man of science.jpgDo you excel at explaining phenomena ranging from plate tectonics to nuclear fission using only a pen and a dinner napkin? Doodle double helices—and their accompanying nucleotides? Then listen up, because the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Chevy Chase, Maryland is looking for a new visual Einstein to join the energetic bunch of scientists, educators, graphic designers, film producers, and writers that comprise its Educational Resources Group, which develops multimedia content aimed primarily at high school and college audiences. Need you be able to tell xylem from phloem, ventricles from atria, a chupacabra from an exasperated kangaroo? Probably not, but be ready to wow them with your “outstanding sense of graphic design” and “demonstrated interest and skills in the visual presentation of scientific concepts.” Don’t forget to balance your equation.
