Emerging opportunities – new roles, trainings, and perspectives
In this month’s newsletter, we’re highlighting some emerging opportunities to engage with us, including five preliminary recommendations for the STEM community management landscape from our case studies project, two fantastic new roles (including one at CSCCE!), our community call schedule for the remainder of 2022, and forthcoming trainings in 2023.
As CSCCE continues to grow, we’re now looking for a Director of Operations and Technology to join our senior leadership team, overseeing general operations and the implementation of some new technology solutions. We’d love to hear from you if you’re interested in the role, or please do share the opportunity with your qualified friends and colleagues.
The second position is at URSSI, the US Research Software Sustainability Institute – an organization that we’re excited to partner with over the next couple of years. They’re hiring for a brand new Community Manager role, and the new hire will be coordinating a community of interested parties in the research software ecosystem. They’ll also have access to CSCCE trainings – and work with CSCCE staff on an upcoming, collaborative project.
This month, we’ve also been having some great conversations around the challenges faced by community managers in STEM. At our August community call, we shared some of the emerging trends we’ve noticed while analyzing our 25 Community Manager Case Studies and discussed how they resonate with our members. We also shared some draft recommendations that we’ll be making in a forthcoming report, which you can also check out in the recap blog post from the call. We’ll be continuing these conversations throughout the fall, so make sure to mark your calendars and join us at a community call.

Community Engagement Fundamentals
The fall 2022 cohort of Scientific Community Engagement (CEF) has sold out, but we’re taking pre-registrations for 2023. CEF is our foundational training for STEM community managers, an 8-week online course that introduces core frameworks and vocabulary that you can apply to your work.
CSCCE’s Community Manager Certification Program builds upon CEF to create a longer-form, multi-component, online program for STEM community managers. We are currently conducting focus groups to refine some of the details, and we welcome your feedback via this online form.
Each CSCCE community manager case study provides a two-page snapshot of how an individual community manager came to their role, what activities they support, and what they most enjoy about their work. In a forthcoming report, we’ll share emerging trends from a meta-analysis of these case studies.
August community call recap: Reflecting on the role of the community manager in STEM
On this month’s community call, we shared some of the observations we’ve made as we analyzed the 25 community manager case studies looking for commonalities and indicators. In this recap blog post you can watch recordings from the call as well as review our draft recommendations to address some of the challenges community managers face.
Community calls: A deep dive into community manager roles in STEM
This fall, we’ll be continuing the conversation started on the August call and discuss topics related to STEM community management such as career advancement, self-advocacy, and evolving metrics for success that are meaningful to funders and institutions. We hope you’ll join us and share your perspectives.
