We're looking forrecent college graduateswho are media savvy, committed to fighting misinformation, can articulate well-formed opinions, and complete meticulous technical tasks.

Your primary mission will be to evaluate, optimize, and publish science/technology-oriented talks put forward by the TEDx community.This requires a scrupulous and discerning eye. This also requires a methodical and highly organized approach to work.Globally, the TEDx initiative produces 500+ talks every week; we need smart people to watch each one to ensure it falls within established guidelines, as well as identify the best and most urgent, so we can help share those ideas with a wider public.

We are looking for someone with a specific focus, passion for, and deep knowledge of a field related to science. This could include, but is not limited to, artificial intelligence, health related sciences, astronomy, engineering, or environmental sciences. In addition to evaluating the credibility, novelty, and quality of scientific ideas, concepts, and innovations, you should be comfortable discerning ideas worth spreading from those that need further peer review.

 

Requirements:

  • You must be able to work 5 full days (40 hrs) per week, 10-6pm EST

  • You must be fluent in English
