By Rhizome

Rhizome is looking for a fall editorial fellow and a fall program intern. Details below.

Editorial Fellow

Rhizome’s fall editorial fellowship is an opportunity for a writer (preferably at the graduate level) with a research background in the fields of contemporary art and technology to further develop professional skills. The fellow will work on research and writing for Rhizome’s blog and for the ongoing Net Art Anthology exhibition, as well as some editorial maintenance. 

The fellow will spend 50% of their time researching and writing articles, and 50% on related editorial tasks, including fact checking; proofreading; posting/formatting; social media; and administrative tasks.

Fellows will be paid for writing commissioned articles, but the position is otherwise unpaid. Academic credit may be arranged and is highly encouraged.

The editorial fellow must be based in New York City and available to commit to 12-16 hours of work per week for 3-4 months beginning in September. A flexible schedule is preferred, and partial remote working is possible. These hours include a daily email check.

Qualifications:

  • Strong writing, editing, and analytical skills, and a high internet literacy
  • High level of familiarity with contemporary art and technology
  • Demonstrated interest in net art and net art history
  • Strong copyediting and proofreading skills
  • Basic HTML/CSS skills

The program intern must be familiar with contemporary art and savvy with the web and new technologies. Demonstrated interest in and background knowledge of early-to-mid-2000s net art is a strong bonus.

This position is open to undergraduate or graduate students based in New York City or in Los Angeles. The position is unpaid, but academic credit may be arranged and is highly encouraged.

Interns will be paid for assistance at events.
