Plympton is seeking a handful of Literary Fellows to assist with curating and designing a collection of fiction and nonfiction shorts for the New York Public Library's permanent digital collection. We're looking for literature-lovers and avid readers, especially readers excited about short-form works. Diverse reading tastes are highly encouraged. This is an excellent paid opportunity for anybody looking to jump-start a career in publishing.

Work will begin at the start of 2017 and will continue into summer. Fellows work remotely and hours are flexible, though there will likely be varying levels of work and time commitment depending on the phase of the project. The responsibilities will naturally be reading-based: searching for noteworthy shorts, close-reading pieces with an eye for the collection as a whole, and collaborating with other Literary Fellows throughout the curation process.

If you want to participate in the collection but don't necessarily want to commit to in-depth reading, you're welcome to suggest stories and nonfiction pieces you would like to see permanently preserved at the NYPL. Shoot us a message at hello@plympton.com!
The new Science Studios at Pioneer Works, a center for art, experimentation, music, and now science in Red Hook, Brooklyn, brings in world renowned scientists for large audiences in live spirited conversations, such as the Scientific Controversies series. Scientists also visit the science studios for targeted hand-selected workshops on Astrophysics, Mathematics, Genetics, and other forefront scientific fields.

We are looking for a New York-based creative producer for a series of science-themed podcasts and media projects in collaboration with Pioneer Works's director of science, the cosmologist and author Janna Levin. Significant content has already been recorded and awaits creative structure.

The position is for a contractor at the moment, but could well become a full-time permanent position, and pay is competitive.
We are looking for a producer with original vision who is excited about the untapped creative potential for science-themed content. 

Preferred qualifications:
• 5-7 years experience in the audio production space, with an emphasis on productions other than two-ways.
• Soup-to-nuts experience from conceiving to producing to launching a narrative audio program.
• Experience with sound design, though does not need to be a sound designer.
