Scientists for Global Responsibility (SGR) is a small but influential research and campaign organisation that promotes science and technology that contributes to peace, social justice, and environmental sustainability. It has a membership of about 700 natural scientists, social scientists, engineers, and other concerned individuals.

We are seeking a self-motivated and conscientious individual to assist with the promotion and participation in our Science4Society Week 2022 activities and events which will run 14-19th March.

The main tasks will include promoting Science4Society Week 2022 through generating interest and participation, developing social media content, and developing the Science4Society website.
