More than half the world's population sees AP journalism every day.
The Associated Press seeks an audience development producer to share and expand the reach of health and science stories to digital consumers and news customers. Reporting to a deputy Health and Science editor and based in any city in the U.S. with an AP office, you will help to grow reader, viewer and online engagement around AP’s coverage of science and medicine, working closely with a diverse team of journalists and across departments to highlight engaging content tailored for mobile, websites and other digital platforms. You will pioneer new approaches to promoting storytelling, help create and edit eye-catching social promotion and use other digital tools to present stories in unique ways and expand engagement on AP’s digital and social media platforms. You will also engage and connect with external parties such as customers on coverage needs around the beat. This is a grant-funded position lasting at least a year; an extension is possible contingent on funding.

Experience covering health and science is a plus, and knowledge of using Adobe Premiere and social metric tools is preferred. Applicants must be able and willing to work any shift, including nights and weekends, or as coverage demands, as AP is a 24/7 operation.
We will consider strong candidates who do not meet every listed qualification. You may use a cover letter to describe the unique qualifications you would bring to this role.
Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience.
All applicants must be able to work in the U.S. or be able to gain permission to do so.
