Psychology Today has an excellent opportunity for a few smart and talented editorial interns at our office in New York. We are a small staff, so you’ll be a key member of the team.

Other duties include proofreading print and online copy, working closely with staff on story research and special projects, helping to manage editorial content on our website, and occasional transcription and light clerical work.

Journalism experience and an interest in human behavior required. Background in psychology and/or experience writing science stories not mandatory, but a major plus. Must be able to juggle several tasks at once and work autonomously.

The position runs September through December, 2 days a week.
