Senior Editor, Research and Academic Communications
Scott Irlbeck serves as senior editor in the Office of the Vice President for Research at Texas Tech. In this role, he develops content and communicates the university’s key academic messages through written stories, video productions and audio podcasts.
Before moving to his current position, Scott spent six years as producer and multimedia editor for the Office of Communications and Marketing at Texas Tech where he scheduled and conducted interviews, developed scripts, and oversaw final production for video and audio projects.
Scott enjoys his job because he is always working on different projects with a variety of people across campus. He is always amazed at the many faculty and student research projects going on at any given time.
In addition to working at Texas Tech, Scott and his wife own a farm where he grew up near Tulia, just a little more than an hour’s drive north of Lubbock. He spends some of his time as a “weekend” farmer, especially during the busy spring and summer months growing wheat and grain sorghum.
Scott’s work experience includes six years as a news producer/reporter for KAMC/KLBK–TV before coming to Texas Tech. He worked for two years as the communications coordinator for Texas Tech’s Fiber and Biopolymer Research Institute. He is a graduate of Texas Tech with a degree in journalism.
