Volunteer Roles: Two Journal Social Media Editors (JSMEs)

We are looking for two new volunteer Journal Social Media Editors (JSMEs). There are two positions available, one volunteer for FEMS Microbiology Ecology and one volunteer for microLife. Both roles involve reading the latest microbiological research published in our journals to then produce well-made social media posts about these papers for our audience on X 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 submit your application via the web-form linked via the button below. In the application form, you will find a specific communications task for candidates to complete which must be submitted as part of the application.

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: 17 June 2024
