We’re looking for a talented science writer/editor to join our staff for six months, with the possibility of extension.

Physics is seeking an Assistant Editor to cover a temporary leave of absence in the spring of 2014. The position is ideally suited for someone who wants to start a career in science communication or publishing. Experienced writers/editors are also encouraged to apply, as the position may become long-term.

The position will be based at the Editorial Office in Ridge, NY, but partial telecommuting could be arranged from New York, Washington, DC, or several other locations.

The full job description and details on how to apply are here.
