Volunteer role: Journal Social Media Editors (JSMEs)
We are looking for new volunteer Journal Social Media Editors (JSMEs) to take the latest microbiological research published in our journals FEMS Microbiology Reviews, FEMS Yeast Research, and Pathogens and Disease and produce well-made social media posts about these papers for our audience on Twitter and Facebook. Each JSME will be assigned responsibility to one journal, so we are looking for 3 volunteers.
This role is to be performed remotely: online and by email.
You will get the chance to develop social media and science communications skills. No experience is necessary (although is desirable), there is plenty of time to learn and develop while volunteering with us.
You will work closely with the Science Communications Officer, the other JSMEs, and staff at the FEMS Office who will provide advice and training and a continued presence throughout your commitment.
The commitment expected involves regular posts (1 -2 per week) for an initial duration of 12 months. We also coordinate ad-hoc communications campaigns organized around specific events across the year. (e.g. International Women’s Day, Antibiotic Awareness Week, Peer Review Week etc.).
If you wish to apply, then please email a current CV and a short paragraph explaining your reasons wanting the role to:
Please also do make contact if you have any questions about the role you want answered first. This is not a paid position, and will not lead directly to any paid work with FEMS.
Applications Deadline: 30 April 2020
