The Journal’s editorial office invites applications for a one-year, full-time paid research fellowship beginning in July 2014 from individuals at any stage of training.

The editorial fellow will work on the Images in Clinical Medicine and Clinical Decisions series with one of the senior editors.  The fellow also moderates the comments for the website, does some tagging for the home page, and writes Insights posts for the Now@NEJM blog.

Participation in day-to-day editorial activities comprises about 70% of the role.  Also NEJM asks fellows to have a project of their own that they would like to pursue.  A lot of the fellowship experience depends on the interests and abilities of the candidate/fellow.

The New England Journal of Medicine is dedicated to bringing physicians the best research and key information at the intersection of biomedical science and clinical practice, and to presenting the information in an understandable and clinically useful format. A career companion for physicians, NEJM keeps practicing physicians informed on developments that are important to their patients and keeps them connected to both clinical science and the values of being a good physician.


NEJM is the most widely read, cited, and influential general medical periodical in the world. As it evolves to meet the changing needs of its readers in the 21st century, it is committed to maintaining that reputation and integrity, while using innovative formats and technologies for new features and faster delivery and access.
