The Center for Health Disparities Research (CHDR), led by Dr. Amy Kind, has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself, but also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. To this end, we seek a Public Relations Specialist to join our dynamic, growing, and multidisciplinary team. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
The ideal candidate must be detail-oriented; possess excellent interpersonal, problem-solving, and organizational skills; have the agility to work concurrently on multiple tasks, projects, and assignments; and have a proven record of developing and executing strategic communications initiatives.
Impeccable language skills (writing, reading, listening, and speaking) are essential – but more than that, we seek a person who has the creativity, savvy, and analytical fitness to develop, adapt, or synthesize complex information for a variety of audiences, purposes, and modes of delivery. This work requires a great deal of empathy, attentiveness, science literacy, and technical skill; proficiency with – or motivation to learn – a spectrum of content creation, management, and delivery techniques and tools; and a willingness to embrace a culture of collaboration and feedback.
We appreciate diversity and respect the many differences and similarities in the workplace, including the varied perspectives, approaches, and competencies of coworkers and populations that we serve. The CHDR Public Relations Specialist will work closely with the Outreach Program Manager and members of the CHDR leadership team to ensure that every member of the Center’s community has a voice and that their voices inform and are represented in the content we create and share.
SMPH is committed to being a diverse, equitable, inclusive and anti-racist workplace and is an Equal Employment Opportunity, Affirmative Action employer. Applications from Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) individuals, LGBTQ+ and non-binary identities, women, persons with disabilities, military service members and veterans are strongly encouraged.
