Volunteer role: Journal Social Media Editor (JSME) for FEMS Yeast Research
We are looking for a new volunteer Journal Social Media Editor (JSME) to take the latest microbiological research published in our journal FEMS Yeast Research and produce well-made social media posts about these papers for our audience on Twitter and Facebook.
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 Project Manager, 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 fill in the application form via the button below. Please note that to complete this form requires you to complete and upload a task, upload your CV, and submit a motivation paragraph.
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: 14 August 2023
