LabX seeks an associate program officer to help oversee its suite of new public engagement projects. Working with the rest of the LabX team, the associate program officer will be involved with the planning, design, and implementation of public-facing programs that serve the LabX mission of empowering young adults to use science and scientific thinking in their daily lives and in their communities.
We are looking for an individual who is willing and eager to experiment with methods for engaging audiences with scientific content that go beyond traditional mechanisms such as science cafes. As such, the candidate must be creative, self-motivated, and able to operate with a high degree of autonomy. Experience working as part of community-focused public engagement efforts is required. A scientific background is encouraged but not required.
