Science Communication Coordinator
Ecological Society of Australia
Remote / Work from Home, Australia
The Ecological Society of Australia (ESA) is the peak group of ecologists in Australia, representing members from across Australia who work in universities and other research organisations, government agencies, NGOs, private industry, practitioners, and consultancies. We are a national not-for-profit formed in 1959. We are a registered environmental charity.
In conjunction with the Media Working Group, the Science Communication Coordinator will help plan, develop and distribute content to promote the ESA, ecology, and the work of ecologists in Australia; and advise on strategic direction for ESA’s public communication and engagement activities. This role reports to the Board through the Media Working Group and Executive Officer.
SCIENCE COMMUNICATION COORDINATOR
The ESA’s mission is to ‘foster excellence in ecological science and practice. We create an inclusive community to support research and knowledge sharing to better understand ecological systems. We apply this knowledge for the benefit of people and nature.’ One of our core values is knowledge sharing, and our new Strategic Plan places a strong emphasis on effective communication with members and others outside of the Society to improve understanding of ecology more broadly, and integrate ecological principles into environmental policy and society.
The incumbent will design and implement an integrated communication strategy to support achievement of ESA’s aims as articulated in our Strategic Plan 2020-2024. An effective communication strategy will enable: meaningful communication with members, the capacity to reach and attract potential members, and a stronger profile and appreciation of ecology amongst the wider community.
