Be behind the headlines

15 Feb, 2012

Posted on behalf of our colleagues at the British Science Association.

Scientists, social scientists, engineers and clinicians can experience life in the heart of the newsroom by applying for a British Science Association 2012 Media Fellowship.

Spend 3-8 weeks this summer working with hosts including the BBC, Guardian and Nature to produce accurate, well-informed news about developments in science, and work alongside the UK’s top science editors in the British Science Festival Press Centre. 

Return to work with media confidence, contacts, and first-class communication skills.

My greater understanding of how the press works means I will now be able to pitch my research in a more accessible way to journalists so we both get the story we want.”

Media Fellow

Apply online. Deadline 11 March 2012.

The British Science Association Media Fellowships are funded by the Wellcome Trust, RCUK, BBSRC, STFC and IET.
