Access to Research is a Student Right

Volunteer with us!

Published Sep 20, 2014, 10:24am

The Right to Research Coalition is growing quickly. Over the past few months we’ve run a grant program (Generation Open Grants), started organising a major conference (OpenCon 2014) with satellite events, supported projects (e.g. Open Access Button and others) and even started a secret project we can’t yet talk about. We’re also starting to massively scale up our member engagement work to better support them.

This is all important, interesting work and if it wasn’t for the limitations of human physiology we’d do more. To carry forward key work with our members and projects we’d like to invite you to join the team as a volunteer. We’re looking to recruit for 3 positions.

  1. We’re looking to bring on two students or early career researchers chairs for our co-ordinating committees. These chairs will help facilitate the work of the committee’s in close collaboration with us. Please find a fuller description of the role, tasks and benefits here.
  2. To support all the Coalition’s work, including OpenCon 2014 we’d like to work with a communications officer to create tweets, Facebook posts and blog posts. This role would also be key in helping to create a communications strategy. Please find a fuller description of the role, tasks and benefits here

In general, all roles with the Coalition involves a large amount of responsibility and are perfect for highly motivated candidates who want to do great things. You’ll work as part of a fun, relaxed but committed team with significant opportunities for mentorship, personal development and international travel. We like people to stick around for a long time, but you can take time off when you need it and there isn’t a set “term time”.

The deadline for applications is Monday the 27th of October, but they will be reviewed on a rolling basis. If a suitable candidate applies, we strongly consider them so please don't delay applying!
