British Science Association Media Fellow 2013

British Science Association

Some good news, I’ve been chosen as one of the 2013 British Science Association Media Fellows. The Guardian newspaper science team chose me for a placement with them in July. I’ll be working on the Science Weekly podcasts (have a listen to some if you haven’t before, they’re really interesting and cover lots of different science topics) and getting some journalistic writing experience covering science news stories. As part of this fellowship I also get the chance to attend the British Science Festival which is held in Newcastle this year. I’ll be reporting back to The Guardian that week on the top stories they might want to cover. Should make a change from my normal job in the lab, better swap my lab book for a reporters notebook and get brushing up on the shorthand!
