We're looking for a Social Media Editor
Call for Applications: Lady Science Social Media Editor
Lady Science is looking for a Social Media Editor to help us engage with and grow our audience. The ideal candidate will have a robust personal social media presence, or experience managing social in a professional capacity. We’re looking for someone who knows how to navigate the broad expanse of social media, not just an academic nook. You’ll need to learn and adopt the voice of the magazine, and be comfortable handling all of our public-facing engagements without much direct supervision. We need someone committed to our mission of feminism and social justice, who is comfortable working on what can be controversial issues online. An interest in science and/or history is helpful but certainly not required.
This position is 8-10 hours per month and pays a stipend of $100 per month.
Writing and posting social media content on Facebook and Twitter: The SME will be responsible for daily content on both platforms, but most of it can be written ahead of time and scheduled for posting. We prefer to have at least one link to something our readers might find interesting on both platforms each day, plus other types of engagement with the Lady Science community.
Managing engagement on social media: The SME should keep up with replies and engagements across both platforms, engaging with users as appropriate.
Planning and executing social media strategies and projects: We want someone who comes to Lady Science with ideas about how to increase our engagement, ideas for Twitter threads, chats, and other interactive uses of social media. We are especially interested in an SME who can help us build and strengthen social relationships with other similar media organizations. Think of it like feminist media social coalition building.
Send us a short (300 words) cover letter explaining your interest in the job, a CV or resume so we can get to know your work experience, and links to your personal social media and any other social media pages you have curated. Send everything to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday December 1.
