Journalist-in-Residence Fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science:
Guest residencies for journalists with a focus on the history of science
The Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, offers guest residencies of up to two months each in the academic year 2017/18. The objectives of the Fellowship program are to support high-quality journalism in the area of the history of science, promote the public dissemination of topics in the history of science, and strengthen the dialogue that the history of science enables among the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. At the same time, the program offers scholars at the Institute the opportunity to find ways of enhancing the public communication of their research.
We welcome applications from the fields of print, radio, and especially online journalism. Your application should include a curriculum vitae, three samples of your work with relevance to the history of science, evidence of extensive experience in journalism, a brief portrait of your own journalistic work, a short outline (max. half a page) of your proposed research during your stay at the Institute, and details of your preferred dates.
