Do you want to be part of an international team of physicists, game developers and psychologists working on an exciting global project? Are you interested in how our future will be shaped by games, quantum computing and physics?

The Opportunity

In the spring of 2016 ScienceAtHome moved from a small player to a big contributor in the Citizen Science community. We launched a new website, published an article in the prestigious science journal Nature and launched two new apps for iOS and Android. Over 200,000 players have played our games and during peak periods we have experienced over 27,000 daily visitors to our website scienceathome.org.

We are now looking for a video content manager with creativity and initiative to encourage our online community of users to volunteer time and effort and make important contributions to scientific research.

We need your help to make our digital presence stronger, tell stories from behind the scenes and give us a voice and a face.

The ScienceAtHome team punches well above its size; we do all our digital development and social media outreach in-house and are extremely ambitious in what we deliver. We do well because we care about our work, and the projects we are involved in.
