PsyPost.org -- a fast-growing science news website -- is looking for skilled writers with a good grasp on psychology and similar subjects to news articles for $20 per article. The applicant must be well-versed in psychological theories, scientific research methods, and statistics.
Your byline will be published with the article. This job is a great way to build your portfolio if you're looking to break into the journalism industry and become a science writer.
The ideal candidate is extremely familiar with psychology research and has some experience writing Associated Press-style news articles.
Upon being awarded the job you will be assigned a study to cover. In about 400 words, clearly summarize a single study for a general audience. Avoid technical language and provide brief explanations or definitions of concepts the general public might not understand. Assume the reader knows nothing about psychology.
The article should explain the primary findings of the study and their broader implications, along with information about how the study was conducted.
The article should be written as an objective overview of the research. Articles containing personal (first-person) language and subjective opinions will not be accepted.
If your first article is what we're looking for, you'll have the opportunity to write more. (Up to five per week.)
If you are hired, you will need to submit a professional-looking photo and a 2-3 sentence bio for our contributors page.
