New job listing in public engagement at AAAS

My clients at the American Association for the Advancement of Science are recruiting for a program associate position in its public engagement area, which (among other things) creates the Communicating Science workshops for science that I facilitate.  Note that it's a full-time one-year-only position.  Among other qualifications, they're looking for an associate "to play a key role in developing and executing new and ongoing initiatives of the AAAS Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology."  Among the duties:

· Provide programmatic and development support for the Center for Public Engagement with Science and Technology;
· Schedule, organize and coordinate activities associated with public engagement workshops and events;
· Write and edit print and online materials including communications to public engagement stakeholders;
· Plan and implement new projects for public engagement, including researching funding opportunities and assisting Public Engagement Manager with writing grant requests; and
· Devise and implement strategies for increasing the visibility of AAAS and public engagement with science.

They're looking for 3 to 5 years of work experience in communications or education, among other requirements. To apply, visit the AAAS Employment website, and look for requisition number 1799.
