About the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (the Bulletin) is a non-profit media organization, publishing a free-access website and a bimonthly magazine. The Bulletin’s website, iconic Doomsday Clock, and regular events equip the public, policymakers, and scientists with the information needed to reduce manmade threats to our existence. The Bulletin focuses on three main areas: nuclear risk; climate change; and disruptive technologies such as cyber security, artificial intelligence, and bioengineering. What connects these topics is a driving belief that because humans created them, we can control them.

Over the years, its supporters, allies, and board members have included such prominent figures as Albert Einstein, J. Robert Oppenheimer, Steven Hawking, Andrei Sakharov, Jennifer Doudna and 40 Nobel Laureates.

The Opportunity  

The Bulletin is seeking to add three new Governing Board members who are excited to build the next chapter of an iconic journalism organization with a national and international reputation. While an interest in the mission of the Bulletin is needed, no professional Science experience is necessary. New Governing Board members should have ONE of the following skills and talents:

  • Development Acumen
  • Financial and Investment Guidance
  • Digital Media Expertise
  • The Business of Journalism

Successful candidates may be based anywhere in the U.S.
