Would you like to work on your science writing skills without making a big commitment?
We are looking for a few writers for a faculty profile, from the field, and labscopes. Faculty profiles are 1,000 word Q&A’s with UC Berkeley faculty members whose work or experience intrigues you. From the fields are 1,000 word “slice of life” from your daily research. Finally, labscopes are short, 250 word descriptions of a research finding or focus from UC Berkeley accompanied by an engaging image. If you’re looking for a way to get started with science writing, labscopes are a great opportunity to get involved without making a big commitment. Take a look at our most recent issue here for examples, under the Labscopes heading.
Writers should be UC Berkeley grad students/postdocs or LBNL affiliates. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP if you’re interested—we’re happy to suggest ideas if you’re unsure what to write about.
