We are looking for enthusiastic students to join the “Astrobites en Español” team.
Requirements: Preferably master or PhD students in physics or astronomy, fluent in Spanish and English. We ask you to submit:
- One “astrobito” with original content in Spanish (for example, something like this). You should choose a paper that appeared on astro-ph in the last three months and summarise it at an appropriate level for undergraduate students. We ask you that it is not in your specific area of expertise and we allow a maximum of 1000 words.
- A brief (200 word maximum) note, also in Spanish, where you explain your motivation to write for Astrobitos.
Commitment: We will ask you to write a post about once per month, and to edit on a similar frequency. You would also have the opportunity to represent Astrobitos in conferences. Our authors dedicate a couple of hours a month developing material for Astrobitos.
(There is no monetary compensation for writing for Astrobitos. Our work is ad honorem.)
If you are interested, please send us the material to [email protected] with subject “Material para Astrobitos”. The deadline is November 1st, 2016. Thanks!
