Volcano news editor(s):
We are looking for volunteers and freelancers wanting to help us out with keeping up with volcanic activity world-wide. Your involvement could be anything from a few hours per week upwards. It could involve only a single or a few specific volcanoes you enjoy monitoring in particular, or volcanic activity all over the world, or specific topics in volcanology in general.
We'd expect from you:
- you have some background and a genuine interest in volcanoes and volcanology
- you enjoy writing about it in an easy-to-understand but scientifically correct (non-sensationalist) way, preferably in non-academic language
- you are familiar with looking up relevant primary sources of information (e.g. reports by volcano observatories, local newspapers etc)
- you like digging for news and information
- you are familiar with researching / posting / sharing on social media
- have basic knowledge about HTML
- you're willing to a possible long-term freelance cooperation with us
We offer you:
Unfortunately, we have only a very small budget and cannot offer anything like a normal salary to hire editors to write for us - the direct income from this is way too small. However, on the long term, you we can offer you:
- recognition as part of our news team
- gain experience with web publishing, database, HTML and CMS technology
- a small re-numeration to be discussed after we establish some routine together
