| The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) is searching for a resourceful and collaborative communicator who will handle day-to-day operations of our new members-only online community and who is excited to contribute to longer-term planning and growth. |
The online community is part of Neuronline, SfN's new members-only learning and discussion site that offers neuroscientists opportunities to network, advance their career, converse about the latest science news, and comment on content.
In this dynamic role, the Online Community Associate will be part of the Digital Strategy & Neuronline team and will work regularly across the organization and with SfN volunteer leadership and members. The Associate will serve as the go-to expert for our online community software, share relevant updates with stakeholders, and implement programmatic requests and SfN committee initiatives in the online community. The Associate will also provide critical ongoing support for SfN's growing webinar program.
The ideal candidate is a self-starting individual who is able to effectively manage large and small projects for the department and across SfN. Strong business writing, prioritization, and organization skills are a must, as well as an ability to work in a fast-paced environment.
The Associate will:
•Be the first point of contact for Neuronline's online community software, working to plan and promote online expert live chats, facilitate meaningful member engagement, respond to member inquiries, troubleshoot issues (no technical expertise necessary), among other tasks as assigned.
•Keep track of online community and webinar web analytics for different reporting needs.
