The USASP Needs A New Program Coordinator

The United States Association for the Study of Pain (USASP)
The mission of the United States Association for the Study of Pain (USASP) is to promote scientific advances that reduce the burden of pain. Our goal is to bring diverse perspectives, including those of scientists, clinicians, health-care providers, and policymakers, together to stimulate and support the study of pain and to translate that knowledge into improved pain relief.

As an organization, USASP represents scientists nationwide who collaboratively research, diagnose, and treat pain in the United States. Membership remains open to scientists, professionals, and community members interested in our mission to provide pain relief while placing people first.

Are you an organized, dedicated individual who values the work of non-profits?  Are you curious, self-motivated, and willing to jump into new projects and see them through while working independently? Do you have experience working with Google Workspace, QuickBooks, and all Office products? If the answer to all these questions is yes, then you may be exactly the person for whom we are searching.

The USASP is looking for a Program Coordinator who will work remotely with daily communication between organizational leads, reporting to the Treasurer and the President.  We formed about one year ago and are in a period of rapid and sustained growth in membership and in the initiation of a wide range of projects reflecting the interests of our organization.  As sole staff member, you will be the primary administrative backbone for the development and maintenance of our non-profit organization centered around the development and study of pain research.  We are looking for someone with good social skills, excellent organizational skills, and an ability to work independently on many projects simultaneously.  Comfort with a range of computer applications is essential and a basic understanding of website maintenance would be beneficial.
