Scientists, social scientists, engineers and clinicians looking to boost their communication skills and confidence can apply now for a British Science Association media fellowship.
Up to 10 fellowships – which aim to help bridge the communication gap between journalists and scientists – are awarded each year.
The scheme is open to researchers from PhD level upwards. It involves spending between three to eight weeks this summer working with hosts including the BBC, Guardian and Nature to produce accurate, well-informed news about developments in science.
Participants will also work alongside the UK’s top science editors in the British Science Festival press centre.
Apply online from 16 January – 11 March 2012
