Heart Asia, published by BMJ and co-owned with the British Cardiovascular Society, has an exciting vacancy for an enthusiastic Social Media Editor to drive the journal’s web presence worldwide.
Heart Asia is an online peer reviewed journal that aims to convey the best cardiology research and practice from the developing regions of the world to an international audience. The journal seeks to publish work from around the world, with the Asia Pacific being a region of particular focus. More information can be found at heartasia.bmj.com.
Heart Asia offers online features such as a blog, podcasts, Facebook and Twitter. The journal is searching for someone to support the editorial team in improving the journal’s visibility and reach via these and other social media, by promoting the journal’s content as well as helping its core readership to stay up to date with news and developments in the field.
Candidates should be educated to postgraduate level with knowledge of the journal’s subject area. Some experience of science communication and/or digital content management systems such as Twitter, Facebook and WordPress would be preferred, but the main criteria for the successful applicant will be enthusiasm for the subject area, creativity, and an interest in using new technologies to disseminate scientific research. The role would be ideally suited to a junior researcher or practising clinician, and they may be based anywhere in the world.
The Social Media Editor will report directly to the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, and may be expected to participate occasionally in editorial meetings (either in person or remotely by telephone or videoconference). This is an unpaid position, but training and support will be provided by BMJ’s digital communications team.
To apply, please send your CV and covering letter to Lindsey Fountain, Associate Publisher at BMJ, at email@example.com.
Deadline: 19th May 2017
