Leadership Positions Available

Grey Matters Journal is looking for students to add to our leadership team! Read more about the available positions below.

Editor-in-Chief

As the title suggests, this is the position with the most responsibility. The editor-in-chief is required to be extremely organized and able to tackle multiple projects at once. This position is involved in every aspect of the organization, including editing, planning, distribution, and other side projects.

To apply, please submit a formal cover letter, 2 writing samples (preferably one technical and one non technical), and an editing sample (optional, but preferred).

Editing Coordinator

The editing coordinator is the most editing-heavy position. This member needs to have a firm grasp of proper grammar and excellent editing skills. The editing coordinator will not only edit during production, but will also choose editors from editing applications and assign production groups.

To apply, please submit a formal cover letter, 2 writing samples (preferably one technical and one non-technical), and an editing sample (required).

Production Manager

The production manager will work directly with authors and editors to assist in the writing and editing processes. They will also need to be strong editors, and having a science background helps in this position. The production manager will also take on extra tasks as needed.

To apply, please submit a formal cover letter, 2 writing samples (preferably one technical and one non-technical), and an editing sample (optional, but preferred).

Marketing Director

The marketing director will be involved in distribution, social media, and marketing our annual event. Experience in marketing is desired, but anyone who is confident in their social media skills and can come to the table with original marketing ideas should apply.

To apply, please submit a formal cover letter.

Event Planner

The event planner will lead a committee in planning our annual event: An Evening With Neuroscience. This involves fundraising, scheduling, marketing, finding panelists/guests, etc. The event takes place in early spring, so availability to plan in the winter is a must.

To apply, please submit a formal cover letter.

 

All positions will be required to attend weekly leadership meetings. The Editor-in-Chief, Editing Coordinator, and Production Managers will also be required to attend weekly group production meetings on Thursdays at 6:30pm.
