About NeuRA

Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA) is a leading independent medical research institute whose vision is to prevent and cure disease and disability of the brain and nervous system through leadership, excellence and innovation in neuroscience research. NeuRA has world-class research facilities and is based at Randwick in Sydney.

About the role

Are you an enthusiastic social media and digital communications professional who is interested in working with Australia’s leading researchers and bringing exposure to their findings? 

Do you love producing compelling content across Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other channels? 

In this role you will be managing NeuRA’s social media accounts, updating the organisation’s website via Word Press, and assisting with the production of videos and photographs.

This role will suit someone with 2-3 years’ experience who is motivated and enthusiastic to learn.  You will be a go-getter who is keen to knock on the doors of researchers, develop a calendar of upcoming material, and create engaging communications material. 

NeuRA has a vast array of fascinating stories to tell.  In any given week you will be working on discoveries about new parts of the brain or how we can use new virtual reality headsets to repair spinal cords.

The Digital Communications Officer will also work with counterparts at partner organisations and support the campaigns run by NeuRA’s fundraising teams. 

Our state-of-the-art building contains a car crash test facility, a brain bank with more than 600 preserved brains, a sleep lab and a falls and balances centre.  It also has large teams researching dementia, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia – which are among Australia’s greatest health challenges. 

Our values

Our values are the essence of our organisation – they are the principles that we live by, and are at the core of everything we do. NeuRA’s values are: Innovation. Excellence. Integrity. Leadership. Human impact.
