Join our mission to deliver global healing:
The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana. Research indicates that psychedelics have the potential to be a breakthrough in treating PTSD, depression, addiction, and other conditions.
MAPS has worked for over 37 years toward paving the way for the education and legalization of such breakthrough medicines. MAPS is committed to bringing these healing modalities to the world and providing them in such a way that communities that most need mental health resources have access to them. This shift has the potential to unlock previously unavailable resources for the investigation of psychedelic-assisted treatments applied to our most critical mental health challenges. The Social Media Manager and Creator will be responsible for creating the strategy of MAPS’ social media presence and must also be able to execute content creation.
How you can help deliver global healing:
MAPS is seeking an experienced social media professional to lead our social media strategy and engagement. The Social Media Manager and Creator will create the organization's social media strategy and be responsible for content creation, posting, and social engagement online to deliver strong, cohesive, and clear brand communications across all social communication platforms. This is a thinking and a creating or doing role.
This work requires someone who shares MAPS’ vision and embraces our mission to develop medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana.
