Experience life as a science journalist

Do you have an enthusiasm for science communication and a willingness to support the University in its media engagement activities in the future? Then discover, first hand, what it’s like to work as a science journalist.

The scheme offers practising scientists, clinicians, engineers and social sciences and arts academics the opportunity to spend two to six weeks working at the heart of a media outlet such as the Guardian, BBC Breakfast, BBC Radio 4 Science Unit, BBC News Online, The Times, Nature News, The Conversation.

After their media placement Fellows attend the British Science Festival in September, which provides an opportunity to gain valuable experience working alongside a range of media organisations from all over the UK in the BSA’s dedicated Press Centre.

As a fully trained Media Fellow it is hoped that they will provide support for in-house media training and actively encourage other researchers at the University to get involved with the media.
