Applications are still open for the roles below, no prior experience is necessary! To apply enquire at [email protected] or message us on Facebook.


– SUB-EDITORS – Sub-editing is a great role for those starting out in student journalism, or for those with less time on their hands. As a sub-editor, you’ll be editing and potentially writing articles for the magazine and the website, working with writers to develop pitched pieces. We are looking for multiple sub-editors for a strong editorial team!

– COMMENT, NEWS and WEB EDITORS – As section editors, you’ll be commissioning, editing, and sometimes writing the articles for our magazine and website. You’ll be working with writers to develop pitched pieces and edit submissions. The print editor oversees the editing process of the magazine until its publication, which includes coordination of our sub-editors and authors. Our comment editor commissions exciting opinion pieces, drawing on a diverse range of perspectives and producing more in-depth articles covering current affairs in science. The web editor manages the OxSci website. For senior editorial positions, previous editorial experience (for example as a sub-editor) is recommended; experience with WordPress is appreciated but not required.

– MARKETING DIRECTOR – The Marketing Director manages OxSci’s Facebook and Twitter, as well as our mailing list, keeping our followers informed and engaged about our writing and events. We’re committed to growing our digital presence at Oxford and beyond, so this role suits anyone with strong awareness and experience with social media.

– BUSINESS DIRECTOR – The business team of the Oxford Scientist is directly lead by our publishers, OSPL (Oxford Student Publications Limited), and responsible for advertising and selling subscriptions, for liaising with companies for advertising contracts and overall for finding ways of generating revenue for the publication. Any business experience is appreciated but at the same time this is a fantastic role to learn about the business side of publishing student journalism!
