The ABIS Group currently is seeking exceptional individuals to join the team as assistant news brief editors. Candidates should have an excellent academic record; a strong interest in health care, science, or business; and the ability to juggle multiple tasks. Summer positions are also available.
Assistant news brief editors research, write and edit headlines and abstracts for a collection of daily online newsletters under deadline.

Work or internship experience as a journalist, copywriter or editor is a plus, but not required.
