Cochrane Australia – Journalism internship

Cochrane Australia – Journalism internship (podcast producer)

An opportunity exists for a journalism student with strong journalism and audio editing skills to work on a new podcast by Cochrane Australia.  Cochrane is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that sits within Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine. It is an active part of a global collaborative network, with over 3,000 local researchers, clinicians and patient advocates who synthesise and analyse the latest health research.

The new podcast, hosted by acclaimed journalist and public health researcher Dr. Ray Moynihan, will tackle the big questions in health through compelling conversations with leading researchers, thinkers, writers and health professionals from around the globe.

The intern will need to be able to work alone and meet strict deadlines.  She or he will be responsible for, or assist in a range of tasks including:

  • Editing, mastering and uploading podcasts for distribution
  • Studio recording (in MFJ radio studios)
  • The selection of theme music and production of stings and idents
  • Social media posting
  • Website maintenance
  • Associated administrative tasks

This internship is for a journalism student (Masters level preferred but not essential) with strong audio recording and editing skills.  An interest in health and science is desirable.

Start date:  Semester 2 (as soon as possible)
