We get lots of queries from researchers who want to inspire others about science. If you’re considering a career in science communication, then work experience is essential. There are lots of different types of experiences that would help you break into the field, and the British Science Association’s media fellowships will certainly help you to get ahead (not least because it involves a rare opportunity to work with the BBC). See details below!
Do you want to put science in the headlines?
If you do then the British Science Association Media Fellowships are for you.
Experience first-hand how science is reported by spending 3-5 weeks on a summer placement with BBC Newcastle.
You will work with them to produce well informed, newsworthy pieces about developments in science.
Come away better equipped to engage the media, the public and your colleagues with your research.
