The College Research and Knowledge Transfer Office website is still being developed.  Once this site is available you will be able to access all the latest funding information.

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 3-6 weeks on a summer placement with a press, broadcast or online journalist such as the Guardian, The Times or BBC.

You will work with them to produce well informed, newsworthy pieces about developments in science.

Come away better equipped to communicate your research to the media, public and your colleagues.

You will develop writing skills that could help you produce concise and engaging articles and funding applications.

For details about the scheme, including eligibility and online application form, visit our webpage.

Application deadline: 11 March 2013

Eliot Marston is happy to talk to anyone who has an interest - worth considering, providing you could get support from your PI.
