I’m a Scientist and I’m an Engineer – Online Moderation Job Opportunity

We’re looking for 6 moderators to work on I’m a Scientist & I’m an Engineer for 2 weeks this June, and we’ve committed in our grant application to recruit SciComm people where possible.

The job provides great experience and is a lot of fun. Although you’d be working from home you’d be part of an 8 strong team in total with a strong sense of camaraderie.

The full advert is here:

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 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. You’ll have great attention to detail and will enjoy being online. 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 by Wednesday 22 May to Emily on emily@gallomanor.com explaining why you’re the one that we want. Feel free to give Emily a ring to find out more about the job 01225 326892.

Dates: 17 – 28 June (weekdays)
Hours: 37.5/week, 08:30-16:00
Pay: £7.50/hr

You can find out more about the events at: imascientist.org.uk
