GeoHealth Social Media Fellow

Signup Deadline: 12-21-2019
Starts: 01-01-2020
Ends: 12-31-2021
Location: Online Opportunity


Are you Twitter savvy? Are you passionate about advancing understanding of the complex interactions between our geospheric environment (including earth, water, soils and air) and the health of human populations?

The American Geophysical Union’s GeoHealth section needs your help! We are seeking a social media savvy volunteer to apply to become the inaugural GeoHealth Social Media Fellow. 

The GeoHealth Social Media Fellow will be a key partner of the GeoHealth Executive Committee by ensuring that there is a steady stream of content disseminated through the GeoHealth Twitter account. The Fellow will make posts and disseminate content within the scope of the guidelines outlined in the GeoHealth’s social media plan to support the goals of increasing GeoHealth section membership, increasing readership of and submission to the GeoHealth journal, building an active online community of practice where section members can connect and stay updated on the GeoHealth section happenings, and promoting the awareness of GeoHealth as a discipline to the general public and the broader scientific community.


Although we are seeking applicants that have previous experience with social media, our GeoHealth Social Media Fellow will also receive additional social media training from AGU staff. 


This is a competitively awarded, unpaid, 1-year position. We anticipate that this would require a weekly commitment of 3-5 hours/week. 

Interested? Email AGU’s GeoHealth Section Communications and Outreach Co-Chairs Amalia Almada and Mike Wimberly and include a 2-5 sentence statement that describes your interest in advancing the GeoHealth mission through social media. Please also share how you currently engage with Twitter (number of followers, average number of tweets per week) and an example Tweet that you are proud of!
