Employment Opportunity: Communications and Program Coordinator

The Earthquake Engineering Research Institute (EERI) seeks a proactive, creative, organized, and technology-aware Communications and Program Coordinator.

This person will implement a communications program aligned with EERI’s brand and goals with a focus on ensuring high visibility for EERI amongst current members, prospective members, and other stakeholders, and will deploy activities by various programs and committees that heavily leverage the communications infrastructure.

The Communications and Program Coordinator must be self-motivated, flexible, an excellent communicator, and an outstanding team player. This position requires someone eager to lead the writing and deployment of clear, concise messaging to a diverse technical audience of academics, practitioners, and students through a variety of electronic communication mechanisms. Confidence in deploying social media messaging and interacting with a membership database is necessary. Strong planning and organizational skills are essential because program activities will vary in scope, timeline, and team size. Enthusiasm for supporting a diverse cross-section of member volunteers and flexibility to adjust to shifting demands will be essential.

The Communications and Program Coordinator should be adept and comfortable working in a collaborative working environment, both virtually and in-person, amongst many professional volunteers and EERI’s small six-person staff team.
