This fall, we're piloting a new wing of neuroscience communication: online content creation! We have three major initiatives we're working on at the moment: a podcast, a YouTube channel, and a TikTok account. We are also welcoming people to join our overall social media team!

As always, if you have any questions, you can always contact us or email us at thalamus@greymattersjournal.org!

Social Media Team

The SMT assists the social media director with management of social media presence.  This includes content production, platform maintenance, and promotion activities.  Together with the Social Media Director, this role will allow the daily activities on the social media accounts to operate smoothly. The SMT will become more familiar with popular social media platforms such as Instagram and LinkedIn by designing content for our hundreds of followers.

Podcast

Podcasts have become more and more popular in recent years as a great way to learn while occupied with other tasks; Grey Matters is excited to be a part of this new wave! Additionally, we've aim to be as accessible as possible, and a recorded format improves the listening experience for people with disabilities.

Podcasts will primarily be targeted toward reading aloud articles we've produced, and we'll have production groups for them similar to the way we have them for articles. The following positions are open in podcast production groups:

  • Narrators are the voice of the podcast! We just need you for a couple hours to record and you're all set!
  • Editors process the audio after recording to filter out background noise, stitch in clips, and add in some music!
  • Producers oversee the recording process, equipment, and coach narrators and editors through the process.

Podcast applications for Winter 2023 are now open, and are due Sunday, jan 15, at 11:59pm. Apply here!

YouTube

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is quite literally thousands of images. As EWN has helped us grow our YouTube channel, we've become more and more interested in creating animated videos that partner with our articles. We'd also like to introduce greater coverage of Grey Matters' activities and interviews from neuroscientists in the area. This fall, we're getting these ideas off the ground!

The following positions are open on the YouTube team:

  • Video Editors stitch together our videos and reformat and cut clips to be posted to other social media platforms!
  • Animators will create the animated, educational clips that partner with our articles to streamline our content!
  • Script Editors work with authors, interviewers, and event coordinators to collect footage and plan videos!
  • Analysts keep us posted on how our videos are doing on various social media platforms and work to boost interaction!

TikTok

We're envisioning TikTok to be a great space for Grey Matters to share fun factoids, explain useful concepts, and meme about the process! Our current page is here, give it some likes, comments, shares, and a follow!

If you're interested in helping out with making content for it, submit the application here, and we'll get back to you! Applications are rolling.
