Update March 18:
Yay! We got 40 new people interested in helping out with the blog, which means that the volunteers only need to post 1x per month. It will also mean that the posts might be a bit more variable from day to day, or that there might be an error here and there. Please be kind to all the new people as they are learning to post. This is all volunteer work and I am so grateful for their help.

Do you love #MicrobiomeDigest.com and/or #SciCom ? MicrobiomeDigest.com needs 10 to 20 more volunteers for the daily updates! Without new volunteers we will have to shut it down. The more volunteers we have, the fewer times per month each volunteer will need to post. With 20 volunteers total, each person will do a post about 2x per month. It takes 2-3 h to do a post, and you can pick the days you want to post using a sign-up calendar, so it is very flexible.
If you sign up, you will also have the opportunity to use this platform to write your own posts. Anything goes, as long as it is related to microbiology or science. All volunteers have authorship rights, so you can write and upload your own posts as often as you like.
Volunteers need to have some background knowledge of microbiology/microbiome, and be able to screen lists of PubMed or publisher’s alerts for relevant scientific papers.
If you are interested, shoot me an email at eliesbik on the gmail platform (you got this!). In that email, include a short paragraph about yourself. No CV/Resumes are needed, just the willingness to contribute about once or twice a month. Ability to follow these instructions are part of the selection process 🙂
