WGBH and the Rita Allen Foundation have partnered to create the Rita Allen Fellowship for Science Communication. This is a unique, one-year opportunity for an innovative professional to study the field of science media, experiment with media formats, and work to expand science literacy among the public.

We are seeking candidates who are early-to mid-career science media producers, journalists, or working scientists with a commitment to science communication. The Fellow will have an office at WGBH in Boston, one of the pre-eminent science media producers in the U.S. and home to the flagship public media science series NOVA. The fellowship will begin January 31, 2018. It will last one year and is a full-time, paid position.

Applications for the fellowship are due June 30, 2017, and selection of the fellow will be announced at the beginning of September 2017. More information, including how to apply, can be found
