Applications for the British Science Association’s (BSA) 2017 Media Fellowship are now open.
The Office of Research and Knowledge Exchange has secured two places on this high-profile and prestigious scheme which provides an opportunity for scientists, social scientists, engineers and medical researchers (post-doc and above) to be placed with a UK media host. The fellowship will comprise a training day, placement, attendance at the BSA Festival and a leadership day to present your development and dissemination activities. This is a fabulous opportunity to find out how the media works, to build the skills necessary to improve the reach of your research and to have a lot of fun whilst learning valuable skills.
Two applicants from Manchester Metropolitan will be selected to be official fellows.
