The Text Encoding Initiative seeks a motivated volunteer to fill the newly created role of Social Media Coordinator. The successful candidate will maintain the TEI Consortium’s Facebook and Twitter presences and create entries for the blog and newsfeed server, with the purpose of increasing the visibility of the TEI and improving its outreach activities. The role requires knowledge of the TEI and of social media, as well as enthusiasm for both.
The non-stipendiary appointment will be for one year, renewable for another. Reimbursement for expenses may be available for specific activities as approved by the Board of Directors; furthermore funding will be available to attend the annual Members’ Meeting. We will cover individual TEI membership for one, conference registration at member rates, housing at conference rates for the duration, and reimbursement for travel, food and incidentals using the scale and forms published here:
The work will be conducted in close collaboration with the chairs of the Board and the Technical Council and a commitment to a roughly daily engagement with social media is expected.
If you are interested please get in touch with Elena Pierazzo (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the 5th of April, providing a letter of motivations and listing past experiences with Social Media and the TEI. The appointment will start as soon as possible after such date.
