Our goal is to offer truly forward-looking, global content, designed for easy consumption across devices, in a sleek, visual style. We are looking for a medical and science writer. RESPONSIBILITIES: Comfortable and confident developing profiles, trend stories, data-driven articles and thought-pieces. We only do a handful of stories a day, so each piece needs to be a gem: relevant, well rounded and flavorful, with a clear “Why You Should Care” element. Most of all, we need the articles to be written in an engaging, colorful way.    

Ideal candidates are fluent in macro subjects (epidemics, "Obamacare" and ecology, for example), have great ideas for profiles of relatively unknown but influential experts (U.S. and international) in areas that might include psychology, Alzheimer's, autism or neuroscience, and are as comfortable writing about sex and polyamory as solutions for allergies. You have a flair for spotting trends months ahead of the pack and developing/shaping stories that vault OZY readers ahead. You also have a demonstrated ability to deliver engaging headlines and other smart packaging. You are passionate about delivering elite content, open to learning and love a fast-paced, always-on environment. We have high standards (our material also appears on USATODAY.com, NPR and other media outlets) so you must have a demonstrated ability to deliver consistently high-quality work. You must demonstrate ease and experience using CMS, ensuring your stories are beautifully presented to users.
