|I advertised a version of this job for the previous #ias2011 session here, and cleverly managed to get the logo in (it’s very pretty) but it’s not staying put today, but never mind.
[Job] Gallomanor: I’m a Scientist Get Me Out of Here, Moderator, ??7.50p/h, clos end Feb 2011 #scicomm jobs
Closing ASAP, which is a bit inexact for my obsessive filing of job descriptions 😉
Gallomanor: I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here!
You would be overseeing part of our (innovative! groundbreaking! award-winning!) online event where teenagers talk to real live scientists. You can find out more about the event on the main website.
Your job would be hosting/moderating live chats, approving questions, checking the site for errors and inappropriate content and helping to run the site. It???s actually a lot of fun as the young people are sparky and funny and full of energy. And hey, promoting science engagement is a good thing.
You should be bright, pick stuff up easily, ideally with an interest in science engagement and perhaps some experience of blogging and/or social media. The site is all built on wordpress, so if you???ve used that the techy stuff will be pretty familiar. You???d be working from home, so you must also have broadband.
Please send a CV and short covering letter ASAP (we???ll be making a decision at the start of June), to Rosie Schultz on firstname.lastname@example.org telling us why you think you???d be a good moderator. Feel free to give us a ring to find out more about the job.
Dates: 13th ??? 24th June
Hours: 37.5/week (we???ll do staggered shifts, the earliest 8.30-4.30, the latest 10.30-6.30)
