Science Communication Team

Outreach Coordinators (up to 2 positions available), Science Communication’s Scholarly Writing Challenge (SWC)

About the Science Communication Team: Our Science Communication division comprises the STEM Fellowship Journal (SFJ) – an open-access peer-reviewed journal, a national high school scholarly writing competition, scientific editing certification, scientific writing consulting services, and interactive scholarly communication workshops and webinars that have reached over 600 students across Canada. The SFJ, which is published by Canadian Science Publishing and supported by a board of PhD-holding peer reviewers, provides high school and university students with their first opportunity for scholarly publication while showcasing original, interdisciplinary ideas of the future academic talent. Through the SFJ, we aim to foster a scholarly network of STEM researchers across Canada.

We are recruiting committed and driven individuals to fulfill leadership roles as executive members of our Science Communication Team; the main portfolios in which Science Communication Executive Members can be involved are listed below under Primary Accountabilities and Responsibilities. The time commitment for each position will be approximately 3-5 hours per week, except that of a Team Lead which will occupy approximately 4-7 hours per week.

Primary Accountabilities and Responsibilities:

The high school scholarly writing challenge is an annual, Canada-wide competition where high school students submit their best piece of scholarly writing for a chance to win a plethora of prizes. The 2019 SWC was the most successful iteration of the challenge by far, with over 100 competing students. This year we aim to surpass previous records. Outreach coordinators will report to the SWC Team Lead. We are looking for two coordinators with experience in brainstorming, organizing, and managing online promotional campaigns, media, events, and networking initiatives to promote the challenge.

Outreach coordinators are at the forefront of the challenge, thus they should possess exceptional professional and leadership skills relating to communication, public relations, and management. They will be responsible for forming and maintaining new relationships with highschool ambassadors, highschool coordinators, and various existing partners including Youth Science Canada, Digital Science, The Knowledge Society, SciNet, The Society of Canadian Women in Science and Technology, Canada Science Publishing, Student Life Network, and Prospective Medical Professionals. They will also be responsible for fielding questions via email from prospective participants, current participants, and past inquiries. This is an excellent opportunity for an undergraduate or graduate student to add a significant national-level project to their resume. Although the annual competition has been conducted during the fall of every calendar year, we hope to further increase its reach and frequency over the next few years. For more details regarding the challenge itself, refer to https://stemfellowship.org/scholarly-writing-challenge/.
