Newsletter Editorship - Call for Expressions of Interest

11 October 2021 |

DEADLINE: October 22, 2021.

Our Action is approaching its second anniversary after two years’ of hard work under unexpected circumstances. We are very pleased that we have coped well with the challenges , and we  are reaching the milestones required by the Memorandum. We also feel that we should focus more of our attention on improving the flow of information between WG members within the working groups and also between these groups. 

We are intending to launch a regular newsletter, which, in line with the established practice of academic organisations, keeps our members informed about  the recent activities of other academic and professional members, and   also serves as a source of information for forthcoming events. The newsletter is planned to come out every two months, but its frequency might change in reflection to material received.

We would  like to appoint two editors whose role will be to collect information from members about their work;  edit the information as required; and post it on our website. If this kind of work is of interest you, please consider the details of the job and the application process. 

The purpose of the job

  • Gathering and editing information received form COST Action members
  • Liaising with colleagues about past and future events
  • Liaising with our Communications Officer about publishing the newsletter

The newsletter will be published every 2 month,  and the pattern of work will vary according the pattern of editing and publishing
