting
a job or grant. The other day a professor on Academia.edu got flown out to New
York to appear in a documentary “I am Bruce Lee”.

We are looking for a writer to capture these story gems from our community, and
write up the stories on our blog. These are stories about how technology is
changing the way research is being done. We often tell the story of
Academia.edu’s impact through metrics: almost 2 million users, more than 4
million monthly unique visitors, 1.6 million papers uploaded etc.

At Original9 Media, we help brands develop and deliver powerful original content
programs for any audience. Our editorial efforts span a wide range of business
and technology topics and include everything from daily blogs and Web

candidate is an aspiring writer or editor who is eager to research and write
original content; assist with Web production, photo research, and social media
promotion; pitch blog ideas and contribute to editorial brainstorming; and
conduct and write up interviews with business executives and influencers. This
position is a great opportunity for a recent graduate or current student in a
graduate program in online journalism and/or creative writing looking to get

In the Fray
Call for Submissions
countrywide
Application deadline: Dec. 15, 2012
Posted: November 27, 2012

New Media posting

Every one of us has had a rival at one point in our lives: siblings,
classmates, coworkers, even strangers. At a national level, we’ve just
witnessed a bitterly fought U.S. presidential election, but some of
the most iconic rivalries have little to do with politics. Yankees and the Red
Sox. Microsoft and Apple. Leno and Letterman.

This month, In The Fray wants your stories of rivalries. Tell us about the
spirit of competition and how these experiences led to an unexpected revelation.
Show us the ways that rivalries make people better — and the ways they make
people worse. As usual, we are open to stories that deal with the topic broadly
construed, and in a
variety of approaches: profiles, interviews, reportage, personal essays, op-eds,
travel writing, photo essays, artwork, videos, multimedia projects, and review
essays of books, film, music, and art.
