The HBA Public Relations Committee is recruiting a new JUNIOR SERVICE FELLOW to serve as producer for the weekly science podcast The Sausage of Science (https://www.humbio.org/podcasts/ ). This position is suited to those with interest in science communication and some familiarity with our podcast. We recommend listening to a mix of older and more recent episodes from beginning to end to familiarize yourself with content and style before applying.

Duties will include:

· Editing podcast recordings (using open-source Audacity software, ~2.5 hours every other week),

· Pulling quotes from interviews for PR and compiling program notes (~5 minutes if done in editing workflow),

· Assigning category and tags to each episode for SEO,

· Posting episodes to Soundcloud and HBA site,

· Notify interviewees of episodes and post to social media weekly

· Conducting occasional interviews, if desired

Podcast co-hosts will provide training specific to the job, including custom how-to video tutorials. Expected time commitment is ~6 hours/month.

Each Junior Service Fellow will receive $750 in travel reimbursement to attend the annual HBA meeting for each year of service.

Interested applicants should send an email expressing interest with a CV (and for student members, a brief email note of support from their adviser) to HBA Public Relations Chair (and SoS cohost) Cara Ocobock (cocobock@nd.edu).

Applications will be reviewed beginning July 22, 2024.
