Pioneer Works encourages radical thinking across disciplines by providing practitioners a space to work, tools to create, and a platform to exchange ideas that are free and open to all. We are driven by the realization that humanity is facing unprecedented social, intellectual, and spiritual challenges; our programs explore new ways of facing those challenges by using the arts and sciences dynamically as both a lens and catalyst. When humanity comes together and combines the ideas and talents of many, we have the ability to engineer what once appeared to be impossible.

The Broadcast is a virtual experience in the likeness of Pioneer Works. Pioneer Works is dust and wood, cement and steel. The Broadcast by contrast is immaterial, an idea, a thought experiment, an aspiration. For years, that concept lived only in our minds as a cloud of electrical neural activity. Under the uncomfortable pressure of lockdown, the online magazine was published as a beta version in April 2020.  In May 2021, we launched a more fully-realized incarnation of this virtual extension of our physical campus, a cultural space for interdisciplinary discourse on Music, Technology, Science, and the Arts: Broadcast 2.0

We seek a science editor to join our team at The Broadcast, based at Pioneer Works, for a part-time position with an eye to rolling into a full-time position with benefits down the line. We place an emphasis on blue-skies and evergreen, big ideas across the sciences. The editor should feel aligned with our motto that “Science is Part of Culture,” as well as possess abilities in the art of journalism, and non-fiction more generally. The successful candidate would work closely with the editor-in-chief, the astrophysicist and author Janna Levin, as well as editors from across disciplines.

Pay is commensurate with experience.
