Can you turn the latest science into news?

Scientists, social scientists, engineers and clinicians can experience life in the heart of the newsroom by applying for a British Science Association 2012 Media Fellowship.

Spend 3-8 weeks this summer working with hosts including the BBC, Guardian and Nature to produce accurate, well-informed news about developments in science, and work alongside the UK's top science editors in the British Science Festival Press Centre.

Return to work with media confidence, contacts, and first-class communication skills.

"My greater understanding of how the press works means I will now be able to pitch my research in a more accessible way to journalists so we both get the story we want." Media Fellow
