For over 25 years, arXiv.org has supported scientists to share their papers ahead of formal publication to enable rapid dissemination and sharing of their work across scientific communities. Around the world, it is recognized as an essential resource for the scientists that it serves. Since arXiv's inception in August 1991, more than 1.3 million scientific papers have been uploaded and shared as the submission rate exceeds more than 10,000 papers in a single month. Cornell University Library (transitioning to Computing and Information Science in January 2019) serves as the steward organization for arXiv.org, with the Program Director at CUL leading the arXiv organization in collaboration with the arXiv Scientific Director and with guidance from a Scientific Advisory Board, a Member Advisory Board, and an international community of scientific subject area moderators. Support for arXiv comes from the Simons Foundation, Cornell University, and a global collective of 200 institutional members. In addition, foundations such as the Sloan Foundation and Heising-Simons Foundation provide generous funding in support of the arXiv next-gen initiative.
Reporting to the arXiv Executive Director, the Community Engagement and Development Coordinator will design and implement an outreach and marketing program to engage educational institutions in arXiv's membership program and design fundraising strategies to increase arXiv's revenues through various methods including grant writing and online campaigns.
