Sadly, moving to London is out of the question for me at the moment. Does BMC consider telecommuting for any of its positions?

Hi Bill,

We pride ourselves on being a flexible organisation, and while we are headquartered in London (which is one reason I haven’t written organization!) we are happy to discuss opportunities with the right people who wish to work remotely. We’ll contact you directly.

Best wishes, Bryan

Are there ever opportunities for biomedical *writers* (as opposed to editors) — someone who can take complex information and craft it into intelligible, entertaining prose? I’ve done this for The Scientist,, Drug Discovery Today,, … But it’s difficult to find anything but freelance opportunities, and these don’t even seem to be advertised.

Based in Boston, I wish I could relocate to London. Unfortunately, I can’t consider this opportunity right now. I would be very interested to work for BMC, is there any way to do it remotely?
