By LSN Editorial Team posted 05-11-2017 02:39



WGBH and the Rita Allen Foundation have partnered to create the Rita Allen Fellowship for Science Communication — a unique, one-year opportunity for an innovative professional to study the field of science media, experiment with media formats, and work to expand science literacy among the public.  We are seeking candidates who are early-to mid-career science media producers, journalists, or working scientists with a commitment to science communication. 

The goal of the fellowship is to identify ways to expand how and to whom science news and information are communicated.  It will also aim to discover new information by experimenting with best practices that will provide all science media producers with tools to reach new audiences more effectively.  

- The Fellow will have an office at WGBH Boston, one of the pre-eminent science media producers in the US and home to the flagship public media science series NOVA.

- The fellowship will begin January 31, 2018 and last one year, and is a fulltime, paid position.

- Applications for the fellowship are due June 30, 2017, and selection of the fellow will be announced at the beginning of September 2017.

- More information, including how to apply, can be found on the website or by contacting fellowship coordinator Judith Vecchione ([email protected])
