As part of ER, interns will be expected to write, edit, and proofread new content for the website, liaise with authors, and publicise ER through social media, as well as offering general administrative support to the editorial team. Interns will receive feedback and mentoring on their writing and editorial work.

You must have excellent attention to detail, strong organisational skills, and be comfortable with independent, project-based work. Applicants should be fully proficient in MS Office. Experience with social media, WordPress, etc. beneficial, but not essential. All disciplines and backgrounds welcome, but we would particularly encourage applications from final year undergraduate and postgraduate students.
