This is a grant-funded position through August 2015. Funding beyond that time is expected, but guaranteed.

QUALIFICATIONS: Demonstrated professional-level writing, web production and project management skills required. Must be highly organized, a stickler for perfect grammar, and comfortable with Final Cut Pro or other video editing software. Experience in WordPress production and development are huge pluses.
