One of the nation’s top academic medical centers is growing their team of medical/scientific editors to manage content for their web properties. If you are an experienced writer with an innate knowledge of advanced medical and scientific lingo and an understanding of how users navigate the digital realm as they search for information, read on. For this just might be that elusive fulltime gig where you can put these chops to good use.
Our client’s name often shows up next to or near the words ‘prestigious’ and ‘premier.’ This is a leading medical center with national reach, providing care and conducting research at several different facilities all over New York. As an editor on the content team, you’ll immediately jump into a relaunch of their med school’s website, editing and restructuring content to gel with the site redesign. It will be your job to make sure all digital content on the website meets the gold standard set by the pioneering work they do.
You will be responsible for a ton of copy, from descriptions of academic degrees and research programs to complex scientific topics and disciplines. Using an ‘authoritative yet welcoming’ editorial voice, the content will be more about presenting information with clarity, and less about marketing appeal. With this in mind, you will make sure that the work is done accurately and succinctly, making the trains run on time for the big redesign and beyond
