2019 Ocean Science Journalism Fellowship in Massachusetts

Deadline – May 18, 2019

The Wood Hole Oceanographic Institute’s Ocean Science Journalism Fellowship is a one-week, residential experience open to professional science writers, producers, and editors working for print, broadcast, radio, and Internet media. Created in 2000, the program is designed to introduce science journalists to the interdisciplinary and wide-ranging fields of oceanography and ocean engineering.

Through seminars, laboratory visits, and brief field expeditions, Ocean Science Journalism Fellows gain access to new research findings and to fundamental background information in engineering, marine biology, geology and geophysics, marine chemistry and geochemistry, and physical oceanography. Topics range from harmful algal blooms to deep-sea hydrothermal vents; from seafloor earthquakes to ice-sheet dynamics; from the ocean’s role in climate change to the human impact on fisheries and coastline change; from ocean instruments and observatories to underwater robots.

The ideal candidates will have at least two years of writing, producing, or editing experience for a general-interest audience. Freelancers, book authors, and writers from non-traditional media may also be considered but should be able to show a substantial portfolio of work. WHOI covers travel expenses for all fellows and room and board for one week. International journalists are welcome to apply but must include English translations of their work samples.

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution is the world’s leading, an independent non-profit organization dedicated to ocean research, exploration, and education. Their scientists and engineers push the boundaries of knowledge about the ocean to reveal its impacts on the planet.
