Federation Engagement Officer
At the American Institute of Physics (AIP), we believe in the power of the physical sciences to shape a better world. To that end, we have embarked on a new Strategic Framework for 2020-2025 to benefit humanity by advancing, promoting, and serving the physical sciences.
In this newly created position as Federation Engagement Officer, you will build a new department focused on delivering on the first goal of our Strategic Framework: to be a vibrant federation that advances the success of our Member Societies. Reporting to the Deputy Executive Officer (DEO), you will have access to AIP leaders and visibility with stakeholders across the whole physical sciences enterprise as you deliver on our top strategic priority. You will be a catalyst for innovation, helping define the future of physical sciences. We provide the means for Member Societies to pool, coordinate, and leverage their diverse expertise and contributions in pursuit of the shared goal of advancing the physical sciences in the research enterprise, the economy, education, and society. Through partnering with us, our Member Societies broaden their impact and achieve results beyond their individual missions and mandates.
You will empower our Member Societies to better serve their 116,000 members through open dialogue with staff and volunteer leadership to identify areas where we can align AIP resources to support our Member Societies’ strategic goals using AIP’s unique capabilities to complement the outstanding work already being done. You will conduct horizon scanning to understand current and future needs of the Member Societies, assessing both challenges and opportunities, and connect Member Societies to affiliated societies and other relevant organizations, extending our reach to partners with whom we share an aligned mission. Obvious initiatives of interest to our Member Societies already include advocating for diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the physical sciences, government relations, the future of scientific meetings and publishing, and many other areas yet to be explored.
You will know you have been successful when AIP is recognized as a productive and collaborative partner advancing the success of our Member Societies. Our Member Societies trust that we understand their strategic directions and goals, and their individual members and leaders look to AIP as a partner and advisor in their efforts to develop and pursue strategic and tactical initiatives of importance to their communities. Member Societies seek to partner with each other in AIP-convened forums focused on topics of shared interest. AIP is nimble, adaptable, and responsive to Member Society needs, offering a suite of member-only resources and services to advance their success individually and collectively.
The American Institute of Physics is a 501(c)(3) membership corporation of scientific societies. Our mission is to advance, promote and serve the physical sciences for the benefit of humanity. AIP operates as a center of excellence using policy analysis, social science, and historical research to promote future progress in the physical sciences. We are also a federation, advancing the success of our 10 Member Societies. Over the past 400 years, the physical sciences have evolved as a powerful predictive model of our world, enabling stunning technological achievements, and enriching our understanding of the Universe and our place in it. For nearly a century, we have worked to advance, promote, and serve the physical sciences. Following the formation and successful spinoff in 2013 of AIP Publishing, and as we head toward our centenary in 2031, we have adopted a Strategic Framework to guide our operations and evolution for 2020-2025.
