Geosciences, Energy, Engineering Writer

Are you a geosciences, energy or engineering expert able to translate complex technical research into digestible copy for the lay public? If so, we need you!

As a major STM publisher we are looking to get our research covered in the oil and gas industry’s trade publications. In order to do so we seek an experienced writer who can translate 5-10 abstracts from journal articles into pithy, one-to-two sentence headlines for this press outreach effort.

You must understand a range of disciplines from fuel technology, to extraction engineering and sometimes policy. Sample articles include:

• Microstructure characteristics during hydrate formation and dissociation revealed by X-ray tomographic microscopy (

• How to Include Ignorance into Hydrocarbon-Resource Assessments? A Case Study Applied to the Presence of Source Rock at the Argentine Deep Water Margin (

• Promising Aspects of Heavy Oil and Native Asphalt Conversion Under Field Conditions (

If successful, there will be regular work for this ongoing project. Rate is negotiable and commensurate with similar writing assignments.
