Lead Trainer and Curriculum Developer – Open Source Specialism
Project Manager – POSE Training Program

Center for Scienentific Collaboration and Community Engagement

 

There are currently two open positions on the CSCCE staff team, both are in the field of modern research development.

As science becomes more complex, multidisciplinary, and spread across multiple locations, the human infrastructure to facilitate connections among researchers and to coordinate the flow of information becomes essential. These roles, collectively termed scientific community engagement managers, make up an emerging and growing specialist field. Community managers are not only found in research institutions – they are also found in professional associations that bring together scientists around shared goals, and in infrastructure organizations where scientists work together to evolve the tools, standards, and practices that shape how modern research is done. This emerging field is being championed by the Center for Scientific Collaboration and Community Engagement (CSCCE).

Digital Political Communication

University of Vienna

 

The Political Communication Research Group (https://polcom.univie.ac.at/) at the Department of Communication of the University of Vienna studies the interaction between political elites, media, and citizens. Current research is focused on understanding how and under which conditions political elites communicate with citizens, what role media organizations and journalists play in the political communication process, and how citizens process elite and journalistic communication. Scholars in the group use a variety of qualitative and quantitative social research methods to develop and test theories that help understand the quality of political communication in democracies today. To extend the group’s research profile, we are looking for a motivated postdoc with a focus on digital political communication.

Scientific Knowledge Broker 50% - 60%

Eawag

 

Translating Science to Policy is an key challenge when it comes to sustainability & development research, especially in the water and sanitation sector. We can see numerous research articles, practical guides, policy briefs, grey literature, tools and guidelines that are being churned out year after year. While they add great value to the academic body, more often than not, these outputs do not adequately reach the relevant practitioners and key decision makers who can actually use them to make a difference on ground. In that regard, Sandec-Eawag is looking for some one to help us bridge that gap in our upcoming projects. We are recruiting a Scientific Knowledge Broker to support our work in synthesizing research findings and facilitating their uptake in the Swiss and Global Development communities. If this resonates with you and you'd like to work with a set of motivated and supportive colleagues in an enriching environment, then please take a look at the job details and make your application.
