The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists is a media organization, publishing a free daily news website and a digital subscription magazine. But we are much more. The Bulletin’s website, iconic Doomsday Clock, and regular events help advance actionable ideas at a time when technology is outpacing our ability to control it. The Bulletin focuses on three main areas: nuclear risk, climate change, and disruptive technologies. What connects these topics is a driving belief that because humans created them, we can control them. With smart, vigorous prose, multimedia presentations, and information graphics the Bulletin puts issues and events into context and provides fact-based debates and assessments.

The Bulletin is an independent, nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization. We gather a diverse array of the most informed and influential voices tracking man-made threats and bring their innovative thinking to a global audience. We apply intellectual rigor to the conversation and do not shrink from alarming truths. For 75 years, the Bulletin has bridged the technology divide between scientific research, foreign policy and public engagement.

Position Description

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists seeks a Social Media and Analytics Coordinator to support our Digital Operations and editorial team. This position requires extensive involvement in social media platforms, e-newsletter editing and creation. The coordinator will also be integral in announcement creation, assistance with administrative website postings, social media, and media outreach. Tracking of social media/website statistics and creating committee reports are also key parts of the position. Familiarity with similar publications and organizations, particularly around social media and communications, will be helpful. This position reports to the Chief Digital Officer and works closely with the Assistant Director of Digital Operations.

We are looking for a creative, high-energy individual who is flexible and values collaboration. While we favor a Chicago-based coordinator, the right candidate can live in any U.S. time zone. Our office is located at the Harris School of Public Policy at the University of Chicago. Candidates who thrive on innovation and a fast-paced workplace will feel at home.
