The Center for Open Science is looking for
a Director of Marketing and Communications to lead the design, development, and execution of a full-scale, multi-channel marketing and communications strategy. We seek an experienced marketing and communications leader who will work with the leadership team and members of our Product, Policy, Research, and Development/Fundraising teams to plan, execute, report, and iterate on high-quality marketing acquisition, awareness and advocacy campaigns, and retention strategies to engage target audiences in the use, development, and evaluation of our range of products, services, and community efforts.
The Director of Marketing and Communications will drive consistent focus on the most impactful strategies that can address a range of stakeholders across the research community with varied yet complementary use cases for our products, services, policy supports, and research. This leadership role will be responsible for setting the tone and vision for organizational communication and brand strategy, maintaining a strong pulse on industry trends and using market data and insights to translate opportunities into actionable campaigns. The role also directs public relations efforts, supporting COS’s position as a thought leader in metascience and change accelerant across open scholarship. If you are passionate about helping science to be more open, transparent, reproducible, and thus effective and efficient, and can apply relevant leadership experience to drive research culture change, we want to hear from you.
Founded in 2013, COS is a non-profit organization that exists to improve the research culture. COS provides technology to make it possible and easy for researchers to increase rigor and transparency of their research; delivers education, training and services to change norms, incentives, and policies that shape the research culture, and conducts research to assess where friction is occurring in the research process and whether interventions to improve are working. We operate with transparency, openness, and inclusivity, and use the same principles as we enact change through our outreach and communication.
