  • Skilled, punchy writer with a distinct voice. Must have an interest or passion in “mind science” and able to distill concepts down into interesting, digestible narratives (i.e. neuroscience is the new rocket science.)
  • Social media marketing and insights. Must have a background in social media development, execution, and strategy. This includes analyzing audience demographics and insights, crafting headlines, graphics, and stories, and collaborating with other science/tech platforms to build audience. Experience with podcasts a plus.

  • Establish strategic relationships/partnerships with key media & science/tech/news publications
  • Craft a digestible weekly email newsletter - “Building a Better Mind,” news and tips for people seeking to better their mind
  • Crafting a longer-format article on Medium around human intelligence (i.e. ReThink HI - weekly short form Q&A’s with different thought leaders in the neuroscience/future literacy space, from a writer on Black Mirror to the CEO of neurotech company) - See examples of CEO’s former posts on Medium here
  • Develop and execute on creative ideas to build an active and engaged community around neuroscience
  • Curate popular news articles and posts, manage Kernel social media strategy (Twitter, Facebook, Medium, possibly Instagram)
  • Having an active understanding of neuroscience in pop culture - i.e. Westworld, Black Mirror - and strategically build interest in the communities of these existing brands
  • Produce & oversee a weekly podcast, hosted by CEO Bryan Johnson. Responsible for outreach to guests, scheduling/booking, and oversight of podcast marketing materials and strategy (images, social media posts, etc.)
