Seeking Work

I haven’t had to actively seek work for a while now. I’ve been at Australasian Science a day a week for 13 years, and while my other work* is a bit erratic, it’s been seven years since I have not had enough to keep me comfortable. However,  various developments mean that I’m now seeking another day a week or so of paid work, preferably in science writing. I imagine this is more likely to come through a series of short contracts than a regular day a week, which is fine by me.

Clearly this blog testifies to the fact that if you want someone with layout skills, or much facility with IT, I am not your man. However, I hope the book, and my work at Australasian Science, demonstrates that I have skills as a writer. Equally importantly I have a broad understanding of scientific methods and concepts that allows me to grasp research in most areas of science quickly, and explain it clearly to non-specialists.

If you happen to have need for someone with these skills, I can be reached on sluntz at

*My major other line of work is as a Returning Officer for non-government elections. Democracy in the non-profit sector is an important part of civil society, and is usually best served by having an independent outsider run the election. I’m a partner at Above Quota Elections. I also demonstrate physics pracs at the University of Melbourne. I edited Issues magazine for three years before my publisher decided I was a better writer than I am an editor.



About Stephen Luntz

I am a science journalist, specialising in Australian and New Zealand research across all fields of science. My book, Forensics, Fossils and Fruitbats: A Field Guide to Australian Scientists is out now through CSIRO Publishing. I am also a professional returning officer for non-government organisations. I'm very politically active, but generally try to restrict this blog to scientific matters.
