Biotech Daily: intern or cadet journalist wanted

  

Final year or recent journalism graduate wanted for permanent

part-time work editing ASX announcements for Biotech Daily.

 
 
Biotech Daily translates medical and finance jargon into plain English.
 
The industry journal-of-record reports primarily on the ASX-listed biotech stocks (not including agriculture or veterinary) and we use an almost standard AP House Style, with a Macquarie Dictionary mix of US and UK spellings.
 
I'm looking for a Journalism graduate (or final year student) who wants to work in serious hard news daily journalism, which includes a fair amount of “template” rote work, but also requires the eagle eye of an investigative journalist to “spot the disinformation”, and to strict daily deadlines.
 
There is scope for real first-hand reporting and potentially interview features, but the main game is covering the waterfront of the ASX. We also report on research institutes and regulatory matters. While an understanding of anatomy and physiology might help, the ability to use Google is probably more important. MUST be able to add up and subtract or use a calculator.
 
According to the MEAA, the going rate for a cadet is $106/day, and I would expect a brief training period (one or two days) to ensure the candidate could do the work and that would be the pay rate for at least one day a week, possibly more.
 
As we head into reporting season this week, if a suitable person emerged, they could expect two or three days (or combination of half days) a week, so it could suit a final year student, pending timetable clashes.
 
Work hours can be flexible but training would be in the morning and work shifts in the afternoon. Editing can be done remotely or in the Biotech Daily office. Modem, wifi, tea, coffee and biscuits provided.
 
Applicants must be as keen as mustard and be able to find the office without directions.
