Accepting Staff Applications for the Fall

Accepting Staff Applications for the Fall Semester

JYI is seeking highly qualified and motivated
students for integral positions on our scientific journal.

The Journal of Young Investigators (JYI) is an independent, non-profit, peer-reviewed, online science journal that is managed entirely by and for undergraduate students from across the world. JYI’s innovative manuscript review process serves as a platform for undergraduates to be involved in every step of the peer-review process, a valuable experience that cannot be found anywhere else. Our staff is made up entirely of undergraduate students, with the assistance of faculty and professional mentors. All of our staff receive comprehensive training from their department, which can include corporate management, science writing, journalism, editing, finance management, and programming. Since its founding in 1997, JYI has been the pioneering journal for reviewing undergraduate research, publishing science news, and providing career information. JYI’s unique mission has been recognized in Science, Nature, EurekAlert!, The Chronicle on Higher Education, and The New York Times.

We are currently accepting applications for three positions in our executive board:

The Chief Operating Officer is in charge of fostering a supportive environment for JYI staff members and serves as a bridge between leadership and staff. Responsibilities include managing internal programs, coordinating staff applications, working with universities worldwide, and monitoring recruitment drives. The COO ultimately ensures that all staff understand and fulfill our organization’s primary mission of enriching undergraduate science education and journalism.

The Chief Technology Officer acts as the webmaster and is responsible for maintaining and updating JYI website. This responsibility includes the development, maintenance, and/ or security of the website on Squarespace, WordPress, and other database files. Candidates with an interest in technology and scientific research should apply!

The Chief Financial Officer is responsible for JYI’s budget and overall financial health. This includes managing JYI’s quarterly and annual budgets, developing JYI’s medium- and long-term strategy for financial growth to fund new and ongoing initiatives, and leading the overall process and strategy for securing grants. This also includes working with the Board of Directors to prepare JYI’s tax information, maintaining the JYI alumni database, developing portfolio health reports, and maintaining JYI’s AdWords and AdSense accounts. The CFO ultimately ensures that JYI continuously receives financial support to achieve its goals of improving undergraduate science education.

We are additionally accepting applications for other editorial positions:

The Deputy News & Careers Edtior (DNCE) serves as a deputy to the heads of the News & Features department and the Science Careers Center. As a deputy to two executive positions, this staff member will help run both departments and facilitate the article writing process. The deputy will oversee hiring and training for both departments and organize the writing cycle. This is a non-executive board leadership position that provides the opportunity to manage the department and move into an executive role. The deputy will also work more closely with the staff Journalists and Editors than the department heads (SNFE and DCC).
