Opening on ORFG/SPARC Team

SPARC has a rare opening on our small, dynamic team.  We are beginning a recruiting effort for a Community Manager for the Open Research Funders Group. This new role will expand the ORFG’s capacity, helping to liaise with existing and prospective ORFG members to better understand the tools and resources necessary for developing, launching, and overseeing open policies. The Community Manager will increase the ORFG’s participation in events, respond to opportunities, and cultivate strategic relationships with research stakeholders. Additionally, the Community Manager will help further develop ORFG programming, including collecting and analyzing existing funder policies to determine best practices, cohort clustering, and opportunities for information-sharing. The role will also engage with targeted funders to understand hurdles to policy adoption and appropriate tools to address these issues.

The ORFG Community Manager role will be a virtual position and can be located anywhere with occasional post-pandemic travel to meetings, conferences, etc. (estimated at 3-4 trips per year).

SPARC is a project of New Venture Fund, a 501(c)(3) and offers a comprehensive benefits package for USA-based employees.
