Posted on behalf of AusSMC…
Australian Science Media Centre
Salary: $65,000-$75,000 plus 9% superannuation
12 month maternity leave placement
An opportunity has arisen to join the team at the Australian Science Media Centre (AusSMC) for a one-year maternity leave placement starting in January 2011. We are looking for a media professional with a passion for science and the media to help us make, break and react to some of the biggest science stories in the national news.
The AusSMC is a national, independent, non-profit service for the news media, giving journalists direct access to evidence-based science and expertise. We aim to better inform public debate on the major issues of the day by improving links between the media and the scientific community. This is not a role for the faint-hearted – but if you can work with a calm head when things are busy and demanding then this is the job for you.
We are looking for someone with at least three years experience in a news environment and ideally a background in science. The position is based in Adelaide and will require some interstate travel. Relocation costs are negotiable.
