Forensic Science Writing Opportunity

By Dplylemd

Want to learn to write for scientific publications? My friends at The Forensic Panel are offering an internship that will teach you the skills you need while you research, write, edit, and footnote forensic science articles. Here is the info from Jada Stewart:

Ever imagined the cutting-edge of forensic psychiatry in the real world – from a writer’s perspective? A practice best known for its role at the heart of some of the most complex and sensitive cases in America today, The Forensic Panel is also involved in a range of other cutting edge forensic science activities as well. Writing for scientific and general audiences ranging from ABC News.com to blogs on the most depraved crimes, The Forensic Panel and its Chairman, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Michael Welner, are always probing the next frontiers. Many don’t know that they host a highly sought after internship as well – which they are now developing specifically for writers interested in forensic science, crime, and law.

Forensic Science Writing Opportunity

The Forensic Panel is a New York-based multi-specialty forensic science practice covers psychology, psychiatry, toxicology, pathology and medical science. It’s pioneering research, The Depravity Standard, has far reaching implications for public policy. We featured it at last years Thriller Fest, hosting its developer, Dr. Welner in front of an audience of thriller writers who spend their every day with the depraved. The research is now studying actual murder cases from the files of jurisdictions around the United States, as it puts finishing touches on an evidence-based standard to define evil crimes.

The Depravity Standard research has spawned Dr. Welner’s latest initiative – to inventory everyday evil, in order to inspire clinician psychotherapists and psychiatrists to take the initiative to eliminate the evil choices others make in the everyday.

The high profile, multifaceted cases on which The Forensic Panel consults and the research that the practice spearheads lend to challenging writing opportunities on well-circulated platforms. Writing opportunities range from editing and researching for reports on cases, articles on cases and forensic science topics for general news interest, blog articles on the Depravity Standard and other forensic sciences, synthesizing scientific or legal manuscripts and creating press releases.

For those who are eager to integrate their writing skills into an exciting and richly informative environment, The Forensic Panel offers a Forensic Science Internship Program. Individuals within the program participate in writing, researching, editing and footnoting receiving hands on and fascinating experiences transferrable to future careers in fields ranging from fiction writing to investigative journalism – or even a career in the forensic sciences and academics. Furthermore, the opportunity provides interns with the platform to hone and develop their research/investigative skills – essential skills in the field of forensic writing.

Our remote/distant writing positions offer flexible schedules, allowing responsible individuals to complete tasks with supervision through telephone and email. Interns will learn various stages of the forensic science expert’s contributions in the legal process while completing a variety of duties involving extensive research and creative writing.

This is an un-paid internship opportunity in which individuals would have access to a multitude of resources while receiving training and supervision. The ideal candidate has a strong background in English, Journalism, Science or Law, a feeling for new media, and a passion for writing and research.
