We are designing several outreach programmes some specifically in astronomy and some in wider sciences and would love to hear from interested candidates.
Hours listed are not indicative. Work on offer is negotiable to suit the right candidate, remuneration will be based on experience.
You do not need tertiary studies in astronomy to apply, we are quite happy with enthusiastic hobbyists and self-taught space nerds! : ) Experience in communication (ideally in outreach) is ideal, as is a current first aid certificate.
If there is a branch of science you would rather work in outreach for, please ensure to state that in your cover letter as we might have the ability to line that up instead.
We would also love to see your current career aspirations in that same cover letter (whether they relate to this position or not).
Most of the work in this space will be communicating to children and teenagers, some of that in person and some online. Therefore we would consider candidates with experience with children and / or those with digital communication skills.
