The Software Sustainability Institute is recruiting a Communications Officer to communicate the activities of the Institute, and raise its profile in the research community and the general public. We're looking for an enthusiastic individual with a track record in dissemination and outreach. Ideally, they'll have had experience of working with researchers and/or writing technical articles, as well as an understanding of what it takes to nurture a great social media presence and successfully promote events. They should have excellent written and verbal communication skills, as well as a high degree of organisational ability as they will be responsible for overlapping tasks and projects.
The successful applicant will be based at the University of Edinburgh, and work closely with Institute staff and collaborators to disseminate information, communicate with our community, develop the Institute's social media networks, and commission articles and news stories relating to the use and development of software within the research community.
