This person has overall responsibility for implementing the dissemination strategy for all the research output of the Center. Our goal is to move from simply publishing research findings to actively engaging, over social media, with our funders, research collaborators, journalists and the interested public. So along with leading the Center`s daily engagement over social media, this job involves working with Center faculty and staff to raise our collective presence online.
