Open Positions

Public Health Communications Manager

Intervene Upstream is looking for someone who is passionate about public health and vocal about that passion to oversee our social media and communications. The Public Health Communications Manager is integral to increasing IU’s engagement and expanding our reach. You will:

  • Create and implement a social media strategy for IU 
  • Administer IU social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram)
  • Share new and past IU content
  • Lead public health conversations across social media platforms

This position will work closely with the Outreach Manager and report (as needed) to the Editor in Chief, but will have great autonomy in generating, editing, publishing, and sharing engaging content. 

Outreach Manager

Intervene Upstream’s major goal for 2022 is to increase capacity – we want to engage more writers and artists, establish productive, sustainable channels to solicit submissions, and generally expand our roster and our reach. The Outreach Manager will create and strengthen relationships with individuals and organizations including schools of public health, professional societies, other public health publications, relevant nonprofits and companies in the space, and others.

This position will work closely with the Public Health Communications Manager and report (as needed) to the Managing Editor, but will have great autonomy in building awareness about IU.

Staff Artist

Most submissions to Intervene Upstream are written work, but we never post an article without an accompanying image. More often than not, we source these images from royalty-free image websites. We are looking for an artist who wants to create original public health images – primarily to accompany new articles, but also potentially as stand-alone posts. We are open to visual artists who work in any medium.
