Science Journalism Student Internships
Dahlitz Media operates a number of platforms producing content for the science and technology fields. With a social reach of 80K and growing, we are becoming established as a niche provider of content, especially in the mental health arena.
We are now offering students of science journalism an outlet for writing to a large audience while building a portfolio of published material, on an internship or casual basis as part of a tertiary course. Students have the opportunity to work in an online team environment under the direction of a managing editor and editor-in-chief. This is an opportunity for students only as part of their university or college education. We welcome freelance science journalists to pitch their story ideas to the Editor-in-Chief – see below.
The platforms that deliver science journalism are:
