SMA Seeks Digital Communications Manager

The SMA is seeking a digital communications manager who will be responsible for preparing, editing, and distributing news to members of the SMA and beyond. This is an excellent opportunity for an advanced graduate student with broad knowledge of medical anthropology, strong writing and editorial skills, a sophisticated understanding of professional uses for digital media, and the ability to work independently.
