Marine Biological Laboratory Science Journalism fellowships now open

The Marine Biological Laboratory at the University of Chicago is inviting applications for its Science Journalism Program fellowships for science, health and environmental journalists.

The environmental hands-on research program involves a ten-day program of “field and laboratory science immersion at the MBL in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, a world center for marine, biomedical, and environmental science, and at an environmental field research site on Cape Cod.”

The biomedical hands-on research program offers “exposure to the fundamental techniques and concepts of cell and molecular biology that provide the basic elements underlying many approaches to modern-day biomedical research” at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, Massachusetts.

Four individuals from each group will also be selected to spend four days at the University of Chicago and attend the Science Innovation Summit there. The fellowships cover travel, room and board, lab fees and all activities associated with the program. Applications close 1 March 2018, and details can be found here.
