The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) is a nonprofit scientific organization, founded in 1906, whose mission is to advance the science of biochemistry and molecular biology and to promote the understanding of the molecular nature of life processes. The ASBMB executes its mission through publication of scientific and educational journals; organization of scientific meetings; advocacy for funding of basic research and education; support of science education at all levels; and promoting the diversity of individuals entering the scientific workforce. The society’s headquarters is in Rockville, Md.
The ASBMB publishes three scientific journals: Journal of Biological Chemistry, Molecular & Cellular Proteomics, and the Journal of Lipid Research. All articles undergo an extensive peer-review process. ASBMB journal editors and reviewers are practicing scientists.
The ASBMB is seeking an experienced science communicator to disseminate research findings published in the three journals to the scientific community in multiple formats and across multiple platforms, making use of synergies among the journals whenever possible. The communicator should be broadly familiar with scientific trends and emerging topics to facilitate selection and description of relevant, timely content for a general scientific audience. This individual will be a member of the ASBMB Publications Department, reporting to the Senior Director of Publications and working in collaboration with ASBMB staff — including JBC’s scientific and technical editors, the staff of the society’s news magazine, and members of the ASBMB Marketing Department — as well as the journal editors.
