Science Information Officer

Salary: £25,000 – £28,000 depending on experience

Would you like to play an important role in improving the way science is covered in the news?

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work at the Science Media Centre (SMC).  We are looking for a Science Information Officer to help us make, break and react to some of the biggest science stories in the national news.

The Science Information Officer is a role that gives much needed support to a team of busy press officers dealing with breaking news stories on anything and everything from swine flu to climate change. You will take responsibility for researching and writing fact sheets for breaking stories, horizon scanning issues that might hit the news, managing the SMC’s expert database and website, and providing some support to the Chief Executive.  You will have a broad interest in science and the media, be able to multitask and work under pressure, have the ability to summarise large amounts of complex scientific information to tight deadlines and have great IT skills.

This is not a role for the faint-hearted, so if you can work with a calm head when things are busy and demanding then this is the job for you!
