Graduate Science Writer

Are you a graduate student in a STEM field who is passionate about science communications and skilled at telling research stories to non-researchers? Then the Carbone Cancer Center is looking for you! We are hiring one graduate science writing intern. Our expectation is that you will contribute one story per month (10-15 hours) for our e-newsletter and other platforms (social media, donor communications, etc), as decided in partnership with the communications team. Your work is not limited to writing, either, as we have many options for multimedia content creation. You may be assigned stories, but will also be encouraged to pitch your own ideas. We cover all aspects of cancer research, from basic science to translational to clinical, and you will have opportunities to write about any and all of it.

To apply, please email a single PDF including a cover letter, your resume/CV and two non-technical writing samples to Sarah Perdue at We prefer these writing samples are examples of lay public research communications if you have them, but will accept other non-technical samples. Please direct any questions you have in advance of applying to Sarah.
