Science Media Studentships now open for applications
13 November 2012
Our Science Media Studentships support biomedical scientists who want to explore a career in science broadcasting. They offer financial support for practising biomedical scientists to undertake a postgraduate qualification in Science Media Production at Imperial College London and follow this with a six-month placement working in the broadcast industry.
Our research shows that the overwhelming majority of the public regard television as their most significant source of information about science. We believe that the broadcast media should represent and reflect all areas of science and culture, and therefore should be produced by people from a variety of different backgrounds.
We aim to increase the crossover between science and the media and to enable bright, articulate and motivated scientists to explore a career in the broadcast industry.
To apply, you should be a practising biomedical scientist wishing to explore a career in the broadcast media. You must have a PhD or equivalent, some experience of science communication, and a demonstrable aptitude for working with TV, radio or film.
If you are interested, please contact Liam Watson, administrator of Imperial College’s Science Communication Group, on +44 (0)20 7594 8753 or at firstname.lastname@example.org - or visit the Imperial MSc web page.
Applications must be received by 25 February 2013.
