The Center for Open Science (COS) has a mission to increase openness, integrity, and reproducibility of research. In service of that mission, a plethora of content has been generated by COS and many others in the open science community. The impact of this content would be much greater if it can be captured and curated at a central hub.
Instructional Designer Position
The primary purpose of this short term (6-12 months) contract position is to review, consolidate, and organize this educational content (text, slides, videos, papers) into an open knowledge base to support education and application of open scholarship. This position will also assist the formation of community leadership, editorial, and contribution process for the knowledge base to advance its sustainability as a community resource of knowledge and materials.

For example, the Knowledge Base will include guidance for preregistration including an introduction to the topic, depth content for specific issues, and implementation guidance for using different platforms. Moreover, components will be modular to facilitate service distinct research communities such as applying preregistration to model-based design research.
